Adoption Procedure/Application

Adoption Procedure

Thank you for your interest in adopting from the Sacramento SPCA. We are now offering adoptions by appointment only.

We are extremely grateful to our community for your excitement and willingness to adopt a shelter pet during this time. We appreciate your patience and support as we transition to an appointment-based system and continue to explore new ways to streamline the adoption process.

What You Get When You Adopt

What Your Adoption Fee Includes

Though it costs over $35 a day to care for each animal, our adoption fees remain modest and affordable. We welcome additional donations as the Sacramento SPCA depends solely on private contributions and receives no government funds.
