The S.P.C.A. of Solano County is a non-profit organization that cares for and finds homes for adoptable animals.
During their stay at the shelter, the animals are provided with necessary veterinarian care, vaccinations, food, shelter, and plenty of love and affection. We are the only "Adoption Guarantee" shelter in our area and are supported wholly by adoption fees and private donations. Financial donations are always a great help to us and allow us to help more homeless animals find great new homes. Donations of blankets, toys, pet food, kitty litter, etc. are always welcome and appreciated.
We are also in need of foster families for young kittens or puppies. We have pets on occasion that just need a quiet place to recover and rest after an injury. If you are interested in being a temporary foster home to an animal in need please give us a call at the shelter. Foster families are provided with all the food and medical supplies for the pets they foster
How does the adoption process work?
You will need to come to the shelter in person to view our adoptable animals. We have new animals available all the time and it is difficult for shelter staff to give detailed descriptions over the phone. Once you find an animal you are interested in you will need to bring everyone in the household to meet with the animal. Many of our animals come to us without any history and we need to be sure everyone will be compatible. You will also need to bring any current dog family members to meet with the new dog. We also need to be sure the animals are compatible to avoid any problems that might occur. The final step is to fill out an adoption application and adoption interview with an adoption counselor.. We require them for all the dogs. This allows staff to find the best situation for the dog and family. It is difficult for dog and adopter when the new pet turns out to not be the right one for the family and has to return to the shelter. Our application process helps to avoid this type of stress. When you fill out your application you will need to bring proof that you can have a pet where you live. We understand that you may already have pets but we need to have that proof on file in our office. If you rent you will need something from your landlord, if you are looking at a pit or pit mix you must have specific permission from your landlord. If you own your home you must bring proof that you own the home. Many of our dogs have multiple applications on them. Do not let that prevent you from adding yours. You may be the perfect home the animal was looking for..
Our adoption hours are Thursday & Friday 1230-6 pm and Saturday & Sunday 12-5pm. Anyone wishing to make donations can come to the shelter at any time during those hours or call to make special arrangements.
