About the Shelter

For more than 30 years the San Clemente-Dana Point Animal Shelter has rescued our cities’ lost and abandoned animals. From its humble beginnings in a trailer in San Clemente to its current location overlooking Camp Pendleton, this special shelter has maintained a progressive and innovative approach to animal welfare. In partnership with Pet Project Foundation, the shelter is able to ensure that every animal in its care receives a warm bed, outstanding veterinary care, nutritious food, and daily socialization and exercise – all provided until a permanent, loving home can be found.
