Welcome to the City of Bakersfield Animal Care Center (CBACC). CBACC is located at 201 South Mt. Vernon Avenue and accepts animals from city residents and animals impounded by the City of Bakersfield Animal Control Officers. We are currently open by appointment only Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please call 661-832-7387 to make an appointment.
Stray animals and those being surrendered by owners are accepted during these hours, however, if you are surrendering your own pet, please call 661-832-7387, ext. 202 to make an appointment. You may also purchase licenses, redeem a lost pet and receive a myriad of resources during regular business hours.
We ask that you come down in person to meet our animals, so the right match can be made for you and your family. While we have all of our adoptable pets online, the human-animal bond is one that should be taken seriously when choosing a pet, and a picture will not always mean they are the right choice for your individual situation.
Effective immediately, the City of Bakersfield has declared a local emergency in response to the COVID-19 health crisis following Governor Gavin Newsom’s statewide stay-at-home order to all Californians.
