The Animal Services Department has a long history in Contra Costa County.  In 1959 Animal Control (as it was called then), consisting of five employees, was re-assigned from the Sheriff's Office authority to the County Agriculture Department.  Animal Services became its own County department in 1985.  

Within a year, the Pinole shelter was built to provide West County residents convenient access to our services.  This smaller facility is located at 910 San Pablo Avenue and operates with a staff of four.

Our 75 employees and over 150 volunteers take great pride in these wonderful facilities, work very hard to care for the animals, and are eager to show you what we have to offer.  

We invite you to visit us soon.  Who knows, you may find your new best friend at the Animal Services Shelter!
