El Dorado County Animal Services would like to wish everyone happy holidays! The county’s animal shelters in both Diamond Springs and South Lake Tahoe will be closed on Saturday, December 24 through Monday, December 26 in observance of the upcoming holidays. Impound holding periods will be extended for non-business days. Animal Services Officers will periodically check any messages left on the Animal Services main phone lines during the closures.
Field Services enforces state statutes and county ordinances regulating animal care and welfare, investigates citizens' complaints of animal neglect or nuisance, and responds to reports of loose and injured animals. Animal Services also inspects and licenses animal establishments and kennels.Non-Emergency Complaint Forms /
The Rabies Control Program investigates animal bites and human exposures to rabies, and processes
licenses for dogs. Learn how to avoid dog bites, and teach children to be safe around dogs. Report animal bites or rabid animals.
Shelter Operations houses and cares for stray, unwanted, or displaced animals. Every effort is made to place healthy,
adoptable animals into new permanent, loving homes. We coordinate foster and
volunteer programs, educate the community on pet overpopulation, and help people who have
found a pet.
