Wet Nose Wednesdays
The Hayward Animal Shelter is a municipal shelter providing service to the incorporated areas of Hayward. We advocate for the humane treatment of all animals; companion, domestic, and wild alike and provide services to several thousands of animals of varying backgrounds per year.
The staff help the animals and protect Hayward’s residents by mitigating animal threats, tackling animal overpopulation and addressing claims of animal cruelty. These objectives are met through a number of methods, which include apprehension of stray, fractious and aggressive domestic animals; enforcement of local, state and federal animal laws; adoptions and sterilization programs.We proactively focus our energy on humane education, community outreach and program development while providing a secure safe haven for shelter residents.
