Stray Animal Pickup / Transport

If you have found a stray animal and need for Animal Care and Services to pick it up you can call us at (408) 794-7297. An ACS officer will pick it up from your residence as soon as they can at no charge.

Because our ACS Officers are often busy responding to emergency calls, it may be faster and easier to transport the animal yourself, if it is safe to do so, to the San José Animal Care Center.

If you choose to do so, the ACS would like to thank you for temporarily harboring a stray animal. Many animals roaming free are frightened and are likely to run into traffic in their confused state. You can be satisfied knowing you are helping the animal and the community stay safe.

Stray & Feral Cats

If you have found a stray cat or kitten or are troubled by stray or feral cats in your yard, see additional information about this topic.
