The animal shelter is a great place to find a new friend for you, your child, or even another pet. The fees are fairly inexpensive and they include neutering/spaying, and shots. They have dogs, cats, and small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs, etc depending). Many kittens are going to be coming up for adoption and they need more foster homes for mother cats and their litters. There is even a voucher program to help pay for the cost of spaying your pet if you live inside the Salinas city limits. Everyone on the staff is very nice and will do anything they can to help. If your dog doesn't get along with one of the animals you are interested in, they take the time to help you find one it loves. The adoptable cats always wanted to be loved. You can even volunteer at the shelter if you are 18 or over. Check the website out to see which animals are up for adoption!
