Until the Week of Giving
Because of generous donations from the public, the Chico Animal Shelter is able to provide medical care for all the animals that come through our doors. This can include anything from treating a minor cold to surgery for broken bones. We also have a "fospice" program for animals that are not adoptable due to medical conditions but have a good quality of life, so they can live out their lives in loving homes. The medical fund also helps pay for spay/neuters for all animals before they are adopted, and for community cats. Our medical fund is completely separate from the operating funds, ensuring that 100% of the donations are used for care of the animals at the shelter and in foster care.
Courteously and compassionately promote the health, safety, and welfare of citizens and animals through regulation, protection and education.
