Foster Adoption

Generous donors can waive the adoption fee of an animal of their choosing as a part of our VIP (Very Important Pet) program! Make a tax-deductible donation to cover the adoption fee of special shelter pet and give a family an extra incentive to adopt them. Animals with waived fees have special notation placed on their profiles at our shelter and online. All standard adoption criteria apply.

Call (925) 256-1273 to sponsor a pet’s adoption fee.
