We're so excited that you have decided to bring a pet into your home.  By adopting from Animal Care of Davis County, you are not only giving a homeless or unwanted pet a second chance at a happy life, but you are also giving yourself and your family a chance to participate in one of earth's greatest powers: the human-animal bond.

Appointments are not currently required for adoptions, so drop by and find your new friend.

Vaccines and Microchipping

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Unfortunately, we are temporarily unable to administer the Rabies Vaccine.

Vaccines: We offer vaccines for most domestic animals that come into our shelter. Below you will find information about the different types of vaccines we offer for different animals:


Your canine companion should get regular vaccinations to protect him from common canine diseases. Our available dog vaccines are; Rabies, DH2PP (Parvo / Distemper Combo), and Bordatella (Kennel Cough).


Your feline friend needs some special love too! Feline vaccinations protect your feline against several common diseases. Our available cat vaccines are; Rabies, and FVRCP (rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia).

Schedule Vaccination Appointment


As part of our commitment to keeping pets together with their families we microchip every Dog, Cat and Rabbit that gets adopted out of our facility. A microchip implant is an identifying integrated circuit placed under the skin of an animal. The chip, about the size of a large grain of rice, uses passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology. When an animal is found and picked up most vets and all Animal Control agencies will first scan to see if there is a chip and try and reunify the pet with their owner.

Owner Requested Euthanasia


Making the decision to let your pet pass peacefully and compassionately from this life to the next is probably one of the hardest decisions to make. We recognize that this is a hard time for you, but we want you to be assured that we will take good care of you and your pet while you are here.

Unfortunately, our facility is not set up in a way that you can be present during the procedure. But please take peace in knowing that our trained and compassionate staff are taking good care of your pet in their final moments. You are always welcome to keep their personal effects, and if you wish we can have your animal prepared for home burial.

Schedule Euthanasia Appointment
** Please note that though we trust your decision to put down your beloved pet we will evaluate every animal that is brought to us for requested euthanasia. The final decision on whether an animal is irremediably sick lies with our trained veterinary and shelter staff. If our staff believes that your pet's ailments can be remedied, they can offer suggestions and you may choose to follow up with your veterinarian.


We understand that sometimes it is necessary to rehome your pet to give it a second chance. Those decisions should not be taken lightly. Please follow the link below to see how Animal Care of Davis County can support you in this process.
