Our Vision

“Create a balance between the population of domestic animals and responsible homes to care for them within the County of Sonoma.”

Our Mission is to:

  • Protect the health and safety of people and animals.
  • Investigate and prosecute animal cruelty, abuse and neglect.
  • Educate the public about responsible domestic animal ownership.
  • Reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter programs.
  • Provide a safe environment for animals in need.
  • Place adoptable animals into caring homes.

What We Do

Sonoma County Animal Services is committed to serving the public in the care and well being of animals, both domestic and livestock, throughout the unincorporated areas of Sonoma County, the city of Santa Rosa and the town of Windsor. The Shelter is operated by Sonoma County Animal Services, a division of the Department of Health Services.

The Shelter offers such diverse services as finding homes for adoptable animals, providing shelter for stray animals, offering assistance to owners and finders of lost animals, providing limited veterinary care, and maintaining pet licensing. In addition, the Shelter sponsors various community education and outreach programs throughout the year. The Shelter's field services include rescue and care of injured or distressed animals, rabies control, investigation of reports of animal abuse and neglect, and the enforcement of animal regulation laws and ordinances.

In addition to its on-site and field personnel, the Shelter is assisted by the efforts of our volunteers who work with the animals in our care and participate in various education and fundraising programs.
