Shelter Statistics

The statistical charts below show the data for dogs and cat that enter and leave the Tehama County Animal Care Center. It is important to note we are not a "no-kill" shelter. We are an open, municipal shelter, where we are required to accept any stray dog that is found within Tehama County. Although not required to accept stray cats, we work off a waiting list to take in as many cats as our shelter can handle. 

Due to wonderful community support, rescue groups, shelter partners, fosters and volunteers, we have made great strides in the past several years, achieving the highest save rates in our shelter's history. Although this progress is fantastic, we understand that this is not perfection. We strive everyday to be a better shelter and continue to improve our practices as the only Tehama County animal shelter.

Disposition Report

Our save rate is calculated by the number of live outcomes divided by the number of total outcomes (less animals who died in care). We strive to provide every animal in our care the time and support they need to find a loving home. However, because we take in some very vulnerable and sick animals—including newborn orphaned animals—some of the animals in our care do pass away.
