Before you adopt a pet...
Read this short paper before you make that important decision:

  • How to Adopt a Pet... 11/11 (acrobat pdf)
  • Pets must be spayed or neutered before they are allowed to go home. This is a State
    Law that is intended to reduce pet over-population.
  • Consider a micro-chip, the best way for your lost pet to be identified and returned to you.

Found and Adoptable Pets at the Moreno Valley Shelter

Our listings are on Pet Harbor. Pet Harbor is a not-for-profit Web site sponsored by HLP Chameleon and includes records from Los Angeles County Animal Control, Moreno Valley Animal Service, Pasadena Humane Society and San Diego County Department of Animal Control.

Don't Forget About that Dog License...

All dogs living in Moreno Valley that are four months of age and older must be licensed. You can obtain a license simply by having your dog vaccinated against rabies for a nominal fee at our Animal Shelter Clinic or you can go to your own veterinarian to obtain the rabies vaccination.

Make sure to bring in your dog's Rabies Certificate — you'll need it to get the dog license. You will be offered a discounted rate on your dog license if your dog is spayed or neutered.
