Are you looking to adopt a pet in the Palm Springs area? We have a number of lovable pets waiting for adoption in Palm Springs.
The Palm Springs Animal Shelter is an open-admission municipal shelter serving the City of Palm Springs. The shelter is operated by Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, a non-profit organization dedicated to building a community responsible for pet stewardship and humane treatment of animals. The public/private partnership has created a compassionate and progressive shelter that serves as safe haven for both highly adoptable animals as well as those who require behavioral training or medical treatment before they can be adopted into loving homes.
Come Meet our Pets:
Our shelter is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am until 5pm and Thursday from 1pm until 7pm. We are closed every Tuesday and all major holidays.
Our Adoption Process:
ADOPTION The Compassionate Choice. Choosing to adopt an animal rather than buying from a breeder or pet shop is the easiest and best thing you can do to help reduce the number of unwanted pets. Shelters across the country are filled with wonderful dogs and cats looking for safe, loving homes. Each and every one of them deserves to be loved. Bringing a new animal into your home is a big decision. We ask all potential adopters or "guardians" to complete a comprehensive questionnaire and then meet with one of our trained adoption counselors who will help find the right pet for your lifestyle. Because your new pet is an important part of your family, we encourage you to bring ALL family members in to meet him or her, including your dog(s) if you are considering adopting one of shelter dogs. The adoption fees are $60 for a cat and $80 for a dog. This low fee includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, a registered micro-chip, and a wellness check. Additionally, you receive a free wellness exam .
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
