Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our shelter pets and providing them with a forever home!

Without your support, we could not continue our life saving efforts.

To adopt an animal from us please do the following:

  2. When you find an animal you are interested in, click on the profile picture and open the link that says “Click here to Indicate an Interest in this animal”.
  3. Fill out the required fields in the form and click submit interest. Due to the volume of interest submissions, questions asked in the ‘comments’ section may not be answered.
  4. You will receive a bounce back email with further information and instructions.

Please note: Online adoptions are conducted from 8am-12pm.

California law requires that all adopted dogs and cats be spayed or neutered before leaving our animal shelters.

Below are some important tips to guide you through our adoption process:

  • Submitting an interest does not guarantee an adoption. Although we have plenty of animals available for adoption. You can submit an interest only once per animal. However, you can submit interests on multiple animals.
  • Your tax dollars at work! Riverside County residents within our jurisdictions will receive priority for adoptions irrespective of their place in line.
  • If you submit an interest, there is still a chance the owner may come to claim their pet. In these instances, the animal will no longer be available for adoption. You will be notified by email if this occurs.
  • If there are multiple website interests on one animal, we will pool all the interested persons and enter the top 3 in a random number generator. The person whose place in line matches the number generated 1st, will be the one who has first pick.

If that individual is unable to adopt the animal, the next person will be called. This will be repeated if the second person changed their mind. If you are not selected for adoption, you will receive an email notifying you that the animal you submitted an interest for has been adopted.

  • Having a hard time finding an animal to adopt? A good way to get first pick on an animal is to become a foster.

A foster parent gets priority for adoption of the animal they’ve fostered.
