Kern County Animal Services
Kern County Animal Services is pleased to have the opportunity to work with your Rescue association. We will endeavor to contact your association when we have animals that are deemed not adoptable to a home. Our animals are posted on Should you see an animal in which you are interested, please call our rescue coordinator. We are comforted that with the time, care and love that your organization can provide to these animals, they will become adoptable and find permanent, loving homes.

In order for Kern County Animal Services to have a formal, long term relationship with your Rescue association, we ask that you please download and complete the “ Adoption Partnership Application”, “Rescue Agreement”, and the “Rescue Foster Home Sheet“.

Please sign two originals of the Agreement and send both originals; please send one completed Application. Send the documents to Kern County Animal Services, 3951 Fruitvale Ave, Bakersfield, CA 93308, Attn: Angela Stevens. We will mail back one fully executed original Agreement for your records.

I am happy to inform you that we have one Animal Care Worker dedicated to working with Rescue groups. Angela Stevens is ready to answer any questions you may have over the phone; and, when you visit our facility, she will be here to assist you. She can be reached via email at or you can leave her a message at 661-868-7143.

Kern County Animal Services looks forward to a long partnership and the placement of many more animals into loving homes as a result of our collaboration.
