If you’re meeting dogs/puppies, you’ll receive a text when an adoption counselor is available to introduce you to our available animals. If you’re meeting cats/kittens, you are able to introduce yourself to available animals and let our staff know when you’re ready to adopt.  Adoptions are first-come first-serve, so if you are interested in adopting one specific animal, please let our staff know right away!

3. Let’s go home, buddy! If you’re ready to adopt, an adoption counselor will help you set up your new pet for success and complete all paperwork and payment. Your new pet will be ready to go home the same day! Please note that all dogs/puppies must leave on a leash and collar and cats/kittens must leave in a carrier. These items may be purchased during your visit if you do not already have them.

For visitors with food allergies: Please be aware that some of the dog treats used may contain or come into contact with peanuts. Be sure to notify staff and volunteers when you visit!

Make an impact for an animal in need

Did you know that you can sponsor the adoption fees for a needy animal? Heather and Matt Robbins adopted Abby from HSSV, and regularly come to our Peter Detkin and Michelle Oates Detkin Animal Community Center to sponsor the care and adoptions for animals that need it most.

Benefits Of A HSSV Adoption

Starting with excellent matchmaking services from our adoption counselors, an HSSV adoption includes:

  1. Spay/Neuter surgery
  2. All necessary vaccines appropriate for the animal’s age and routine deworming
  3. Home Again Microchip with lifetime registration
  4. Expert tips on pet care and training, including free behavior advice for the lifetime of the animal from a behavior specialist
  5. Post Adoption advice as your new pet adjusts to the home
  6. All our animals have been examined by veterinary staff and received a behavior assessment. You will receive a behavioral note about their time in our care.

The Cost Comparison Of Adopted Animal Vs. A “Free Pet”

A free pet may seem like a great deal, but pet care costs add up quickly. For a better value, adopt from Humane Society Silicon Valley, where adoptions include a full array of services to keep your new companion safe and healthy.
