Meet the Animals
and an Adoption Counselor
Once you’ve selected an animal (or two!) that you’re interested in adopting, you can spend time getting to know them. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet with one of our Adoption Counselors, who are trained to help make the best match for you.
Complete the Adoption
When you’ve found a great match, it’s time to complete the adoption process! You’ll have the opportunity to ask the Adoption Counselors questions about training and get tips on helping your new pet adjust to your home. If you’d like, we also offer the service of introducing your new dog to your current dog(s).
If the animal you are interested in has any medical or behavioral conditions,
we will also arrange a pre-adoption consultation with one of our veterinarians or trainers.
All adoption fees collected assist in the daily care and ongoing needs of each animal admitted to San Diego Humane Society. Adoption gift certificates are also available for purchase.
Depending on the type of animal, fees may include spay/neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, waived enrollment fee for medical insurance from TruPanion, and a license if residing in Escondido, San Marcos, Poway, Oceanside, and Vista.
