What's New    

  • Are you in the holiday spirit? Animal Services in Diamond Springs is an official drop off site for Toys for Tots this year. Drop off a new, unwrapped toy for a girl or boy at the shelter in the Toys for Tots container through December 23 and help brighten the holidays for a child in need.  Thank you for your generosity!  
  • Animal Services currently has lots of cats, kittens and dogs available for adoption - See our Adoptable Pets Available Now
  • Own livestock? Animal Services is in the process of updating its database of livestock/farm animals (cattle, equine, swine, sheep, llama, goats, etc.). With your information in our database, we can give you a courtesy call in the event your farm animals get loose. Some restrictions apply. Follow this link to complete the form.

Field Services

Field Services enforces state statutes and county ordinances regulating animal care and welfare, investigates citizens' complaints of animal neglect or nuisance, and responds to reports of loose and injured animals. Animal Services also inspects and licenses animal establishments and kennels.
Non-Emergency Complaint Forms / Ordinance Code

Rabies Control Program

The Rabies Control Program investigates animal bites and human exposures to rabies, and processes licenses for dogs. Learn how to avoid dog bites, and teach children to be safe around dogs. Report animal bites or rabid animals.    

Shelter Operations

Shelter Operations houses and cares for stray, unwanted, or displaced animals. Every effort is made to place healthy, adoptable animals into new permanent, loving homes. We coordinate foster and volunteer programs, educate the community on pet overpopulation, and help people who have lost or found a pet.
