Home for the Holidays
Tulare County Animal Control is celebrating with special adoption prices. Throughout the months of November and December take $20 off our regular adoption fees. Dogs and cats that come into the shelter already spayed or neutered are only $10-$20 to adopt. Dogs that have not been spayed or neutered yet are $70 and cats are $50. This includes a deposit toward the cost of getting the animal spayed or neutered, a rabies vaccination and a microchip. A $10 license fee applies for dogs in the county. All adoptions include a free wellness visit, a coupon for Science Diet dog or cat food, and a leash or a cat carrier.
HomeAgain Microchips for dogs and cats are only $20. Available Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 4:30 pm. Distemper parvo (DHLPP) and bordatella vaccinations for dogs and upper respiratory (FVRCP) vaccinations for cats are also available for $5 each.

The Tulare County Animal Shelter focuses on good adoptions. We take every effort to ensure the dog or cat and it's new family are a good match. As our mission statement indicates: "We are committed to reducing animal overpopulation by promoting adoptions, advocating for the welfare of animals by operating spay/neuter and humane education programs, encouraging responsible pet ownership and demonstrating respect for all living things." With this in mind, the shelter staff and volunteers advocate for good placement of our animals.
Please come visit our shelter Monday through Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm. Come see us at 14131 Avenue 256 in Visalia or call the shelter at 559-636-4050 for more information. Spayed and neutered cats are also available for adoption at both Petsmart and Petco in Visalia and Petsmart in Porterville. Help give an animal a second chance at love.
