Friends of Upland Animal Shelter and Animal Control Field Services Update:

Please note all off-site adoption events and group gatherings, such as volunteer orientations, are suspended until further notice. 

On-Going City of Upland Animal Control Services:

Upland Animal Services will continue to provide Animal Control Field Services and support.  Field Services calls will be limited to emergencies only. 

  • Animals picked up in the field will be immediately Returned To Owner (RTO) if an animal owner has been identified.
  • Animal Control Officers will be handling most calls from the Animal Shelter via telephone.

General Animal Guidance:

Although animals may not be at risk from the virus, we urge all pet owners to have a plan of action, in case of an emergency, for who will care for the animals.  As the virus spreads the number of animals in shelters may increase, therefore we are asking all animal owners to be prepared.

  • Have a location where your pet(s) can be cared for
  • Have easy access to your Pet(s) medical records
  • Maintain an appropriate Food, Medication, and Litter supply
  • Have Leashes, Crates, Bedding, etc.

The Community’s Support/How You Can Help:

Right now the shelter will need more help than ever.  The current environment is uncertain, and we’re unsure of what tomorrow will bring. So, we encourage you to please give an urgent gift today, and it will go directly to where it's needed most. Help us remain prepared for the unknown and, when the time comes, ensure our ability to swiftly and smoothly resume operations and help vulnerable animals who depend on us.  We are committed to providing care to homeless animals in our community.    The community can support this mission by keeping animals out of the Upland Animal Shelter, and by continuing to adopt, foster, volunteer, donate and help in other ways.
