Did someone inspire your love of animals? Do you want to recognize someone special with a gift in their honor? Donate in honor or memory of a special pet or person, and help save and protect homeless animals.
Upon your request, with your gift of $35 or more, we can send a beautiful card to notify your recipient of your generous donation. The card features animals adopted from our Adoption Center. Please allow -10 business days for processing and mailing.
Your gift of $10,000 or more can memorialize an animal lover or an animal by naming a space in our facility for five years in their honor.
To make your honor or memorial donation, please complete the form below. Alternatively, you may contact the Development team at 415-554-3029 or firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
