Sacramento SPCA's Adoption Process

Adoption Procedure

Visiting any shelter for the first time can seem overwhelming. So many potential pets to choose from — where do you begin? By reading this information before you come to visit us, and by filling out our Matchmaker Form ahead of time, you’ll be ready to make the best choice.

Step 1: Walk Through the Animal Areas

Walk through our animal areas and look at the available animals. You may read the information for each animal, which includes the animals’ age, breed, reason for surrender, owner questionnaire and the results and recommendations from our behavior evaluation.

When you find a pet that interests you, you’ll be asked to complete a Matchmaker Form. Please keep your children with you at all times and remind them not to put their fingers into an animal’s cage. Not only is it potentially dangerous for you, it can also spread diseases similar to common colds among the animals.

Step 2: Complete the Matchmaker Form

The second thing you’ll be asked to do is to fill out our Matchmaker Form. You can download it now and have it ready when you visit our shelter. This form will save you some time when you visit our shelter and assist us in helping you find a pet that meets your expectations and lifestyle. We will also need to verify your identification.

Animal adoptions can take more than 30 minutes to complete. When visiting our adoption center please note that we do not begin new animal visitations or process adoption applications after 5:30 p.m., but invite you to come back the next business day

You can also complete a matchmaker online application in advance of arriving to the shelter by registering with Petango.

Step 3: Meet with an Adoption Counselor
When you find a pet that you’d like to meet, you’ll talk with an adoption counselor who will review your Matchmaker form and help you decide which types of pets are right for you – including breed, age, temperament, etc.

Step 4: Meeting and Adopting Animals
Your adoption counselor can help you meet pets that match your interests and lifestyle. You can take animals to acquaintance areas and get to know them a little better. All of our animals must be spayed or neutered before they leave the shelter. If they are not already altered, you can complete the adoption that day and will be able to pick up your new pet in one to three days.

If you are adopting a dog and already have one at home, you may be asked to put your desired dog on hold and bring your dog to the shelter within three hours to meet him or her. We do not recommend that you leave your dog in your car while you look at other dogs – the interior car temperature even in the spring or fall can reach lethally hot levels in minutes. Ask our adoptions staff for help.

Step 5: Paperwork and Fees
When you have selected your new pet, there will be some paperwork to fill out and payment of adoption fees at the front desk. On weekends especially, there can be many adoptions going on so we ask for your patience if you have to wait during this step. The adoption fee for dogs is $100, and $150 for puppies six months of age and under. The adoption fee for cats one and older is $45, and kittens are $85. The adoption fees for small animals (rabbits, hamsters, iguanas, guinea pigs, rats, etc.) vary depending on species. We accept cash, credit card or debit card. (Sorry, no checks!)

We offer reduced adoptions fees for military/veterans with valid military i.d. or DD214, and free or reduced-cost adoption fees for adopters age 65 and older. Do you want to learn about other programs we offer senior citizens?

About Sacramento SPCA

The Sacramento SPCA is an open admission animal shelter, which means we accept animals that are surrendered to us regardless of health, age, breed or behavior. Open admission shelters play an essential role in providing care to the thousands of animals that would otherwise have no safe refuge.

The Sacramento SPCA believes in helping the greatest number of animals with our available resources. Euthanasia is determined by the results of the animal’s health and behavioral evaluation and the resources we have available to us at the time.

The Sacramento SPCA is committed to saving animal lives and practices each step of the “no kill” equation including: providing medical care, adoptions, working on behavior and training, developing partnerships within the community and with rescue groups, maintaining a strong foster program, providing free services to seniors to keep their pets, and operating an on-site low-cost spay/neuter and vaccine clinic.

We utilize every resource we have before the difficult decision to euthanize is considered.

The Sacramento SPCA also offers an option for owned animals when there is a verified need for end of life services.
