Update regarding Animal Shelter video posted to social media on 2/19: The City is committed to the humane care of all the animals at the shelter. Upon learning of the video, management from City Hall went to the shelter to ensure that staff is consistently using proper care procedures. Due to the serious nature of the video, a special public meeting was held on Monday, February 23, 2015 to allow members of the public to share their feelings about the incident with the City Council and fellow community members. The owner of the dog also attended the meeting to share her feelings about what happened. Regarding the behavior in the video, there is an open investigation into staff conduct, which is being handled by an outside, independent firm. The City will do everything in its power to ensure a timely investigation. Based on the findings of this investigation, appropriate action will be taken. With respect to the use of volunteers at the shelter, we currently have 10 people that volunteer regularly at the shelter. The Hesperia Animal Shelter Facebook site is administered by the City Manager’s Office, not shelter staff. Those wishing to contact us may do so at .

If you are looking for a new pet, but don't see the type of animal that you are looking for, or wish to adopt a specific breed, please contact the Remember, adopting a pets saves a life.Of course, not all feel this way, and even many who do will not admit publicly to it in fear of losing the ability as rescues to pull adoptable pets from the shelters. The Hesperia shelter has only a 30% success rate at adopting out adoptable pets, meaning 7 out of 10 that go into the shelter leave in a dumpster after being euthanized. Euthanization is the most human way to reduce the number of animals in shelters, if all were kept there would be crowding causing an increase of emotional distress on the animals and a severe financial strain on the shelters. Total “no kill” status most likely will never be achieved, but with responsible pet owners spaying, neutering and keeping their pets safely in their homes or yards the numbers can decrease.
