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.
The goal of the Sacramento SPCA’s adoption program is to find out more about your needs and ideals and to provide assistance in choosing an animal that is right for you and your lifestyle. Combining your research with our resources will help ensure that you have the best possible start with your new companion.
