A Place for Animals, People and Community
We are the County of Santa Clara Animal Services Center- Dedicated to saving and improving the lives of animals in our communities. As one of the first public shelters to reach a "no-kill" live-release rate of 90% or greater since 2015, we are proud to have a team dedicated to saving animal lives. We take in about 4,000 beating hearts each year, from pot-bellied pigs to parakeets. We strive to reunite lost pets with their families while finding homes for those still in need. We facilitate adoptions and engage volunteers who share our mission. We care for the sick and injured and reduce pet overpopulation through affordable spay and neuter services. We investigate complaints, cruelty, and neglect. We rescue livestock in-need and assist with injured wildlife. We serve people and animals in a disaster. We partner to save animal lives, enriching human lives in the process. Four-legged, feathered, hooved, horned—we help them all! We do it with dedication, compassion, optimism—and the support of people like you.
We proudly provide services to the cities of Morgan Hill, Gilroy and the unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County.
