During the COVID-19 shelter in place order, the Antioch Animal Shelter is operating on an appointment only basis. To visit the shelter to adopt a pet, or to schedule a Meet & Greet with one of our pets, please contact us at 925-779-6989 to make an appointment.
If you are adopting a dog and have other dogs in the household, we recommend you bring them with you, as well, to ensure compatibility.
All adopters must present Government Issued Identification at time of adoption.
Everyone is welcome to adopt a pet from Antioch Animal Services. You do NOT have to be a resident of Antioch. However, if you are an Antioch resident, and you adopt a dog, you are required to purchase a 1-year dog license for $20.00, at the time of adoption.
Cats: $90.00 adoption fee – This fee includes having the cat surgically altered at the animal shelter, the FVRCP vaccination fee, Rabies vaccination fee (if the cat is over 4 months old), and the microchip fee.
