Contra Costa Animal Services (CCAS) is offering free adoptions for all animals in June in an effort to clear kennel space.

CCAS is also seeking qualified foster homes, specifically those that can accommodate large dog breeds, to help alleviate the current shelter population. CCAS currently has over 200 pets seeking permanent or temporary homes. 

“Like most shelters, we’re experiencing a noticeable increase of animals coming into our facility and we’re close to reaching our capacity,” says Ben Winkleblack, CCAS director. “With more than 220 dogs and cats in the shelter and an average daily intake of nearly 20 animals each day, we’re asking for the community’s help in getting as many pets out of the shelter as we possibly can through adoption and foster.” 

Interested adopters and fosters can view CCAS’s available pets at, or meet them at the CCAS adoption center in Martinez. A $25 licensing fee may apply for pet adoptions.

The CCAS Adoption Center is located at 4800 Imhoff Pl. in Martinez. Hours are from Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
