The City of San Jose created the Animal Care & Services division in 2001. This was in response to the Humane Society Silicon Valley's notification that they could no longer continue providing shelter and field service contracts for Santa Clara County cities. With the completion of the City of San Jose new Animal Care Center, the City of San Jose itself is now providing shelter and field services for San Jose residents and for residents of Cupertino, Los Gatos, Milpitas and Saratoga.
Adopting a friend
Our Animal Care Center has many wonderful pets to adopt. All are in desperate need of a loving home. If you are thinking about adding a new pet to your family, please consider one of our animals. We have friendly and knowledgeable staff who can help you choose a pet to best fit in with your needs and lifestyle.
Remember though, adding a pet to your family is a big decision. All animals require training and commitment. Some pets can live well into their teens and many may have special medical needs as they get older (medication, frequent check-ups, etc.) just like people! All these things, including the joy of having a loyal friend, should be factored in before you decide to take on this trusted responsibility
