Santa Monica Animal Control is a full-service animal care and control agency serving the City of Santa Monica. Our shelter houses both stray and owner-surrendered animals from the community, including dogs, cats, rabbits, and the occasional bird or reptile.
We have some fantastic pets just waiting for someone to give them their forever home. Prospective adopters are welcome to drop by and meet the animals. If you find a buddy you'd like to get to know better, we have several areas for you to socialize with them in. Our staff members and volunteers will gladly assist with the adoption process and provide you with advice about an animal's temperament and compatibility with your living situation.
The Santa Monica Animal Shelter is open seven days a week (except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day).
Our opening hours are:
To reach the shelter, approach westbound on Olympic Boulevard (a one-way street). Turn right at 9th Street (one block before Lincoln Blvd.). The Shelter is at the end of the cul-de-sac on your left.
