Our Adoption Process...
* Be 18 years of age or older.
* Have valid state-issued identification.
* Be allowed to have a pet where you live.
We recommend getting your landlord's or
home owner association's permission in
writing before you adopt, to protect you
and your pet.
* Be willing and able to spend the time and
money necessary to provide training,
medical attention, and proper care for
your new pet.
Berkeley Humane believes in an adoption process that carefully matches the lifestyle and expectations of adopters with the needs of our animals. This ensures a successful adoption and helps pets remaining in the new homes for the rest of their lives.
When you express an interest in adopting, our staff will ask you questions about what you're looking for, your home, lifestyle, and household, in order to suggest appropriate pets or determine a specific animal's suitability for your home.
