The animal care shelter offers a wide variety of potential pets to adopt. Most of our animals are strays or pets surrendered by owners who can no longer have them. The many benefits of adopting from the county animal care shelter include low-cost spay/neuter and vet checkup, the peace of mind of knowing your new pet has received its initial vaccinations against communicable diseases, and the satisfaction of having saved your pet's life. a shelter animal.
In addition to patrolling busy streets and back roads for lost, injured and abandoned animals, our animal control officers also conduct humane investigations when animal cruelty is suspected, provide emergency rescues during natural disasters, enforce all state laws and animal control facilities conduct license inspections.

Imperial County Animal Care and Control depends on the support and volunteers to provide the public service and animal care programs which are vital to maintaining a healthy community. ICACC is actively seeking committed volunteers with a love for animals, willing to volunteer a minimum of eight hours in a month.
Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age with parental consent and approval by the Public Health Director when under the age of 18. Each volunteer is a valued representative of ICACC, therefore guidelines must be followed in order to adhere to the maintenance and standards of the shelter
These animals need your support!
We are always in need of donations such as; blankets, towels, grooming equipment, dog and cat food, toys for the animals, treats for the dogs and so much more. We try to give all the animals that come through our door a chance. Any kind of donation is better than nothing at all, so please have it in your heart to give something to the animals. Next time you clean out your linen closet, donate to the shelter instead of throwing anything away. The animals here also need something soft and warm to curl up on until somebody gives them a forever home where they do not need to worry about anything anymore!
