Animal Services offering $5 adoptions Friday and Saturday


Can you offer holiday hope to homeless pets?

Contra Costa Animal Services (CCAS) will offer $5 adoptions for all animals on Friday, Dec. 13 and Saturday, Dec. 14, as part of the Bissell Pet Foundation’s “Holiday Hope” adoption campaign.

As part of the campaign, CCAS is joining 110 shelters in 22 states offering reduced fee adoptions to adopt as many pets possible this weekend. 

The $5 adoption special includes most fees associated with adopting an animal, including: adoption fees, spay/neuter, micro-chipping and vaccination (avg. cost of adoption is between $104-$284). However, new adopters will be required to license their animal.

“To permanently end the homeless pet problem, everyone across the country needs to understand that there are beautiful, worthy animals in shelters who should be the first choice when bringing a pet into your home,” said Cathy Bissell, Founder of the Bissell Pet Foundation. “You will get the most loving pet who will literally change your life because it’s so grateful to be loved. I want every person to know they can be part of the solution if they adopt a shelter pet.”

Interested adopters should visit CCAS’ Martinez and Pinole adoption centers to meet the animals and adopt their new family member. To view available pets online, please visit

CCAS Adoption Centers are located in Martinez at 4800 Imhoff Place, and in Pinole at 910 San Pablo Ave. in Pinole.
