The RC Animal Center cares for over 5,000 animals annually. When these animals move on to their new homes, either through adoption or rescue groups, we look forward to receiving updates on their new lives.

Check out a few of our recent adoptee stories:

Packer (Formerly Harvey)

"Packer is doing so well and is loved! I couldn’t be happier with him. He is so loved by everyone he meets. He is living a life full of hikes, catch, couch snuggles, and walks. He couldn’t be a better puppy! Right now he is practicing to be the ring bearer in my wedding."

- Packer's new family


"Charlotte is a sweetheart, she just wants to be petted. She joined senior brothers Nate and Turbo, and they love romping in the backyard, exploring on hikes, and taking good long naps together!"

- Charlotte's new family


"Cornelia has settled in so nicely and is doing great! We just adore her!!! She definitely was scared of so much when she first came. We had to take everything really slow, but we have gained her trust, and she is learning to trust others! She loves our walks where she chases lizards, loves her bone broth on her food, and a little scoop of ice cream when it’s hot! 

Thank you for taking good care of her until she came home! In the next few months, I think we’ll all be ready for a kitty to complete everything."

- Cornelia's new family

Archie (Formerly Tubby)

"Archie is so cute and we are excited to have him in our family! He fits in great with our two tiny senior chihuahuas!! One is turning 17 this year & the other is an 11 year old rescue with no teeth. We live in Utah, so it was a 10 hour drive for us to get there and adopt him. Thanks again for all you guys do."

- Archie's new family


"Thank you so much for our new family member! Luna is fantastic! We are so happy to have her be a part of our family! The entire experience was great. Everyone was friendly, nice, and generally wonderful. The facilities are clean and modern. Thank you again!"

- Luna's new family

As we navigate through life's ups and downs, it is important to listen to your body and take care of yourselfSound healing is a technique that uses different types of music to promote healing. It works by using vibrations to affect your whole body, including your brain.

Sound healing also helps you relax and feel safe by using sounds from nature. These vibrations are believed to reduce stress, manage anxiety, and improve sleep. For more mental health resources and healing techniques, click the button below.

The safety of our RCcommUNITY remains a top priority, which is why the Rancho Cucamonga Fire District wants to remind all residents, businesses, and visitors about the dangers of fireworks.  


Fireworks can cause fires, property damage, injuries and even death. Not to mention, the unexpected loud noises can be traumatic for our sound sensitive neighbors including our veterans and pets. 


For this reason, all fireworks are prohibited in the City of Rancho Cucamonga, including safe and sane fireworks. How to report the use or sales of illegal fireworks:

  • Monday-Thursday 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., call the Fire District at 1-909-477-2770
  • After hours and on weekends, report to non-emergency dispatch at 1-909-941-1488
  • 24/7 via the City’s RC2GO Reporting Portal

We encourage you to be as specific as possible when reporting, including specific addresses when possible. Your efforts to report fireworks help keep our community safe. 


The Fire District also provides the opportunity to surrender fireworks at any time, no questions asked. Call 1-909-477-2770 or email at RCfire@CityofRc.usto schedule a pick up. 


We hope you join this community-wide effort to decrease injuries and preventable fires and we encourage you to enjoy a professional fireworks display whenever possible, as they are monitored and managed for the safety of others. Your Fire District wants you to celebrate a great holiday, but please be safe and keep your fellow neighbor in mind.
