Current Operations

Please contact our staff by calling 707-565-7100 or sending an email to to request an appointment. Please review our adoption page for current protocols.

Due to limited staff and high call volumes, there may be extended wait times when calling. While customer relations staff may be able to service transactions via phone, we encourage you to use our online resources for all other information or send an email to our general inbox.

Our general inbox email address is theanimalshelter@sonoma-county.org.

Please check individual pages for specific updates by using the menu on the left if you are on a computer. If you are navigating our website using a smart phone, the menu can be found by clicking the button (square with three horizontal lines) on the right side next to the magnifying glass. In either case, most information will be found under Services and Information.
