Empty the Shelters Adoption Event July 2024


BISSELL Pet Foundation, a national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending pet homelessness, is prompting a national call for adoption once again this summer with its “Empty the Shelters” reduced-fee adoption event from July 8 - 31.   Tulare County Animal Services will participate along with more than 390 shelters in 44 states. To help deserving shelter pets find loving homes, BISSELL Pet Foundation sponsors reduced adoption fees of $50 or less per cat or dog during each nationwide event.

Tulare County Animal Services will be reducing their dog and cat adoption fees for animals adopted at our shelter.

All dog adoptions will be only $20
      (An $8 dog licensing fee applies to all residents who live in the unincorporated areas of Tulare County).

All cat adoptions will be only $40-$50

Please check under our "Available Pets" for the dogs and cats we have available for adoption.  If a cat or kitten is located at PetSmart in Visalia or in a foster home, the staff notes under the animal information will show this.

We are open for adoptions Monday - Saturday from 10 am - 4 pm.  Appointments are encouraged but are not required.  If you have any questions please call us at (559) 636-4050 x 0.
