“Let’s go for a walk!”

My name is Julie and I recently moved to LA from NYC! I have a lifetime of experience caring for dogs. When I first came to CA, I dog sat my way through the state which was a wonderful way to learn different areas and get to meet some great furry friends in the process! Now that I’m settled in LA, I would love to continue taking care of pups. I was a volunteer and foster mom for It’s Ruff Without a Roof, and cared for many rescues in my home. I love to explore, hike, travel, and teach yoga.

Dog Boarding in Salinas

The Salinas Animal Services, also known as (SAS), is a division of the Police Department. They provide animal control services, animal shelter and licensing for the City of Salinas, CA. Their vision is to find every shelter animal a permanent home and to endorse a community of responsible pet owners. Their mission is to provide a compassionate, professional and superior service to all the animals and to their community.

The Salinas Animal Services provides vouchers for pets to get spayed and neutered, giving away $50 vouchers for male pets and $75 vouchers for female pets. These vouchers are valid at any local Veterinary clinic. Just bring in your photo id (drivers license) and a utility power bill for proof of address.

The vouchers will be issued to those pets that are up to date on their vaccinations, and the dogs must be currently licensed. The rules and regulations of the dog licensing act presume that dogs at the age of four months or over should have a rabies vaccination to be able to get a license. The first vaccination will be good for a whole year and subsequent vaccines will be good for 3 years. 

The Salinas Animal Services is your one stop to pick up and adopt a loving pet cat or dog. Cats have a $50 price tag and dogs have a $75 price tag. All adoptions include a spay and neuter, vaccinations, microchip and FVCRVP.

There are lots on offer, with a wide selection of subs to tempt everyone's tastes. Your dog must be either on a leash or tied up as table service is not on offer here.
