COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

What shelter-in-place means for animal shelters.

Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center will be open from 10am – 4pm by appointment only. To schedule an appointment to adopt an animal, please email .

We will continue to provide the following services to our community:

  • The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center’s Pet Food Assistance Program feeds 100’s of dogs and cats each month in coordination with different partner organizations throughout the community.  Our Pet Food Assistance Program is also available to anyone who is experiencing financial hardship and might need a little help providing food for their beloved pet(s). We coordinate individual pet food packaging and delivery to those in need and in these times that includes pet owners who are struggling with the loss of employment due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Food can be picked up from the Center Thursday – Saturday from 10am – 1pm.
  • Owner relinquishments of puppies and kittens under 8 weeks of age by appointment only.  To schedule an appointment please fill out the form on our website
  • Fostering animals is especially critical right now, since we anticipate fewer people will be coming in to adopt pets amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. Thanks to our incredible volunteers, we do not currently need fosters, but that may change in the coming days. If you would like to help us be prepared for that eventuality, you can sign up here.


Due to COVID-19, our vaccine clinic is closed until further notice.

Low Cost Vaccination Clinic at the Pet Adoption Center

Being a responsible pet owner can be difficult in these tough economic times. However, it is still important that your pet receive yearly vaccinations to keep them safe from various diseases.  Did you know that California state law requires that dogs over the age of four months must have a current rabies vaccine? 

The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center recognizes the need for resources to help the public continue to be responsible pet owners. That is why we started offering our weekly Low Cost Vaccination/Microchip Clinics, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am every Saturday. A licensed veterinarian and qualified personnel are available to administer vaccinations at a reduced cost.

We pride ourselves on fast and friendly service.  The goal of our Vaccination Clinic is to help you keep your pet happy and healthy!
