About Us

Dog PictureMission:  Building a community in which every adoptable pet finds a home.
Vision:  Enriching the lives of animals through a compassionate partnership with our community.

Welcome to the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care and Adoption Center.   As an open admission municipal Animal Center, we accept and care for nearly 5,800 animals a year.  Regardless of their health, behavior or adoptability, no animal in our City that needs our assistance is turned away.   Our mission and goal is to build a community in which every adoptable pet finds a home.  Last year, 84% of all the dogs and cats that we cared for were placed into new homes, with rescue partners or were reunited with their owners. 

Some of our responsibilities include bringing pets and people together through pet adoptions, animal retention programs, community outreach as well as developing enrichment programs to keep our homeless pets healthy and happy as they wait for their forever homes.  We are also charged with the responsibility of investigating cases of animal abuse and neglect and protecting the public’s health and safety through enforcement of animal laws, responding to calls of stray and aggressive animals and enforcing animal licensing and a rabies control program.  By working together, our mission will become a reality.  We hope you will visit us soon and think of us when you are ready to find your special new family member.
