Due to COVID-19 we are unsure of when we will be allowed to have off-site adoption events. If you are interested in adopting please schedule an appointment with Stockton Animal Shelter: AnimalServices@StocktonCA.Gov or call (209) 937-7445 12PM–5PM Monday – Friday. Stay safe and healthy!

Please note, adopters must be at least 18 years old and present valid photo ID w/ proof of address. We will make every effort to help you find the most appropriate companion animal. We reserve the right to refuse an adoption.

Other Animals for Adoption

Every now and then the Stockton Animal Shelter takes in animals such as rabbits, or guinea pigs. Because they are not commonly at the shelter, they do not offer spay/neuter services, immunizations or microchipping. The shelter does NOT take in reptiles or farm animals. Please contact the Stockton Animal Shelter to check the availability of animals other than dogs or cats.


Working/Barn Cats

APL will provide a cage and food for a week until your working cat is acclimated. Working cats will be spayed/neutered, with necessary immunizations, flea control. They will not be microchipped; instead, they will have their ear tipped to indicate that they’ve been sterilized. Please contact the Stockton Animal Shelter to check the availability of barn/working cats.
