About Us

Adopting A Friend

Our adoption process is both simple and straightforward, and our goal is to ensure you and your new pet are a good match for one another.


In Order to Help Us Find Your Perfect Pet, Please Come Prepared to:

  • Spend adequate time getting to know the animal.
  • Be certain pets are allowed in your home or apartment.
  • Be a responsible pet owner.
  • Bring your existing dog(s) if you are adopting another one.
  • We recommend any and all family members or other members of your household come with you
  • Be willing to give your new pet a permanent home.
  • Show your Driver’s License, California ID card, or other photo identification (you must be 18 years old).
  • Complete an Adoption Application. 
  • Be able to pay our adoption fees. Our fees can only be paid by credit card or cash. We do not accept checks.
  • Spend enough time to complete the Adoption Process. The paperwork itself takes about 15 minutes, but the adoption process could last up to 1-2 hours depending on the animal you wish to take home.


Please note: We stop processing adoptions at 5:30 pm at both Oakland and Dublin locations.

  • Spay/Neuter

Adoption Holds


A 24-hour hold can be placed on adoptable animals to allow for pet-to-pet introductions, and/or to allow other household members to meet the pet. A hold can only be placed after a member of the household has visited with the animal in person. We can not take holds over phone or email. If the hold results in an adoption, the $25.00 hold fee is applied to the adoption fee. Otherwise, the hold fee is non-refundable and treated as a donation.
