Antioch Animal Services Offering Amnesty Weekend, Free Adoptions


The Antioch Animal Services announced they will be hosting an amnesty weekend along with free adoptions. The move comes after an abundance of new animals entered the shelter after the July 4 holiday.

According to Lieutenant. Tarra Mendes, there will be no impound fees for lost pets (July 8). Instead, the only requirement is they must leave with a microchip and license. No additional fines or fees (excludes on-going case related animals). Please come and ID your pet.

Animal Services also announced they will host free adoptions due to being at the capacity of large dogs and have no kennel space available–requires purchase of microchip & license.

They are also asking local rescues to please come pull as many dogs as possible.

Antioch Animal Services is located at 300 “L” Street, Antioch – Tel (925) 779-6989
