Koda is the sweetest, loving little snugglebug. He’s a rescue from the Oakland SPCA and I’ve had him since he was about 3 months old and 22 lbs. He absolutely loves people and pretty much all dogs, too (just not puppies). When he sees a person he knows or meets a new friend, he gets so happy his whole body wags. He isn’t a dog park kinda dog because he doesn’t like to share toys/is prone to getting a little too excited. He’s an incredibly sweet pup with a whole lot of personality, and would do best in an active home that’s either with grown children or just adults. He’s great with my 2 year old niece, but it would be easier to manage him without lots of kids around. He has my whole heart and the only reason we’re considering rehoming him is because my partner has developed allergies that just landed him in the ER. We’re posting this in hopes of finding a great new family for our sweet boy, and if you ever need a dog sitter I will happily volunteer/I’d love to keep him in my orbit if that would be of interest to you as an adopter (but of course I’ll respect boundaries and understand if that’s a no!). Please reach out if you have any questions or curiosities!

To expedite the adoption process, please complete the cat or dog adoption form and bring a printed copy with you to the SF SPCA Adoption Center (Hours & Location). This helps us better understand what sort of pet you’re looking for so we can guide you every step of the way! Please bring a valid photo ID and verification that you are allowed to have a pet where you currently live.
First, we’ll meet with you to find out more about you and your pet preferences and answer your questions. Our goal is to help you find the pet that best fits your lifestyle and living situation so we want to make sure you have a realistic understanding of the time and resources necessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for your new pet. This can take time so please allow at least one hour for the adoption process.
Once we have a good understanding of your living situation and the type of pet you’re interested in, we’ll make introductions and let you spend some quality time getting to know each other to see if there’s a love connection. It’s important that all household members take part in this important decision so please make sure everyone is present (including any resident dogs if you’re considering adding a new pooch to your pack).
Once love happens, we’ll complete the paperwork, review all the SF SPCA adoption benefits, provide information on any known medical or behavioral issues, and share tips to make the transition a success for both you and your new pet.
We consider you and your new furry friend a part of the SF SPCA family so please reach out with questions ― and be sure to share your adoption stories and pet photos at sfspca.org/stories
Don’t forget to schedule your first free health exam at the SF SPCA Veterinary Hospital within three days of adopting.
