Friday, April 4th, 2014
Issue 14, Volume 18.

MENIFEE – Beginning April 1, lost or abandoned animals found in Menifee and not reunited with owners by the end of the day will be sheltered at the San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus.

Currently Menifee contracts with the Ramona Humane Society for animal sheltering. At the beginning of March, the Ramona Humane Society announced they could no longer provide sheltering services for the city. In response, the city has contracted with the County of Riverside to shelter animals while maintaining the existing arrangement with Animal Friends of the Valleys to provide animal control services.

Animal Friends of the Valley will continue to respond to animal control calls and collect stray or lost animals.

Throughout the course of the day, they will attempt to return lost pets to owners by using microchip information or license tags. If Advertisement

owners are not located, the lost animals will be transported to the San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus, located at 581 S. Grand Avenue in San Jacinto, 92582.

After April 1, Menifee residents searching for lost pets should call the San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus at (951) 358-7387, Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. The facility is closed Sunday and Monday.

In addition to sheltering lost or stray animals, the San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus also provides vaccination and microchip services on a drop-in basis.

Animal Friends of the Valleys continues to provide animal control and pet licensing services for the Menifee. They can be reached at (951) 674-0618
