FEATURED PET:

Anyone would be SO lucky to have this sweet girl. She is a true people-lover. Great companion dog who wants to do nothing but please her owner and love them to death. I know this, because that's how she is with me and other people at the shelter; I take her out to play almost every day. Baby Girl is just so loyal and friendly, and you can tell she REALLY enjoys the attention I give her and she loves to be loved. She sometimes likes to have a little run around the yard, but then when she's finished she comes right back to sit or lay by my side as I pet her (and hug her and lean all over her and play with her cute squishy face!) and she just loves the attention. She is a very affectionate girl. And she also gives the most polite little nose kisses. TOO CUTE! This girl really is a fantastic dog, and I wish so badly that I could have her myself. But since I can't, I hope she goes to a really deserving owner (please spoil her for me, she deserves it!). Someone please rescue this sweet little gem before it's too late. She will be the best decesion you ever made!

Name: Baby Girl. Click on her picture or ID number to view her listing page.

THE SPAY SHUTTLE: Low-cost Pet Spay/Neuter in Palm Beach County

The Spay Shuttle provides services to all Palm Beach County residents. It currently operates Wednesdays through Saturdays, except during a holiday week. If you currently have a scheduled appointment, please arrive on time.

Please call 561-233-SPAY (7729) for dates and location sites, or to schedule an appointment. Space is limited and appointments are not always available.

If you do not have an appointment, you are welcome to stand in line in case someone with an appointment does not show up. If this is the case, only an animal fitting the same size and sex can be accepted in its place.

Please be aware that, even with an appointment and because of emergency needs, we may not be able to accept everyone due to space and availability of a veterinarian. In the event of an emergency, all operations of the Spay Shuttle will be shut down until further notice.

Registration is from 8-8:30 a.m. If you plan to stand in line, please plan to wait until all surgery registrations are complete before appointments are scheduled.

Proof of residency is required. Residents with clean, leashed dogs or cats in carriers should begin arriving for processing between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m. each day. After sterilization, pets will be ready to go home with their owners the same afternoon.

The service fee is $15 and includes a rabies vaccination, County tag, and a microchip for pet identification. Other important vaccinations are available for an additional $5. Any pet owner is welcome to visit the Spay Shuttle between 11 and 12 noon for their pet's rabies vaccination and County tag for $5 plus the cost of the tag, which is $35 for pets not spayed or neutered and $15 for sterilized pets.

The Spay Shuttle is set up at various locations throughout the county. Please call 233-SPAY (7729) or 233-1261 for more information.


ABOUT PBCACC:

Animal Care & Control is part of the Palm Beach County Government. Our shelter was started in 1969 and as of November 1992 moved to its new shelter location at 7100 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach, Florida five miles west of I-95.

In 1974, the shelter became a division of the Public Safety Department. Programs and services were expanded in an attempt to keep pace with the growing human and animal population.

In 1980, the division became fully credited by the Humane Society of the United States. Animal Care & Control was the first agency in the southeast and the second in the entire nation to achieve this distinction.

The animal services and programs offered to county residents are:
* Animal law enforcement.
* Pet adoption of stray and unwanted pets.
* Animal sheltering and caring of stray, unwanted, injured and sick pets.
* Computerized pet identification through the rabies license program.
* Pet identification with (EAID) microchipping.
* Rabies vaccinations offered to the public M-F 11:00-5:00, no appointment.

The mission of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control Staff and Volunteers:
* Encourage pet owners to be responsible for pets in their care by providing educational programs on humane treatment, animal behavior training, and proper control.
