About Us

Who We Are

The Stockton Animal Shelter is the only municipal shelter for the City of Stockton and the majority of San Joaquin County. The shelter serves as a central location for dog licensing and City of Stockton Animal Control Operations.

All of our adoptions come with spay/neuter surgery, current vaccinations, microchip with registration, and an animal license within the City of Stockton or San Joaquin County. 


For more information about the services offered at our shelter, please refer to our website.
