Adoption Center

Adoption Center Closure

Our Adoption Center will be temporarily closed from Friday, April 18, through Saturday, May 10, while we renovate the space. The Adoption Center was last renovated 15 years ago. Since that time, thousands of animals have lived in the shelter before going on to their forever homes and our space has suffered significant wear and tear. We will be repairing leaking windows, patching damaged walls, improving lighting so that our shelter animals are more visible and adding environmentally-friendly (and pet-friendly!) paint to brighten the space. These improvements will make the Adoption Center a safer, cleaner and more appealing space for our shelter animals and potential adopters – leading to happier, healthier animals and, ultimately, more adoptions!

We encourage you to visit our shelter dogs and cats at our Mission campus until the Pacific Heights campus reopens.

Our Adoption Center

We have a San Francisco SPCA Adoption Center located on the upper level of our facility in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights district. To see which companion animals are waiting to meet you, visit the SF SPCA website! We’ll work with you to ensure the right fit and a smooth transition.

All of our animals have received a pre-adoption veterinary exam and behavior assessment, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and a microchip. And our adoption package includes a post-adoption veterinary exam, microchip registration, a coupon for PurinaONE ® pet food, 30 days of Pet Insurance compliments of 24PetWatch Pet Protection Services, and a discount at selected pet supply stores.
