All About Us

Animal Services

The Rohnert Park Animal Shelter is run by the City of Rohnert Park under the direction of the Department of Public Safety.  We currently contract with the City of Cotati to provide sheltering services for stray animals and will accept in owner surrenders from their residents as our space allows.

Giving Animals A Second Chance

As a municipal, open-admissions shelter we receive in animals that are found stray within our jurisdiction, animals that owners no longer can care for, as well as injured and abused animals.  We also hold animals that are under bite quarantine for rabies control.  Our annual intake averages about 1,200 animals – down from a high of 2,100 animals in 1999.

Through our proactive monthly Fix-it Clinics we offer our residents Low-cost spays/neuters for dogs and cats to reduce the number of kittens and puppies that come through our door.  Our declining number of intakes show that this approach is paying off!

Our “No More Lost Pets” program, generously funded by the Animal Shelter League of Rohnert Park, offers our residents FREE ID tags and Microchips to assure that every lost pet has a way to be reunited with their worried parents.

We work tirelessly to find good homes for every animal in our care and provide top-notch veterinary care for those in need.  Through your generous support we are able to go above and beyond in our ability to help animals get the second chance they deserve.
