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.
Parker is an estimated 1 year old Retriever/Pit Bull mix who arrived to us from San Francisco Animal Care & Control. She is a perky and personable pup who loves to go to our play yard and play with toys to her heart’s content. She is progressing so well with her training to help with her lively personality. Parker is a smart pup as well and already knows cues such as auto-sits and touches. She will surely bring joy to any home she goes to!
Here’s what a good samaritan, who found Parker and brought her into the shelter, had to say about her:
“I could go on and on about how Parker turned my world upside down for a day, but just go to the SPCA and meet her. She’ll change your life. She is such a magical, goofy character who wants to be out in the world and explore and learn and rest her head on your stomach as you fall asleep.”
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.
“I love it when you call me big papa-ya!” This beauty loves hanging out with people and getting all the affection. Her excitement can sometimes cause her to jump up on you, or pull while she’s out on a walk, but we know she means well! Thankfully, treats teach Papaya how to enjoy calm outings and interactions. When she feels very comfy with you, she will lay on your lap! How many of us can say we had a Papaya lay down in our lap? Come and pick this girl off the shelter tree and take her home with you.
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!
Sophie is a silly young lady. She is quite a playful pup who loves to be active with activities like hikes and zoomies in the play yard. She is also super smart at well as she is fluent in a few behaviors like Look! and Touch. She does best with slow introductions where she can get to know you for a bit, then show you her super goofy and affectionate side. Come meet her!
Sammy is such a super silly boy with a great zest and curiosity for life. He is at a great age for learning, so continued training will help him become a fantastic dog. He will do best in continuing his positive reinforcement training to ensure he keeps his skills super sharp. Come meet him!
Ross is a classic all-American boy. He is strong, sturdy, and people-oriented. When we think of a dog, Ross’ friendly and energetic image is what we think of. He is excited to see his humans and has an insatiable curiosity for the world. Ross is truly “man’s best friend.”
Rex is a good and regal boy. He is such a charmer and a true delight to everyone he meets. He is looking for a home with lots of mental stimulation and physical exercise to keep his smart mind and strong body engaged. Rex has done amazing in his foster home, and his foster parents had nothing but praise for him. At first he was nervous with new things but made great strides of confidence with the help of treats and gentle encouragements. He did very well with another respectful shepherd in the home. They made amazing pals and would often share treats with each other! How Cute! This handsome pup is ready to find his forever home and make some amazing memories with his new family!

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.
