Violet is the sweetest, most loyal 11 year old sidekick you could ask for. Having been my grandma’s dog up until two years ago, she thrives with constant company. She loves sunning herself when the weather allows, lounging and watching TV by your side, meeting new people, belly rubs, running errands with you, and anything chicken-flavored. Never being left alone most of her life, she does suffer from separation anxiety. She is not destructive, does not ruin things or urinate in the house, but she barks when left at home, even in the company of another dog. We’ve consulted multiple vets and behaviorists for her but have been repeatedly told that because of her age, we are very limited in our training options and sadly our neighbors are less than understanding. She really is an angel at home as long as somebody is there and she’s great for our sitter and friends who watch her. Vi gets along well with cats and other dogs. She is spayed, has no other health conditions, and goes to her checkups very regularly. Violet is an energetic, spunky, happy pup as long as she has a human to share the love with.

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.
