The predominant activity of Kern County Animal Services is responding to the reports of stray and abandoned animals. Officers are in the field Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. responding to these reports. Officers will also respond to priority and emergency calls after hours and on Saturdays and Sundays. Residents are asked to contact the Sheriff's Department non-emergency line for these calls.
When an officer locates stray animals, every attempt is made to return the animals to the owner. When animals do not have any identification, or the owner can't be reached, the animals are impounded and taken to the shelter.
KCAS manages two animal shelters. The largest shelter is located at 3951 Fruitvale Avenue in Bakersfield. The other shelter is located at 923 Poole Street, at the Mojave Airport, in Mojave. Both shelters are able to house and care for dogs and cats.
