The Camarillo & Simi Valley Adoption Centers will be closed Monday, September 1 in observance of Labor Day. We will resume normal buiseness hours on Tuesday, September 2.  



When we open for adoption hours, if two or more people want to adopt the same animal, a lottery style drawing will be held to determine who gets first choice. We stop showing animals half an hour before closing.

Field Services

Our field officers are on duty 24 hours-per- day, 365 days-a-year.
