The Escalon Animal Shelter serves the city of Escalon, CA, an agricultural community situated north of Modesto and southeast of Stockton. We opened in August, 2006, and our facility, though small, processes large numbers of dogs and cats within the Escalon city limits. We have a good success rate at re-uniting pets with their families, and a good record on adoptions and contact with rescue groups.
~ Adopting a friend ~
Shelter volunteers and staff try to advise prospective adoptive families as to an animal's temperament, needs, life expectancy, and any other pertinent facts. We charge a nominal fee for our adoptions: $50.00 for a dog and $30.00 for a cat.
Avid Microchips are mandatory for all dog adoptions and are optional for cats if the new owners request them. We recommend microchipping all animals as it will aid in finding your pet if it ever gets lost or stolen. We charge a $25 fee, which includes the registration of the chip. We will chip any public animal at the same cost with proof of ownership at the shelter.
If the animal has not yet been spayed or neutered, Escalon Small Animal Clinic must alter the animal before the adoption can proceed.
The Escalon Shelter Staff will transport the animal to the vet on surgery day, and the adoptive family will pick up their new pet from the vet's once the procedure has been completed.
The City of Escalon has made arrangements with the Escalon Small Animal Clinic to handle our spay/neuter needs as follows ---
Neuter $40 .
These fees are paid by the new adoptive family. The vet also offers vaccines that are necessary for the continued good health of the new pet. These are administered at the time of surgery at a reduced price.
