Congratulations, you have made the right choice by looking for a new companion at the Palm Springs Animal Shelter! Before you start cyber mingling with our available pets, here are a few things about us that you should know.

Here are a few things you should know: We have many dogs and cats for adoption and we occasionally receive rabbits and other small animals. You can meet our available pets online or visit them in person at the Palm Springs Animal Shelter or at one of our Mobile Adoption Events. Our adoption counselors will help you find the best pet match for your family, that’s why we ask you to fill out an adoption application. Every animal available for adoption is screened for health and temperament via full medical examinations and behavioral assessments. Our pet adoption fees include spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchip, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and a certificate for 30 days of medical insurance from Trupanion!

The Adoption Process: Browse our available pets online, visit them in person at the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, or meet them at a mobile event.

Fill out a pre-adoption form in our Adoption Center. 

Meet with an Adoption Counselor and spend time with the pet. Love at first sight is understandable, and is usually the real thing. However, we want to make sure you and the pet you’ve fallen in love with are a match that will last forever. Our Adoption Counselors are trained to help you make the best decision on what pet is right for your lifestyle.

Complete the Adoption: This is it, the home stretch! When you and your Adoption Counselor decide on a great match, you’ll have time to ask questions, get training tips, and talk about how to make the transition from shelter to your home successful.

Adoption Guarantee: If for any reason your new pet adoption doesn’t work out as planned, you need to return your pet to the Palm Springs Animal Shelter.
