If the animal is not available call in for more information at (909) 384-1304 to be placed on an interested party list. Maximum of 3 interested parties per animal. 

Please note, the last adoption meet and greet must be concluded by 4:30pm to be able to complete the adoption process. The shelter begins closing for the day from 4:30 to 5:00pm.
