We always have so many wonderful and deserving animals here that it's hard to single out just one. We usually have around 200 dogs and 100 cats at any given time, so there is always a variety of pets to choose from!
We are always in need of volunteers to walk and socialize the dogs, spend time with the cats, cleaning, clerical work, handyman work, adoption follow-ups, maintain Petfinder information, take pictures of the adoptable animals, etc...Paint donations will gladly be accepted!! We desperately need to give our shelter a facelift!
As soon as we can get someone to volunteer to take pictures of the animals up for adoption, I will put them in the computer for all of you to view. I know it's important for people to see pictures of the animals. Unfortunately, because we are so busy, we don't have the time or the manpower to do it ourselves! If you're interested in volunteering, please contact Jennifer at 909-384-1304.
Most of our adoptable pets are on AMRT.net with pictures. The site is updated weekly.
Who We Are
San Bernardino City Animal Control services the cities of San Bernardino and Fontana, as well as houses the animals of Loma Linda and Colton. We respond to citizen complaints of stray dogs, injured/sick/dead animals, dog bites, abuse/neglect cases, sanitation problems, and illegal fowl/animals. We usually have a population of 200 dogs and 100 cats. When a stray animal comes to our shelter we hold them for 4 days, not including the day they came in or Sundays, Mondays or holidays. Unfortunately 87% of the animals are euthanized, only 3% are redeemed by their owners, and only 10% are adopted to new families. We are trying to raise the adoption percentage by putting our adoptable animals on Petfinder!
Adopting a friend
We have several wonderful cats/kittens, and dogs/puppies for adoption! The adoption fees are $55.00 which does not include the cost of neutering. The neuter fees are paid for at the vet when you pick up your new family member.
The fees include the adoption fee, one set of vaccinations, and a microchip. The animals do not go home the same day they are adopted. We transport them to the vet the following business day, which is where they are picked up by the new owner and the alter charges are also paid at time of pick up.
We accept cash, checks, and several credit cards for adoption transactions.
