Adopting Your Next Pet


We have lots of cats and dogs who would love to find their perfect home with you. Once you’ve found a pet that strikes your fancy, and you’ve spent some one-on-one time with him or her to see if you hit it off, we’ll ask you to fill out an application form.  SPCA staff will go over it with you to make sure that you and your potential animal friend are a good match.
