Adoptable adult dogs are tested for Heartworm and both adults and pups are put on a preventative.
Adoptable cats are tested for FeLV, FIV, and Heartworm.
Prior to adoption from Animal Services or Calaveras Humane Society the animals are spayed/neutered and microchipped.
All the animals are vaccinated and evaluated by dedicated shelter staff and CHS volunteers.
How CHS Helps
We provide the county shelter with volunteers who assist in caring for the animals and promoting adoptions.
Are you are part of Calaveras County Animal Control?
No but we help them by providing volunteers and listing available pets on our web site.
How can I choose?
Many cats remain at the county shelter due to limited foster space. Dogs are always housed at the shelter. You do a great service by adopting an animal from the shelter and into a loving home.
