Featured Projects

One of the Biggest Projects in Riverside County Animal Services history has been completed.

Western Riverside County ShelterThe 65,000-squarefoot Northwestern Riverside County/City Animal Shelter is the largest animal shelter in the Inland Empire and one of the largest in Southern California.

The new location, on the northeast corner of Van Buren Boulevard and Clay Street used to be a county transportation department storage and work yard.

“This shelter will really make an outstanding statement at how committed this county is to homeless animals and to the many strays that come through our doors,” W Riverside County ShelterDirector Robert Miller said. “This is not our building,” Miller said. “This is the community’s shelter. We want them to feel that this shelter is a valuable addition. We want community groups to feel welcome to use the large conference room or center courtyard for their functions. They will see how much the county and city of Riverside is committed to caring for homeless animals.”

The shelter features include climate-control kennels, orthopedic surgery rooms, automatic water bowls for dogs and “life rooms” for dogs or cats that will mirror the average living room. There is also space dedicated to livestock and a protected-custody ward for abused or neglected animals.

The new shelter has the ability to house more animals with fewer dogs placed in each kennel run and fewer felines placed together in cat condominiums. The city of Riverside is a major partner in the shelter. Earlier this year, the Riverside City Council approved a five-year extension with the county for its animal control/animal services contract.
