Adoption is the foundation of our work. Matching animals to loving homes enriches the lives of both pets and their humans. Animals in our care have as much time as they need to find the perfect home. We never euthanize for time or space.
We encourage families to seek out their next family member through adoption. Humane Society Silicon Valley uses innovative solutions to remove barriers to adoption, and to celebrate the magic of the human-animal bond. Our adoption counselors have in-depth educational discussions with customers to help find the right animal for them.
In Fiscal Year 2016, we found homes for over 4,600 animals! This is due to our many programs that allow us to reach out deeply into the community:
ANIMAL COMMUNITY CENTER ADOPTIONS
Our state-of-the-art facility focuses on specialized matchmaking and guardianship programs.
NEIGHBORHOOD ADOPTION CENTERS
With three locations inside Petco and PetSmart stores, we are part of local neighborhoods, making it more convenient to adopt a new pet.
To help animals find homes faster, especially when community shelters are full, we offer adoptions at a reduced price.
Adoption discounts are available all year long to Veterans and seniors who adopt pets older than six years.
WORKING CAT PROGRAM
Less-social cats, not suitable as household companions, are placed in barns, garden nurseries and other sheltered areas to lead rich, outdoor lives.
