FB 20. Chico Animal Shelter_Animal Shelter of the Week


The Chico Animal Shelter started their own adoption program where they choose to save all the lives of animals that come in, even those with medical or behavioral issues. Their adoption and medical programs are funded solely through donations and not out of the city’s funds. These programs include spay/neuter and overall care for animals that come into the shelter. Of all the animals that passed through their care, they had a 78.67% live release rate, 9.73% euthanized (5.58% were owner requests), and 8.83% were carried over (2.77% died).
