Jonas has been waiting since February for a new family to come to the San Bernardino County Animal Shelter to adopt him. Can you tell someone Jonas is here and wants to go home?

This beautiful two-year-old German shepherd arrived at the shelter as a stray a month ago. He has been kenneled with other dogs and has done fine.

JONAS – ID#A562804

My name is Jonas and I am an unaltered male, black and brown German Shepherd Dog. Shelter staff think I am about 2 years and 1 month old. I have been at the shelter since Feb 13, 2024.

This is what volunteers had to say about Jonas:

This dog arrived on 2/13/24 at City of San Bernardino Animal Control-Shelter emaciated. He’s been there a month now and has put on weight. He’s super sweet and loved visitors. He’d love one of those visitors to take him HOME

#A562804 Staff named him Jonas.


ID #A562804

To meet this special dog or any other, call the shelter at (909) 384-1304 and refer to the dog’s ID# when calling. Please be patient. They are very busy and very understaffed. Hold times may be long.

For rescue organizations, please email the shelter to place a hold on the dog you wish to rescue. Include the dog’s ID#, name and number of your puller and the date you plan to pull.

Shelter hours are Tues-Sat 10AM to 5PM Closed Sun/Mon
