Bindi is Your Calaveras Pet of the Week!

San Andreas, CA… Meet Bindi, a lab/Pit Bull mix estimated to be about 4 years of age. We don’t know a lot about this sweet girl’s history as she was found abandoned. She has adapted well meeting staff and volunteers, yet is timid in her new surroundings. No surprise for a dog whose world has likely been turned upside down. When first arriving at the shelter, Bindi would plop down in the grass and refuse to adventure further. We have gained her trust gradually with her favorite activities, petting and brushing. Bindi also very much enjoys her baths. With gentle coaxing, she is beginning to be comfortable in going out to the walking trail and exploring what else exists beyond her kennel walls.

As with all dogs available for adoption at the Calaveras Animal Shelter, Bindi is micro-chipped and up-to-date on her routine vaccinations. She will need an owner or family who will be patient as she adjusts to a new environment. Should you have another dog at home, a meet ‘n’ greet will be necessary. We also believe Bindi is housebroken since she keeps her kennel clean. Bindi will need to be spayed before going home with you.

Come visit Bindi, impound no. AO527, along with other dogs and cats awaiting adoption at Calaveras County Animal Services, 901 Jeff Tuttle Drive, San Andreas (in government center by the new jail). Animal Services is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday (closed for lunch from 1-2 p.m.). For more information about this dog, please email or, or call Animal Services directly at 754-6509. Please refer to Bindi’s impound number when making inquiries. Adoptable animals may also be viewed on the web at and on the Calaveras County Animal Services Facebook page.

Animal Services now has a Fee Flexibility Program!

When the dog or cat population at the shelter is at 80% or above capacity, the total adoption fee will be 50% off––reduced to $40 for dogs and $30 for cats. The adoption fee for cats who arrive at the shelter already altered will be $10. With the 55-5-5 Program, any time an adopter is 55 or older and adopts any pet over 5 years old, the adoption fee is $5.
