San Jose Animal Care Center
The City of San José created the Animal Care & Services division in 2001. This was in response to the Humane Society Silicon Valley's notification that they could no longer continue providing shelter and field service contracts for Santa Clara County cities. With the completion of the City of San José's new Animal Care Center in 2004, the City of San José itself is now providing shelter and field services for San José residents and for residents of Cupertino, Los Gatos, Milpitas and Saratoga.
The City of San José Animal Care and Services Division reserves the right to deny adoptions in certain circumstances for cause.
