Open During Construction

On February 6th, the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care and Adoption Center will be starting a construction project, with the overall goal of making improvements to the Center’s aging building and giving the animals and people a better experience.  We anticipate construction will last from February to the end of April.  The scope of the project includes new stainless steel kennels, epoxy flooring, new paint, sound acoustical panels and a lobby refresh with new energy efficient lighting.    

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.  If you have additional questions, please contact our Director at

Are you going to be closed to the public?

No.  The Animal Center will be open to the public and for all normal services.  However, customers will need to check in at the mobile RC2Go unit located in the Animal Center parking lot.  Please note, during construction the Animal Center will be closing 30 minutes early (6:30pm) to provide additional attention to the animals in the evening hours. 

Monday: Closed

Tuesday - Friday: 11 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.  Adoptions stop an hour before closing.

Saturday & Sunday: 10 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.  Adoptions stop an hour before closing.

Additionally, the Animal Center hours may slightly change to accommodate inclement weather or construction needs.  Additional changes will posted on social media and our website.  However, our Field Service staff is available 24 hours a day for emergencies.

Where will the animal be housed?

All animals are being housed onsite in temporary facilities and staff will be available to escort you to look for lost pets.  Additionally, there are many pets available for adoption.  The Animal Center also has shelter partners, boarding facilities and rescue partners on standby to ensure all of our pets are receiving the care they need.
