ADOPT A DOG

When you adopt a dog, you save a life.

Please have a look at all the amazing dogs we have for adoption in our centers and our foster program. If you would like more information on a pet found here please fill out an adoption application (filling this out does not secure an adoption) and a member of our adoption team will reach out. Be sure to include the pet’s name and ID# in the subject line. In the email please include your phone number and email address and someone will contact you as soon as possible. (Please allow 24 hours for return contact)

Take a look at our SAPA! Urgents and Adoptables Facebook page for dogs in immediate need of foster or adoption.

To see what each adoption requires and includes, please visit our Adopt page.

Adoption Application Disclaimer:  Filling out the adoption application does NOT guarantee a hold or confirmation of adoption on the pet you applied for.  All applications are reviewed and must be accepted by our trained counselors before a pet is adopted.  Please allow 24-48 hours for our adoption team to contact you in regards to your application.

Houston is about 5 years old and 61 pounds, already neutered, and ready to be adopted! He does not mind cats and he seems to really love dogs. They chase each other in the yard and Houston puts up well with their energy. Houston is still quite shy around people, and will likely take quite a while to open up fully. He is a little more curious when there are other dogs around and would do best in a home with other dogs to show him around. He will let you pet him or pick him up if needed, but he is still nervous about being touched. He hasn't been around kids, so he would need gentle understanding children. He will *not* walk on the leash yet, so he would need a home with a yard so he can go outside to go potty. He is potty trained and crate trained, and is very quiet when left by himself. All in all he is a pretty low-maintenance dog. He just needs a quiet place and patient people to help him open up.
