Salinas Animal Services is operated under the City’s Police Department. The other animal shelter on Hitchcock Road (Monterey County Animal Services) is operated by the Monterey County Health Department and services the unincorporated areas of Monterey County. The SPCA for Monterey County (on Highway 68) is a private, non-profit shelter which accepts owner-surrendered animals and strays from areas of the Peninsula and south county cities. While we all shelter animals, have adoption programs, and do work cooperatively, we operate separately and independently of each other.
