The East County Animal Shelter receives and houses stray animals that are found within our jurisdiction (Dublin, Pleasanton, Livermore, and unincorporated areas of Alameda County). Our primary function is reuniting lost pets with their current owners, however adoptable pets that go unclaimed will be available for adoption to new homes. The shelter is operated by Alameda County Animal Control, which provides animal control field services for the city of Dublin, and all unincorporated parts of Alameda County. If you have found a lost pet, the telephone number for our field services dispatch is 510-667-7763.
Please note: We do not post pets as available for adoption until their stray hold period has ended. Because of this, there are always more pets available for viewing at the shelter than are currently listed online. All pets listed online have fulfilled their legal stray hold and are now available for adoption.
All adoptions take place in person at the East County Animal Shelter. Our address is 4595 Gleason Drive, Dublin, CA 94568. Our phone number is 925-803-7040. We are open seven days a week (excluding county holidays) from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm. Please arrive early enough to give yourself time to get acquainted with your prospective new pet before we can begin the adoption paperwork. Please contact the shelter for information about adoption fees.
