Every day law enforcement and firefighters risk their lives to protect all that we hold dear. Because of their actions the families we love, the community we live in, and the businesses our livelihood depends on, all breathe a bit easier, knowing that these men and women stand ready to do what is necessary to safeguard us.

P.E.T.S. (Providing Essentials for Tehama Shelter) is extremely grateful to these guardians of life and property and we would like to say “THANK YOU” to all the dedicated personnel involved. As P.E.T.S. way of saying “Thank You”, starting October 1, 2015, and ending June 30, 2016, the Spay/Neuter and Rabies fees of ANY animal adopted at the Tehama County Animal Care Center by fire or law enforcement personnel working in Tehama County, including volunteer staff, will be paid by P.E.T.S.

We feel that the courageous men and women who serve our county deserve our admiration, support, and gratitude for the often thankless jobs that they do. It is our hope that by reducing the adoption fees, that they and their families will find a furry friend to bring a bit more joy into their lives. Just as these unsung heroes help us, we hope we can do the same for them.

To qualify for this program, the adopter must be a member of any Tehama County Fire Department or CAL FIRE Unit located in Tehama County, or a member of any Police Department, Sheriff’s Department, or CHP unit that is located within Tehama County. A photo ID and verification must be provided to qualify.

The Tehama County Animal Care Center is located at 1830 Walnut Street in Red Bluff. Care Center adoption hours are 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, excluding holidays.

If you would like more information regarding this program, please call P.E.T.S. at 530-527-8702 or email us at:

Thank you for being there for us and others.

With gratitude, the Board members of P.E.T.S.:
Sharron, Ronnie, Nellie, Stephen, Everett, Clarissa and Samantha
