About Humane Society Silicon Valley's Adoption Scholarship Program
Humane Society Silicon Valley’s Adoption Scholarship Program is an innovative way to shine a light on some of our special dogs, cats, and rabbits who have been in our care for 100 days or more and are waiting patiently for us to help them find their permanent, loving home. These special pets still have a lot to give, but may not immediately stand out, and have not been snatched up quickly by adopters like other animals here. Humane Society Silicon Valley puts our pets on “scholarship” by waiving their adoption fee ($175 for cats and dogs, $70 for rabbits) to help them find a home. Our adoption counselors still follow the same rigorous adoption process to ensure a match with the right individual or family…this special incentive is just a way to encourage more people to consider these special pets. It’s our way of highlighting them and drawing attention to them – and it’s working!
