Adoption is a wonderful way to find a new best friend and SVACA's friendly staff and volunteers do their all to make the adoption process fun and easy. Our goal is to make "perfect" matches so that our animals remain with their new guardians for the remainder of their lives.

Adopters must be at least 18 years old and have a government-issued photo ID.
Please do not bring pets to the center unless you have been instructed to do so by SVACA staff.
In certain circumstances, SVACA reserves the right to deny adoptions for cause. To learn more about why an adoption may be denied, please contact our office at (408) 764-0344.
Fees cover the spay or neuter of the animal, initial appropriate vaccinations, a professional health examination and behavior evaluation, microchip, temporary ID tag, and a free examination at a participating local veterinary clinic. SVACA member city residents also receive a license for their new companion. All fees are retained by SVACA and used to offset the cost of our operations; simply said, fees directly help the animals!
