  • 1. Caring people in a tough job

    by: twofatcats

    I have volunteered for the Salinas shelter for a long time now. I have seen first hand how they try to save as many animals as possible by returning to owner, adoption, contacting other rescue groups to take animals, use of internet sources to showcase the animals. I have observed that they are polite even when busy and hassled. It is a tough job because not only do you deal with animal lovers but also with the people who neglect and mistreat animals. I ahve adopted 3 animals from Salinas shelter and they have all been great pets. We do need a makeover though!!!


    The staff cares about their charges


    It is a city shelter with limited resources

    I adopted my dachshund, Kirby, from Salinas Animal Services in November 2007. From the time I walked in the door the staff and volunteers were very helpful. The poor guy came with some baggage (separation anxiety and a bandaged tail from chewing on it so much), but the staff was very honest and upfront about this issue. We were given all the time we needed to allow Kirby to get acquainted with Daisy Mae, our doxie princess. Now, three months later, Kirby is happy, healthy, and spoiled rotten! \r\nI was so moved by the things I saw when I adopted Kirby that I now volunteer on Fridays at the shelter. Chances are you'll see me folding clothes, walking dogs, or washing dishes. Everyone associated with Salinas Animal Services bends over backwards to see that every animal that comes through the doors finds a loving forever home. Stop by - you'll be glad you did!


    Awesome Staff, Adorable Animals

    The dedicated staff at Salinas Animal Services tirelessly works to get as many animals into loving homes as possible on a daily basis. If you haven't been out there, it's worth the trip. They're the second shelter on Hitchcock Road and take in animals just from the City of Salinas.\n\nEver see a 23 lb. cat? Ask for Ansel Catums, the shelter's well known house cat. You have to see him to believe him! And his trouble-seeking side-kick Cassanova is pretty cute too! \n\nThe shelter is open Tuesday - Saturday from 12-5pm, so stop in and say hi!


    We're fantabulous about the furry!


    Our building may blow away!
