Things are really "Hoppin" at Yuba County Animal Care Services. We would like you to meet Gary, formally known as Grace (ID#A144108), a male Dutch mix rabbit. Gary is an adorable cuddle bun looking for a "Forever Family". He enjoys being petted and held. One of his favorite past-times includes looking adorable! Gary will greet you on his hind legs every time you walk past him, eager for attention and love. Who could resist this face? Obviously not the staff at the shelter! At any given time you will find a shelter employee or volunteer carrying Gary around in their arms. We just can't get enough love from this sweet bun. Gary is just one of four special bunnies at the shelter.


Good Morning! My name is Lena (ID#A142573). Shelter staff thinks I am around four years young, but age is only a number right? It's all about how you feel, and I feel amazing. I have been vacationing at the shelter since April 30th and now feel it is time to find a "Forever Home". Don't get me wrong, they treat me really good here. But I want a lap to call my own. I was visiting with one of our volunteers the other day; she is almost ninety-one! I had so much fun sitting on her lap and listening to her tell me how beautiful I am. She was so kind and gentle, so I rewarded her with lots of purrs and head butts. I still have many more to give, so if you are looking for someone who enjoys quiet times and togetherness, "I could be that someone for you"!

Top 5 Reasons to Volunteer at Your Local Animal Shelter

1. Be part of the solution. You'll join a network of hundreds of thousands of people working to make the world safe and more humane for all living creatures. Don't feel sympathy for lost, neglected and homeless animals. Step up and take action to make each day the best it can be for them when they need help the most.

2.Get the warm fuzzies. You'll never find a more grateful and accepting comrade than an animal you've comforted.

3.Keep good company. You'll make lots of new friends... and not just the four legged kind. Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge lifelong friendships.

4.Meet the new you. You'll discover skills you never knew you had and you may be surprised at what you are capable of achieving.

5.Enjoy a wagging tail, a purr and a smile. Didn't someone once say the best things in life are free?

Our volunteer application process involves several steps. As a part of the Yuba County Sheriff's Department all applicants will ultimately go through a paper application process, a complete background check and fingerprinting. To find out more about the volunteer experience and to begin the application process, stop by the shelter to pick up an application.



Donate a Bed
Our dogs and cats love to sleep on Kuranda beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another dog or cat to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda bed.

With the cold weather upon us we are in great need of blankets, and towels.

Bags of dry kitten food

Canned Cat food - Pate' type only

We are also looking for materials to build two covered get acquainted areas, so families looking to adopt can spend some quality quiet time with the animals. (need fencing, concrete)

We would like to thank Petco Foundation for the wonderful grant that made it possible for our dreams of a sound/pa system come to life. Our shelter animals are more relaxed and happier because of the Petco Foundation.

Caring For Your Pet

Here are some helpful hints for responsible pet owners:

· Provide your pet with veterinary care on a regular basis and if the animal becomes ill or injured.

· Keep the animal as a pet and companion. Don’t use it as a guard dog, fighting dog, for experimentation or any unethical use.

· Get your pet spayed or neutered to help reduce animal overpopulation.

· License your dog. Proof of a rabies certificate is required.

· Put an identification tag on your cat.

· Our Center scans all animals entering our shelter. We recommend seeing your veterinarian to have your pet micro-chipped as a means of permanently identifying your pet. Rest assured that if your pet is lost, scanning can help point the way home.

Adopting a friend

Many lovable pets at Animal Care Services are waiting for their own "Forever Home". To see the many animals available for adoption at our shelter please go to...


We cannot guarantee that the pets on our site are still available as they are frequently adopted. Please visit or call our shelter (530) 741-6478 to check on the current status of the animal you are interested. For us to assist you, we will need the Animal ID number. Our policy is that pet adoptions are on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVICE basis.


DOGS - $50.00

PUPPIES - under 4 months of age $50.00

CATS - $50.00

KITTENS - under 4 months of age $48.00


Dogs and Cats 4 months and older must be spayed or neutered before they go home with an adopter. The surgery is performed the next available business day with a contracted veterinarian. The adopter picks up his/her altered animal in the afternoon before the vet hospital closes.


Dogs receive DA2PPV vaccinations. Cats receive the FVRCP vaccinations.


Rabies vaccinations are for dogs and cats over the age of 4 months.


Puppies and Kittens less than 4 months of age, adoption fee is $50 for puppies and $48 for kittens. $40 is refundable when proof of spay/neuter is provided within 30 days of adoption.


As a community service to people adopting pets from Animal Care Services, participating veterinarians will provide a physical examination for your new pet so that you may be assured that it is in good health. This is free-of-charge to you, BUT DOES NOT include vaccinations, medication, or lab work. Such treatments are elective and provided at your own expense.


A one-year license $10 (in addition to adoption fees) applies only for those who reside in the unincorporated areas of Yuba County and within the City of Wheatland. If an adopter lives outside the city limits of Wheatland and the unincorporated areas of Yuba County, then he/she will need to license his/her pet within their local jurisdiction.

If you have recently adopted a pet, we hope you and your new pet will be very happy together.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Although we take every precaution concerning the health and well-being of our shelter animals, no guarantee of any kind can be given regarding the condition of an adopted animal. Please understand that any medical bills incurred for your pet will be solely your own financial responsibility.

Most of the animals come to us with unknown medical histories. Therefore, a complete check-up and vaccination by a veterinarian are a must. To ensure the happy and healthy life of your newly adopted family member, we urge you to have your pet examined routinely by a veterinarian.
