New Shelter Hours

Starting Monday, November 1st, we will be altering our shelter hours to be open from 10am to 4pm Monday-Saturday at the Western Riverside and Coachella Valley locations. Blythe will remain open by appointment.

The services people can walk-in for during these hours include: adoptions, stray intake, and owner returns. Appointments still need to be made for owner relinquishment of pets, vaccinations, and spay/neuter.
