With the recent rains contributing to overcrowding at the Martinez and Pinole shelters, Contra Costa Animal Services (CCAS) is offering free adoptions for all animals from Wednesday through Sunday.

The free adoption special includes all fees associated with adopting an animal, including for the adoption, the spay/neuter procedure, micro-chipping and vaccination.

“Due to increased amount of stray animals coming into the County’s care, some as a result of the inclement weather over the weekend, CCAS is seeking to find homes for the hundreds of animals currently in our shelters,” the agency said in a statement.

To view animals available for adoption at our Martinez and Pinole shelters, please visit www.ccasd.org. The Martinez Adoption Center is located at 4800 Imhoff Place, while the Pinole Adoption Center is located at 910 San Pablo Ave.

Both shelters are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, and until 7 p.m. on Wednesdays. Sunday adoptions are at the Martinez shelter only, from noon to 3 p.m.
