The El Cajon Animal Shelter is located at:
1275 N. Marshall Avenue, El Cajon, CA 92020
Phone: (619)441-1580

The shelter is open to the public from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM, Tuesday through Saturday. The shelter is closed Sunday and Monday.

The El Cajon Animal Shelter houses stray or relinquished pets found within the city limits of El Cajon and La Mesa. Animals not claimed by their owners are placed up for adoption to the general public.

Did you know that the El Cajon Animal Shelter has one of the highest number of pet adoptions in San Diego County? Our shelter was built in 1957 and never designed to house cats. New kennels and an office were added in 1971 but the facility is sorely inadequate in spite of it’s astonishing adoption rate of nearly 2,800 animals last year.

And did you know the El Cajon Animal Shelter is the only shelter in East County? Other facilities are in Bonita, North Escondido, and in central San Diego.

Many residents learned more about the El Cajon Animal Shelter during Fire Storm 2003 when it provided shelter to over 250 displaced and lost pets.  The shelter cared for goats, donkeys, dogs, cats, reptiles and hybrid wolves for up to three months with no extra staffing. These animal accomodations were provided to pet owners at no cost thanks to generous public donations.

Many of you helped pass Proposition ‘O’ to help build a new facility.  CONSTRUCTION HAS BEGUN, WITH COMPLETION OF THE SHELTER END OF 2018!! TO VIEW PROGRESS, YOU CAN GO TO:  http://elcajonprojects.com.

Even with the best planning, construction costs are sky-rocketing , therefore more funds are needed for additional construction costs and for educational programs not funded by the City of El Cajon.  You can find a list of these needs, see below
