It breaks my heart to do this, but I need to find a new home for my sweet cat, Skittles. I adopted Skittles when he was 7 months old from the Peninsula Humane Society in 2016, he’s now just over 7 1/2 years old. He’s always been a skittish (no pun intended) kitty, especially around strangers and men, but he has always been loving and affectionate with my sister and me. He doesn’t scratch or bite, but he does have some anxiety issues. Skittles is a great cuddler once he gets to know you, and he loves going outside, playing with catnip toys, and having someone pet him while he eats. At times he can be a stage 5 clinger, and if I’m not with him he will meow down the hall for me. He loved our old family dog but does not get along with the energetic puppy my parents got a few years ago, so if you have a dog, it would need to be very mellow. Someone who spends a lot of time at home and has a backyard would be an ideal adopter.

Hello! I will be moving for work and am looking for a new loving home for my sweet neutered 7 pound senior cat, Mr. BK (short for Black Kitty). He is a confident and independent 15 year old that I rescued from 5 years of living on the streets. He lived with a family for 10 years before that. He has a great temperament, is very mellow, and has a lot of personality. He’s clean and easy to take care of, and has been a great little buddy, smart, playful, funny and curious. He’s friendly and social, and gets chirpy and cuddly once he gets to know you. He has the whitest whiskers and cutest meow! He seems to enjoy being an only cat, and would do well as either an indoor or indoor-outdoor cat. He has hyperthyroidism that is under control with a twice-daily pill and needs to be checked at the vet every 3-6 months or so. He has a small heart murmur that a cardiologist recently said does not require treatment. I would love to find a peaceful home for him to before August, and I can provide you with all the necessary equipment like a cat carrier, litter box, flea medicine, scratching post and toys, as well as all of his medical records. Please contact me if you think you’d be a good fit and we can find out if this sweet little guy is for you!

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.
