Plenty of animals are available at the county animal shelter.

BLYTHE, Calif. - Riverside County Department of Animal Services features plenty of choices of dogs available for adoption. Stop in and visit the Blythe Animal Shelter located at 245 S. Carlton (behind ACE Hardware) from Monday-Friday, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The Shelter is now offering a summer special on adoptions. Cats are two for one for $15 and dogs are $40.

"Chester", is a male shorthair about four months old. "Yoda", is a female Chihuahua about nine weeks old. "Bonita", is a female Collie/Labrador mix about five months old.

For both cats and dogs the license fee is not included in the adoption price. There are many dogs that are in need of homes. Some are possibly people's pets, so if you are missing your pet please stop in at the shelter to check the animals out.

For current pet owners, it is encouraged to have your pet installed with a microchip. Riverside County Animal Shelter offers micro-chipping for $20.

The procedure will help prevent your pet from being separated from you for an extended period of time.

If picked up, Blythe Animal Control can scan your pet and reunite you without being taken to the shelter and incurring fees. Remember your pet is your family.

Cat vaccinations and other vaccinations are also available.

Now the shelter offers dog toys for a donation that goes toward the enrichment of the animals at the local shelter.

Also, the shelter is seeking volunteers to help out at the new facility.

Volunteers will be assigned to help with the animals by walking the dogs, brushing and petting the cats, grooming the dogs, greeting customers, cleaning kennels and more. Volunteer applications are available online at or in person at the Blythe Animal Shelter.

For more information on fees, the featured animals, other animals that are available, or rabies clinic call (760) 921-7857 or 760-922-6111.
