San Jose Animal SheltersIf you are planning on adopting a dog from one of the San Jose Animal Shelters, you deserve to be congratulated. Once you arrive at the shelter, you’ll know you’ve come to the right place as there are hundreds of wonderful rescue dogs ready to be adopted and go home with you, their new owner. The addresses for the San Jose Animal Shelters is listed below.

When people decide to get a dog they usually will get one from one of the following places: 1) a friend who has a puppy that needs a home, 2) a local breeder, 3) a local pet store or 4) a local rescue or shelter. We believe the best place to get a new dog is from one of the San Jose Animal Shelters. It’s a more humane place to get a dog. Also, you’ll have a large inventory of dogs to choose from and if you get a dog from the San Jose Animal Shelter you’re freeing up space for another rescue. One thing you’ll like is how easy it is to find the perfect match for you and your family.

San Jose Animal Shelter
2750 Monterey Rd.
San Jose, CA 95111

The City of San José created the Animal Care & Services division in 2001. This was in response to the Humane Society Silicon Valley’s notification that they could no longer continue providing shelter and field service contracts for Santa Clara County cities. With the completion of the City of San José’s new Animal Care Center in 2004, the City of San José itself is now providing shelter and field services for San José residents and for residents of Cupertino, Los Gatos, Milpitas and Saratoga.

This branch of the ACS is sometimes referred to as Animal Control.  This unit is comprised of Dispatchers and Animal Service Officers.  Our Animal Dispatchers answer thousands of calls each year from people reporting or needing help with stray, injured, lost, dead, nuisance or dangerous animals.  They then prioritize the calls and “dispatch” our Animal Service Officers (ASOs) to the location where they do their best to resolve the various situations that occur each day.

San Jose Animal Shelters

San Jose Animal Shelters are an amazing place to pick out a lifelong family companion. They are sure to have your next future dog!

Animal SheltersAfter choosing a dog at the San Jose Animal Shelter, we suggest you get him trained as soon as possible. We’ve created a guide for dog training in San Jose that will be helpful to you. Many new dog owners enroll their new best friend in a group training class usually held at a local park or pet store. Other owners hire a professional dog trainer and have him train their dog. This can be an expensive as most trainers charge several hundred dollars or more to train a dog. We recommend that you consider training the dog yourself, using our affordable, easy-to-use, online videos for guidance. When you train your dog yourself you begin to build a lifelong bond with your new pet. And, here’s the thing … regardless of who trains the dog at the beginning, you’ll end up training him in the long run anyway as he lives with you throughout his life. Why not start out doing the training yourself.

Training Your Dog At Home

Shelter Dog TrainingOne of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself and your new friend is train your dog at home. It’ll cost you less, be more interesting and can be a lot of fun for both of you. The best part is that our videos show you how to train your dog using only positive methods and motivation rather than force and intimidation.

Our Inside Out Basic Obedience Series feature nationally-recognized dog trainer, Jason Rae, and cover the how-to in dog training along with the psychology of working with dogs. Another must-see series is Jason’s Solving Dog Behavior Problems Series, in which he shows owners how they can solve 20 of the most common dog behavior problems themselves, again only using positive methods and without hurting the dog in any way
Here’s our recommendations … get your dog from the San Jose Animal Shelter and train him yourself using our online videos for guidance. You and your dog will be pleased with your decision.
