The CCSPCA is contracted with Fresno City to conduct animal control services and rabies control enforcement. The CCSPCA accepts stray dogs, cats, and other animals found within the City of Fresno limits, only.
We’re here to support you through the tough decisions you make throughout your animal’s life. We understand the difficult decision and emotional process that you may encounter to say “goodbye” to your loved one.
In the City of Fresno, all dogs over the age of 4 months must be licensed. A dog license is valid from the date of the rabies vaccine for a period of 12 months. You may obtain 3-year licenses in advance. For your convenience, you may license your dog by visiting our Adoption Center without an appointment.
The CCSPCA Education Department is the Animal Center’s direct educational outlet to the community, both on and off CCSPCA property. This department focuses on the importance of spay and neuter with an emphasis on the impact of pet overpopulation in the Central Valley.
