Pet Adoption Process


Before You Adopt

Before you adopt, it’s always a good idea to do your research and find out more about the tendencies and personality traits of dogs and cats that interest you.  While every animal is an individual, there are general breed characteristics that influence how that animal may behave.  You should also consider the age, size, exercise requirements, grooming needs and potential health concerns of each breed or breed mix.


Pet Request Program

Finding The Right Pet Can Be An Exhausting Process…

…but we can help!  Through our Pet Request Program we’ll do the searching for you!

The cost is $50 (non-refundable) for a 90-day search or until you adopt a match, whichever comes first.

To get started, simply complete the appropriate Matchmaker questionnaire listed below and fax it to us at (916) 383-7062.  We’ll then schedule a time to meet with you at the Sacramento SPCA to discuss who it is you’re looking for.
