Adoption Information

Adopt A Pet:

When you adopt a pet from a shelter or other rescue organization, you save lives. For every dog or cat you adopt from SVASC, we are able to save at least one more animal.

We do our best to ensure healthy, adoptable animals by providing pre-adoption assessment and veterinary care.

We assess each animal's temperament to the best of our ability and provide as much information as possible regarding the animal's behavior and personality.

Our Goal is to:

  • Find responsible individuals to adopt
  • Raise awareness and availability of shelter animals as companions and amazing family pets
  • Raise awareness about the importance of spay/neuter for population control
  • Reunite lost animals to their families

Adoption Process:

Adoption applicants must complete the appropriate application form as the first step to acquiring a pet. All adoption criteria must be met before the adoption is approved. Once approved, you are under no obligation to complete the adoption if you change your mind.

You can apply for a specific animal by name or simply to get “pre-approved” to make the adoption process quicker in the near future. We hold applications for 60 days.

Upon approval, there is a non-refundable adoption fee.

Please bring your photo ID/driver's license.

Note: Submitting an application indicates interest, and does not place the animal on hold. We are unable to offer a waiting list for animals in care.

More Information:

All dogs and cats are required to be spayed or neutered. The first step to solving pet overpopulation is to prevent contributing to it.

Pets are placed in the best possible home if there is more than one application pending. We cannot place a hold or accept a deposit on pets.

We do adopt to out-of-area homes. We will not ship a pet.
