Adoption Process

  Step 1: Gather the required forms of identification

Adopter must be 18 years of age to adopt a pet from the Peninsula SPCA. All adoptions require a picture ID (driver’s license, passport. or official state/government ID).

  Step 2: Select your pet

Our staff wants to help you find the pet that is just right for you and your lifestyle. Since your new pet will be with you for many years, this is an important commitment that should not be rushed into! Please visit our shelter to see what pets are currently waiting for a home. We will discuss your needs and help you determine which type of animal would be the best match for you!

  Step 3: Adopt your new pet

Our adoption counselors will be waiting to finalize your adoption process. Your new pet will want to meet her new veterinarian! Veterinarians from the Peninsula Veterinary Association donate a free exam for every animal adopted from the Peninsula SPCA. This examination is an excellent chance to ask specific questions about integrating your new pet with your existing pets and family members, what type of food to choose, and to get a more in depth view of your pet’s health and age- or breed-related needs.
