Welcome to Animal Care Services and the Animal Shelter

The City of Berkeley’s Animal Care Services (BACS) is a division of the Office of the City Manager.  We provide a wide range of services to our cities’ residents and their pets.We provide field services, seven days a week, to the cities of Berkeley and Albany.  These services include the enforcement of city ordinances related to animals, removal of killed or injured wildlife, impoundment of stray pets, and investigation of animal-related neglect, cruelty, nuisance and bite cases.  At our shelter, we house domestic animals from the cities of Berkeley, Albany, Emeryville, and Piedmont.  We provide not only a safe haven for these homeless pets, but also adoption services, advice on animal-related topics, lost and found pet reports, and free or low-cost spay/neuter vouchers for Berkeley residents’ dogs and cats.  

 The Animal Shelter is located at 1 Bolivar Drive, at the West end of Addison and the North end of Aquatic Park. .  We are open to the public seven days a week, except City of Berkeley holidays.  Our hours are: Wednesday 10-7, Sunday 11-3, and all other days 10-4.
