Adoption Center - Small Animals

Scroll down to view smalls available for adoption.

We do our best to update these pages regularly, but we can't guarantee that every animal shown here will be available when you visit our shelter. Also there are often animals at the shelter that have not yet been added to this site--sorry for the delay. Come on in for a visit to see the newest animals.

Spay/Neuter Policy For Smalls

Due to the over population problem with small animals, Animal Care and Control spays and neuters all rabbits, rats and neuters all guinea pigs before they go to their new homes.

Volunteers Needed

Do you love small and exotic animals? Volunteer at Animal Care and Control! We need help socializing and exercising our small furry, feathered and scaly guests. If you're over 18 and ready for a volunteer commitment, please call (415) 554-9414 and reserve a space in an upcoming Volunteer Orientation.

Fosters Needed

Do you have room in your home, life and heart to foster a needy rabbit? Save a Bunny Rescue takes numerous rabbits from ACC. They are always in need of temporary homes for rabbits - please help if you can.

For the most current information on what small and exotic animals are available for adoption at Animal Care & Control, please visit Petfinder: http://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelter_id=CA326.



New animals are made available for adoption on a regular basis and it takes some time before they get posted here (7/23/2014). Come on in to the shelter to meet all the animals and remember that they are available for adoption!
