This is a courtesy post for Antioch Animal Services which has several dogs and cats available for adoption.

Gretchen is a very friendly adult female who is 5 years old. She is a bit shy upon first meeting but warms up quickly, Gretchen is a gentle girl who enjoys being brushed, likes squeaky toys and loves the water, she is easy on the leash, does not bark unnecessarily and is very devoted. Please don't let her bark in the kennel turn you away, Gretchen is very affectionate, loves people and loves belly rubs. When she bonds with her person, that bond is loyal and solid!!

Gretchen is learning that a doggy friend can be fun. She would likely do well with an equally laid back male dog (meet and greet is a must) or she would be fine having all of your attention to herself. Please Inquire about this sweet girl by her ID# A132148. Gretchen's adoption fee is sponsored by her biggest fan, our shelter photographer, Michele.

You do NOT have to be a Resident of Antioch to adopt from Antioch Animal Services, we welcome non-resident adopters: however, if you are a resident of Antioch, we require you to purchase a 1 year dog license at the time of adoption per City of Antioch Ordinance.

While we do test our dogs to ensure they are dog friendly, we do require any canine in the household be present for a meet and greet to ensure compatibility prior to adoption. We recommend all household members be present as well. All adopters must present Government Issued Identification at time of adoption.

Cat Compatibility Testing is available on request. 

Adoption Fees include: spay/neuter, microchip and age appropriate vaccinations (if adopting a puppy, we recommend you consult with your Veterinarian to complete the "puppy series" of shots).

Read more about Gretchen on her Petfinder page, or contact Antioch Animal Services by email or phone: (925) 779-6989.
