Salutations, humans! I’m Beatrice – the fabulously floofy brown tabby with ear tufts that are the envy of the feline world. Rumor has it I’m part Maine Coon, and let me tell you, I’m not one to deny such prestigious lineage. Being mistaken for feline nobility is just part of my charm. But wait, there’s more! I’m also a one-eyed wonder, but fear not, I don’t need a monocle. My remaining eye is OK and my other senses are as sharp as my wit. Who needs two eyes when you’ve got one that’s OK and a sixth sense for style? Plus, it adds a dash of mystique to my already alluring aura. If you’re on the prowl for a furry companion who’s the whole package – beauty, charisma, and a touch of enigma – look no further than Beatrice. Swing by and meet me today, and you’ll soon see why I’m the feline belle of the ball at the SF SPCA!
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.
