Adoption Policy

*NOTE: At this time all adoptions are done by appointment in order to help us meet COVID-19 social distancing requirements. So our adoption process is modified!*

If you see an animal you are interested, please call us at (916) 687-3042 and press '3' to leave a message in our Adoption Interest Inbox! You may also email us at but please be sure to leave a phone number we can call you at.

We will contact interested parties in the order they expressed interest, so if you are not the first interested party you are not guaranteed to be contacted. However if you indicate interest in multiple animals, we will do our best to call and talk to you about them.

If you are first in line for a dog, we will give you a call to give you some basic information and schedule a time for you to come meet the dog in person before proceeding with adoption.

If you are first in line for a cat, kitten, or small animal, we will conduct your adoption consult fully over the phone. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we do not have a safe way to conduct in person meet and greets for our felines and small animals. Our staff will help make the right match for you and schedule a time for you to finalize your adoption and pick up your new friend.
