After becoming a non-profit organization in 1996, the Friends of Turlock Animal Shelter has worked tirelessly to find good homes for unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats. Back in 2009, the shelter invested in a mobile pet adoption vehicle, which has enabled it to widen its scope when it comes to finding homes for furry residents. In addition to finding forever homes for dogs and cats, this shelter also puts a huge amount of time and effort into educating people about matters such as neutering and spaying, pet care, and how to treat animals. Volunteers and officials from the shelter attend a range of events and they do pet adoptions twice weekly in Turlock - on Saturdays and Sundays. While there is a charge for animal adoptions, money raised goes to a good cause as it is reinvested into animal care.
Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital is located in Turlock, California, and offers a huge range of services including dog adoption. In addition to providing a wide range of care and treatment services to dogs, cats, and other small animals, the hospital regularly runs campaigns for dogs who are eagerly awaiting their fur-ever homes with a loving family. You will find a range of dogs that are awaiting adoption on the website along with details of the dogs’ ages, temperaments, and needs. This makes it easy to find a four-legged friend that will fit in perfectly with your family and household. The hospital also offers pet care education services, which makes it easier for those who are new to pet ownership to learn about what they should and should not do.
Situated in Modesto, Planet Happy Paws is an animal charity and shelter that focuses on rescuing and finding new homes for animals in need. You can find and adopt dogs and other small pets from this non-profit organization, which is run by hard-working volunteers. All animals are looked after and treated with the utmost care while they are under the shelter's roof, which means that when you adopt a pet from here, you won’t have to worry about them having been kept cooped up in a cage. Although it was only established in 2015, this charity has come a long way and works hard to care for and re-home animals.
If you enjoy spending time outdoors with your four-legged friend, the Sunnyview Dog Park in Turlock is an excellent place to visit! Here, you will find two gated areas designed for dogs.

This is a great way for your pooch to meet other canines in safety while also getting plenty of fresh air and exercise.!
