Mission: To promote the compassionate, respectful, and humane treatment of animals and people through partnership, sheltering, services, and education.
Town of Truckee Animal Services and the Humane Society of Truckee Tahoe have a unique, long-standing partnership. Our shared animal shelter facility, located at 10961 Stevens Lane in Truckee, maximizes efficiency and effectiveness by housing the public and private entities under the same roof. Working together, we are saving 100% of our community’s adoptable pets.
All dogs over 4 months of age in the Town of Truckee are required to have a license.
Lost and Found Animals
Our goal is to reunite people and their pets. If you have lost your animal or have found a stray animal, contact the Animal Services department immediately at 530-582-7830. You may be the only link to get a lost animal back to its rightful owner.
Coexisting with Wildlife
We’re lucky to live so close to wildlife. It is possible to share space and safely coexist with native species.
All counties in California are considered “rabies areas”. As such, every time an animal bites a person, no matter the circumstances, it must be reported to Animal Services.
Microchips are FREE for pets of residents of the Town of Truckee!
