About The Burbank Animal Shelter

The City of Burbank Animal Shelter has been providing quality Animal Control services since the 1950’s. Our mission is to return lost animals to their owners, to find loving homes for stray animals and to control overpopulation through consistent spay/neuter efforts. We strive to eliminate animal suffering by educating the public and enforcing the humane treatment of animals.
The Burbank Animal Shelter is currently staffed by 14 employees. Staff is supported by
approximately 100 volunteers. Both staff and volunteers work daily to provide care,
food and veterinary service for the animals arriving at the Shelter. The Shelter’s
medical program is responsible for spaying and neutering animals adopted from the
Shelter and treating ailments that would normally hinder an animal from being adopted.

The Shelter features special adoption events and discounted adoption rates throughout the year
adopting harder to place animals. Volunteers also host and attend various events in the community to showcase our animals.
We know that together we can make a difference and continue to strive daily to become the best
animal care facility we can by providing quality housing, food and medical care for those animals
who have been lost or abandoned. We strive to pave the way for a brighter future for animals in
the Burbank Community and to ensure that our strays have a chance to get what we all desire for
them - a loving, permanent home.
