Animal Control Services and the Animal Shelter are managed by the Newport Beach Police Department.

The Shelter has the requisite staff, amenities, and volunteers to ensure that the animals experience a comfortable, healthy environment while at the Shelter.

Animals may be lost, abandoned, strayed, owner turn-ins, or emergency placement due to owner accident, illness, incarceration, or natural disaster. Many are successfully returned to their own homes, while others are placed in forever homes through adoption.

Animal Control Officers are assisted by volunteers in the care and socialization of animals in residence.
