We adopted Sunny from the SPCA in April of 2022 at almost 9 weeks old. She proved very affectionate and playful right away and quickly learned her way around the house and yard. She proved exceptionally good at learning tricks and has proven to be extra food motivated. While this helped with training we also started to notice that she would be possessive of her food and space around our kids or visitors. After working with the SPCA behaviorist and a trainer for several months we came to the hard conclusion that she would have a more stress free life in a quieter home without children or constant visitation, while continuing a lifestyle full of agility and endurance with either dog play or other exercise. She will be a loyal and loving companion for many years to come and so we are eager to find her a home that will match her sweetness.

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.
