Moe here is an eager boy with a good zest for life. Strong and bouncy, Moe cannot wait to go on walks with staff and loves to play fetch with everyone. Sometimes he will fetch two balls at once! He is improving a ton with good sits and settle cues, which will be great for when he’s in his forever home. Some new places and things make him a little nervous, but encouragement and treats always help him out. He brings a joy and jolly everywhere he goes and will liven up any home.
Thomas is the little engine that could. This cute and timid boy is progressing each day with his confidence. He still needs gentle encouragements on walks and when meeting new people with his current hesitations. He responds very well to soft happy talk and calm interactions. He will do best in a quiet home and with caring and patient adopters. Come meet this sweet pea!

Dashing delightful Dexter is estimated to be about a 1 year old Shepherd mix who arrived to our shelter from Fresno, CA. He can be very excitable and is learning to enjoy calm outings and interactions. He just can’t help himself-he can’t get enough of people! He loves affection, treats, and playing with toys of all shapes and sizes. Whoever decides to make Dexter a part of their family forever will surely not have a boring day ever again.
Shyloh is shy no more! Sweet, lady Shyloh is a volunteer favorite for her earnest eyes, impeccable (occasionally) fetch skills, and eagerness to keep up with her human pals. Arriving from Fresno was a bit of an adjustment but with time, treats and tender loving care this lady may be your next picnic or Farmer’s Market friend. She will do best with a lower dog traffic area where she can focus more on hanging out with you! Perky ears and a penchant for sniffing out a good snack mean that she could be a great training team for some lucky adopter! Come on down to the Adoption Center today!
Tucker is a beautiful 7 month old boy who’s looking for adopters to explore the world slowly with him. While he’s very friendly and great on walks with our volunteers, he may take a beat to warm up at first. We have nice and slow visits with this sweet guy to let him dictate how much interaction he would like. Once he’s feeling safe with you, his tail gets wagging and loves giving and receiving affection. Come meet Tucker today!
Pump up the yams, pump it up! Who’s the smartest spud in the garden? Sweet Potato says, “I yam!” This candied young lady will charm you with her delightful smile and disposition. Even with only 3 legs, she loves to show us her best zoomies in the yard and play fetch with all of our volunteers. She adores her yummy treat-o’s which is great for her training, and we’ve already reaped the results with her auto-sits. Sweet Potato brightens up everyone’s day when they meet her. Do you want to be her forever spuddy? Come in to meet her and never go for russet potatoes again.
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.
