Adoptions are completed in person on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you have found an animal you’re interested in, please visit the appropriate campus during adoption hours to speak with an adoption counselor.
Pardon our dust!
We’re renovating our Adoptions Building at our San Diego Campus (5500 Gaines St.). Please read this important information so you know what to expect when visiting our San Diego Campus:
Adoptable animals at our San Diego Campus are being temporarily housed at 5480 and 5495 Gaines St. and can be visited Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
- To adopt a pet: If you already know which pet(s) you'd like to meet or adopt, please check in at 5480 Gaines St. when you arrive on campus. An Adoption Counselor will then meet with you on a first-come, first-served basis, introduce you to the pet(s) you're interested in and help complete your adoption. In the meantime, please feel free to browse our adoptable pets!
- You can also see all adoptable animals on our website prior to your visit.
- Visit our other campuses! Our El Cajon, Escondido and Oceanside campuses are not affected by this renovation project.
All other San Diego Campus services (including admissions, licensing, lost and found, Community Pet Pantry and more) will remain available at their usual locations. Thank you for your patience and we hope to see you soon!
