Animal Services Section is responsible
for the operation of the Yolo County
Animal Services shelter and animal control
services to the cities, unincorporated
areas of the county, and the
property of the University of
California at Davis. The program
is supported primarily through
contracts for service with the
cities, generous donations from
citizens and businesses, and
dog licensing fees.
Yolo County Animal Services is now
also responsible for all rabies
control enforcement in Yolo County,
working in conjunction with the
and patrol staff focus on the
abandoned, stranded or cruelly
victimized animals in Yolo County.
Shelter for these animals makes
the community safer and provides
a loving home for animals that
might otherwise have been euthanized.
The State of California regulates
Food and Agriculture codes. These
codes require extended holding
periods for stray, feral, and
relinquished pets. The law allows
more time for animal adoption
and the results are subsequently
overcrowding at shelters.
You can help reduce animal overpopulation
by spaying or neutering your pets.
All animals adopted from shelters
must be spayed or neutered. A law
in effect since January 1, 2000,
requires an owner whose animals
are impounded to pay fines and
additional fees, if those animals
are not spayed or neutered.
help combat the shelter overcrowding
problem, Animal Services built
the T.S. and K.D. Glide Annex
which is used to house felines
as well as other small animals
through a generous donation from
the Glide Foundation. The annex
includes a medical equipment
area. The Glide Foundation has
provided the Yolo County Animal
Shelter financial support in
the form of donations since 1997.
