NOTICE :: Due to various reasons, we are in the process of moving websites. We apologize for our site not being up to date as of late but with the new web host we plan to use, it will be a lot easier for everyone at the shelter to be able to update it more often instead of using the complicated coding that we do now. The new site will have a lot more information for the public and with its easy web editing tools, we will be able to upload pictures and information quite a lot easier. Our new website is still being worked on and we hope to have everything on it that we want on it and have it up and running no later than the end of July ( Fingers crossed!! X ) and when it is ready for the public, we will announce it on our facebook page. We apologize for any inconvenience.

To see our available dogs and cats, please visit either our facebook page or our petfinders page.

The Trinity County Animal Shelter is a no-kill shelter committed to serving the public in the care and well being of animals throughout Trinity County. The Animal Control Officer is the Field Officer and Shelter Supervisor and is assisted by one shelter attendant and volunteers. The shelter costs and employment are funded though the Trinity County Sheriff's Department.

The Shelter offers such diverse services as finding homes for adoptable animals, providing for stray animals, offering assistance to owners and people who find lost animals. We also assist animal owners in providing shelter for their pets and livestock during major emergencies such as evacuations during fires.

Trinity Animal Shelter's main advocate is the Trinity Animal Shelter Auxiliary and we are very grateful for all of their donations and assistance.
