Be sure to have your animal registered at the Fort Irwin VTF (Bldg 977) within ten days of bringing it to Fort Irwin. This is a post policy and is free. Failure to comply may subject the owner to a citation or an Article 92. DoD policy no longer allows mixes of or purebred Staffordshire Terriers, American Pit Bulls, Chows, Rottweilers, Dobermans, or wolf hybrids. Other requirements for pets living on post is that they be microchipped ($35) and be current with vaccinations.

Who We Are

Our shelter is a part of the Fort Irwin Veterinary Treatment Facility. Our mission is to provide temporary housing for abandoned or stray animals on Fort Irwin. We are unable to accept surrenders or animals found off post.

Adopting a friend

Please contact the shelter by phone, email, or by visiting between 2 and 4 p.m. on normal business days. The veterinary staff or volunteers will be happy to assist you in viewing the animals and choosing a pet that is right for you and your family. We ask all interested parties to fill out an application form. We hope to find the perfect friend for your family that will stay with you from now on.
