About Our Shelter:

SPCA of Solano County is a privately funded non-profit animal shelter founded in 1974. The SPCASC is dedicated to finding loving responsible homes for adoptable animals in Solano County. We are located on five acres in Vacaville California; about 30 minutes from Sacramento and 45 minutes from Sacramento.

We have a variety of animals for adoption including dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and occasionally small animals and reptiles. We do not receive any funding from local, state or federal agencies. All of our funding comes from private denotations, surrender fees and adoption fees.

Donate to Our Shelter...

The SPCA of Solano County is a 501c3 adoption guarantee animal shelter in Vacaville, Ca. We DO NOT receive any funding from the city, state, or county. We operate entirely on adoption fees, fundraising events, and private donations from generous animal lovers! It is important to know that if you want to support your local animal shelter donate directly to that shelter. If you donate with the phone number on TV you are donating to the HSUS or ASPCA in New York. NONE of the money goes to the local shelter that desperately needs it.

Come Meet our Pets:

All of our adoptable pets are available to visit during regular adoption hours. We are closed to the public Monday - Wednesday. Adoption hours are Thursday & Friday 12:30 - 6:00 and Saturday & Sunday 12:00 - 5:00.

Our retail store is also open during regular adoption hours.

Our Adoption Process:

The first thing to remember is that animals are here looking for forever homes so we do not "hold" any animal unless an adoption is pending. We suggest that you call to check and see if the animal is still here before driving a long distance.

Adoption fees include spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, and health exam with a local veterinarian. New adoptors are also receive 10% off their purchase of supplies for their new pet. Cat adoption fees range from $45 - $75, and dogs usually range from $100 - $300 depending on the dog. Remember this is how we survive and are able to care for them until they find homes.

Everyone in the home must come meet with the potential dog. If you have a dog already we require you to bring him for a meet and greet with the new dog. We want to make sure things go smoothly and there aren't any problems. Make sure you also let us know if you have a cat, bunny, etc so we can let you know if the pet you are looking at gets along well with them.

The last thing you need to bring with you is proof you can have another pet where you live. It needs to be written proof or we can call your landlord to get approval. If you own your home a mortgage slip to show us is acceptable.

When you come to visit the animals an adoption counselor will meet with you and the pet to give you the history that we have as well as any behaviors that we have observed.

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.
