Information On Reopening Status 

The City of Rancho Cucamonga’s Animal Center is continuing to provide services by appointment only. Like many cities, we have been deeply impacted financially by the pandemic and resulting shutdown of businesses and economic activity. With limited resources, our priority is to provide the highest quality of care for the animals and find them homes while continuing to serve our community the best way we can. The Field Services department is available for animal related emergencies in Rancho Cucamonga 24 hours a day.
