Adoption Appointment

Post

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 are receiving a large number of applications daily and will call potential adopters in the order that their application form was received. 

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.

The Appointment Process & What to Expect:

  1. Submit Application for a Specific Available Animal
    (due to the volume of applications, it may take a couple of days before you receive a call or email from one of our counselors)
  2. Phone Counsel
  3. Meet Pet and Finalize Adoption

An available animal appearing on our website may already have an appointment to meet with a potential adopter. You will be notified when we call to confirm your appointment if the animal you have selected has another meeting appointment before you.
