The shelter takes in dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, small reptiles, and other exotic pets.
Veterinary care for animals in the shelter includes ensuring all animals are spayed or neutered, have appropriate vaccinations, and are dewormed, and free of external parasites.
As part of the Santa Monica Police Department, the shelter and its officers also provide other important services for the city, including:
Investigation of complaints regarding animals
Conducting humane investigations when animal cruelty is suspected
