Thank you for making the commitment to adopt an animal and give him or her loving, permanent home.
The Yolo County SPCA is a foster-home based animal rescue organization, and does not have a shelter facility for you to visit.
By housing the animals in people’s homes, the Yolo County SPCA is able to ascertain their individual personalities, needs and behaviors. This helps us to match the right companion animal with the right adoptive home.
If you are interested in meeting one of our adoptable cats please submit an application.
Interviews for our adoptable cats are conducted by a volunteer adoption counselor after review of the applications for the cat. Interviews may not be done on a first-come, first serve basis. Our focus is making the best match between our adoptable animals and the prospective adopters and not simply completing an adoption. If we feel the cat you are applying for is the best match for your family one of our adoption coordinators will contact you to set up a meeting.
If you are filling out an application at one of our adoption events, your application will be forwarded to the adoption committee for review. We cannot guarantee an interview the same day you submit an application at one or our events.
Please remember that a pet is a family member and therefore, all members of the family need to be in agreement about when to adopt a pet and which pet to adopt.
In order to be seriously considered as an adopter, you must:
Be 18 years of age or older
Have current identification showing your age and present address
Be willing and able to provide loving attention, medical care, and lifetime stability for a cat
Participate in an interview & pay our service fees
Understand that the Yolo County SPCA reserves the right to deny any adoption application
