Dover is Your Calaveras County Animal Services Pet of the Week!

San Andreas, CA… Meet Dover, a male Husky mix estimated to be between 4 and 5 years old. An affectionate and gentle dog, Dover has all the qualities of an emotional support or therapy dog. He loves to snuggle and is a favorite among volunteers for giving the best hugs. He is relaxed and quiet in his kennel and may be housebroken since he keeps it clean. Dover is also great with other dogs, both male and female, though a meet ‘n’ greet is required should you have another at home.

As with all dogs available for adoption at the Calaveras Animal Shelter, Dover is microchipped and up to date on his routine vaccinations. Already neutered, he can go home with you today!

Come visit Dover, impound no. AO53004, along with other dogs and cats awaiting their forever homes 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 Dover’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.

Volunteers are very much needed as well. Whether you can give a little time or a lot, we would value your help caring for shelter animals or supporting the office. No experience necessary; we will provide training and match you to your interests. Please call 754-6509 for more information.

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.
