Our Featured Pet...


Adoptions only occur once/year in April, usually the last Sunday in April. This year the adoption event will be held on Sunday April 30 from 10am-2 pm. All animals are altered, vaccinated and microchipped. Dogs have initial obedience and will respond to on-leash commands. Dogs are $150 and cats are $50. Animals will go to their new homes on May 5th or on the day of adoption if it is past the pick up date. If you are seeking a canine companion for an existing dog, please bring your dog with you so we can see if they will be a match. Please call for more information or to schedule an appointment to meet the animals. .

Who We Are

Cosumnes River College trains veterinary technicians. The animals posted here on our website assisted in the training of this year's veterinary technology students. They were all rescued from shelters and placed into the program. The animals were vaccinated by the VT students, had blood collected for lab work and to check for diseases such as heartworm or feline leukemia virus and are negative for any such diseases. They were neutered by the program director who is a licensed veterinarian and oversees the care of all of the animals. The students learned how to prepare the animals for surgery, to monitor anesthesia during the neuter surgeries,and how to monitor their post-operative care. Our dogs have been given initial obedience training and all animals are microchipped. Because we have had the animals for 9 months, we can give you more information on their health care and their personalities.
