Greetings, fellow earthlings! I’ve just landed in this fine establishment, and they’ve bestowed upon me the moniker “Tomtom.” How it came to be, I haven’t the foggiest, but I’m open to suggestions. “Sir Purr-a-lot” has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? Now, onto business. I’m a 5-year-old sleek and stylish black cat on a mission to find my first abode. That’s right, I’m a first-time home-purr-chaser, and I’m ready to settle down with a family who appreciates my charm and wit. If you’re in the market for a feline companion with dashing good looks and a VERY sweet affectionate nature, look no further! I’m ready to make your acquaintance and explore the possibilities of a lifetime of purrs and cuddles. Let’s make it happen, folks!
Follow your nose on down to the SF SPCA and get a taste of this lovely Chai. This little miss is eager to find her forever home where she will gladly give lots of snuggles and kisses to the very right person or persons. Chai enjoys going on walks and being out and about. Chai is not a fan of feline family members, so she can’t live with cats. She is ready for her furr-ever home, so why not come meet Chai and see if she is your cup of tea.
Hello, esteemed humans! My name is Pip, and I’m here to present my official feline résumé. Now, before we dive in, I must disclose that I’m currently a little shy and still acclimating to my temporary abode at the SF SPCA. So, while I might seem a tad reserved at first, rest assured that I have a heart of gold just waiting to be discovered.
Objective: Eagerly seeking a permanent position as a devoted companion, certified lap warmer, and purr provider extraordinaire in a loving forever home.
Napping Connoisseur (Birth – Present):
*Obtained a PhD in Napping Arts, specializing in locating the snuggest spots for slumber, including sun-drenched windowsills, freshly laundered linens, and cozy laps.
*Exhibited unparalleled adaptability in conforming to a diverse array of sleep schedules and environments (cat naps are my forte!).
Chief Entertainment Officer (Kittenhood – Present):
*Demonstrated expertise in orchestrating dynamic play sessions with humans and fellow felines, utilizing an array of toys, string, and cardboard boxes.
*Showcased extraordinary athleticism through aerial acrobatics and high-speed zoomies, guaranteed to evoke amusement and awe from household members.
*SF SPCA Staff and Volunteers (can attest to my delightful charm, playful nature, and budding potential).
If my qualifications have piqued your interest, I cordially invite you to drop by for an interview (and perhaps a cuddle session) to explore whether I’m the purrfect fit for your home. I’m excited for the opportunity to reveal the true extent of my loving personality once I’m fully at ease.
Yours sincerely, Pip
Sweet Shelby is gaining so much confidence now! At first she was shy with all the new sounds and things, but she is making great progress. She will zoomy around the play yard and show her goofy side. At times strange and loud noises make her a little nervous, but she responds very well when we are gently cheering her on and hanging out in peaceful areas. She will do best in quieter areas where she can relax and be herself. Come meet her!
Dixie is sure to charm you with her southern hospitality. Need a companion for a nice walk, she’s your girl. Later want to hit the couch for binge tv and snacks, well you are looking at your potential new bestie. She will do best as the only animal in home, as she is a little nervous with other new animals. Dixie is an all around dog that can do it all with flourish and enthusiasm!
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.
