Adoption information for cats, dogs, bunnies, and more.
Front Street Animal Shelter - City of Sacramento has dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens for adoption. Adopt a pet in Sacramento, California.
Shelters like the Sacramento SPCA care for thousands of homeless and surrendered animals each year. Because of limited space and resources, not all animals are able to receive the help they so desperately need. Spaying and/or neutering your dog will ensure more dogs are not surrendered to the Sacramento SPCA. While all breeds are at risk for overpopulation and homelessness, a high percentage of animals surrendered at community shelters are pit bull and pit bull mixes (pit bull/mixes). In 2015, 22% of dogs surrendered to the Sacramento SPCA were classified as pit bull or pit bull mixes.
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Surveillance cameras captured a dog’s death at an animal shelter, and critics say this wasn’t the only animal killing that could have and should have been avoided.

Our Mission Statement... Sacramento Independent Animal Rescuers is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our purpose is to aid stray, abandoned, and neglected animals. In addition to animals rescued and adopted by our organization, SIAR is also dedicated to help other independent animal rescuers find their foster animals the loving homes they deserve. To date, over 1100 dogs and cats have been rescued and placed into wonderful homes in the past few years. In order to provide these services, we work with the community shelters, rescue organizations, and individuals who have animals with special needs and place these animals in permanent homes after they reach a stage of wellness. PB SOC is a group of volunteers dedicated to bettering the lives of dogs–with a focus on pit bull-types–during their stay at the Bradshaw Animal Shelter of Sacramento, California. We approach every dog as an individual, with the understanding that physical appearance does not determine behavior. Our program continues to expand as we learn, grow, and find better ways to serve shelter dogs.The Sacramento SPCA takes in abandoned animals and provides a safe, nurturing and healthy environment. SPCA offers the best services in the Sacramento area, while seeking to promote the well-being of animals that have suffered abuse, neglect and abandonment. Pet care and behavior is important to the SPCA. It provides training classes in dog etiquette, spay and neuter services, microchips and vaccination. If you are having difficulties caring for your animal and would like to place it in a shelter, contact SPCA.Please visit our local shelters or work with a rescue group to adopt a dog or cat. Adopt and save a life! In 2012, in Sacramento County alone, 6,599 cats were euthanized in our shelters and 5,246 dogs were killed. The vast majority were healthy or treatable animals!
