Lucia is Your Calaveras Pet of the Week!

San Andreas... Meet Lucia, a gorgeous torbie with an adorable dab of orange on the tip of her tail. She was a very shy and scared pregnant young adult when she was found. Two weeks later, Lucia gave birth to four kittens. A dedicated mom, Lucia took excellent care of her kittens and is now ready for a home of her own. Lucia is very sweet and gentle though still learning to trust people. She enjoys having her back gently stroked but remains a bit skittish when being held. Lucia likes to sniff your hand before you pet her and especially warms up to the person who gives her a Greenie, her favorite treat. She will require a calm household with adults and perhaps older children who are patient and understand the need to go s-l-o-w-l-y. We also believe with consistent, loving attention Lucia will gain confidence and this lovely girl will make a wonderful addition to her new home.

As with all cats available for adoption, Lucia is up-to-date on her routine vaccinations and has been micro-chipped. Already spayed, she is able to go home with you today.

Come visit Lucia, impound no. AO51494, along with other cats and dogs awaiting their forever homes at Calaveras County Animal Services, 901 Jeff Tuttle Drive, San Andreas (in government center by the new jail). Animal Services is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday - Saturday (closed for lunch from 1-2 p.m.). For more information about this kitty, please email Animal Services volunteer Cynthia at, Kathy at or call Animal Services directly at 754-6509. Please refer to Lucia’s impound number when making inquiries.

Currently, the Calaveras shelter remains open for visitors wishing to adopt. We are, however, limiting viewing to one person at a time in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please understand there may be a wait for you to view the shelter animals, many of which still await their forever homes during this pandemic. Adoptable animals may also be viewed on the web at and on the Calaveras County Animal Services Facebook page.

Volunteers are very much needed as well. Whether you can give a little time or a lot, we would appreciate your help caring for shelter animals or in the office. No experience necessary; we will provide training and match you to your interests. Please call 754-6509 for more information.

Animal Services now has a Fee Flexibility Program!

When the dog or cat population at the shelter is at 80% or above capacity, the total adoption fee will be 50% off––reduced to $40 for dogs and $30 for cats. The adoption fee for cats who arrive at the shelter already altered will be $10. With the 55-5-5 Program, any time an adopter is 55 or older and adopts any pet over 5 years old, the adoption fee is $5.

Pretty cat! Hey, why so many acorns this year? What a pain, using a snow shovel to take into. Still falling nonstop.

    Don't throw them in the dump, put them on the edge of your property for deer, turkeys and squirrels. Too bad we cant send them to areas that have burnt for the wildlife to eat.

        Person said pretty cat, then asked a question. Relax and chill out. Or better yet, maybe adopt the cat and give it some love, kitty will return your love and you might not act like such a fuking chithead grumpy moron?
        Whew, I feel so much better when I give out sound advise to grumpy aholes like you.
        May your weekend be as sweet and as adorable as you. 💞

            Advise is a verb that means to suggest what should be done, to recommend, or to give information to someone. The S of advise sounds like a Z.

    So many acorns because of rain after the drought last year and the year before. It's the trees way of ensuring there will be more of them no matter what comes next. (Actually, if the acorns are very thin it's a stress, ninth inning kind of reaction. If they're relatively fat, it means all is right with their world.) With more food, there will be more babies born next year (from squirrels to bears). It's a natural ebb and flow. Nature knows what it's doing; man not so much. Still, nothing to do with the topic at end and I hope there is some special person who can give this sweet kitty the patience and home it deserves.

      Would love to bring that kitty cat home. Haven’t had good luck with the two rotties being friendly with cats. I got the 8 foot bed loaded with acorns, hope the diesel can handle the load. Taking acorns to ex bosses property! Enough to feed every bear and squirrel from murphys to dorrington! Thanks for the advice.

I hope the Pine Nuts will go back under their rocks for awhile after the election. Meanwhile, hope this lovely girl finds a good home no matter their politics.
