Adopt with SNIPSA and bring a new family member home!

How it Works

image description

If you are looking to add a wonderful pet to your family, you have come to the right place. Please view the dogs we have available for adoption below. We ask everyone to complete an Adoption Application and to agree to the terms set out in our Adoption Contract. In an effort to maintain proper social distancing measures, we have made our Adoption Contract and Spay/Neuter Contract available online.

Fees vary depending on the type of pet you would like to adopt. Puppies start at $300, adult dogs start at $250, and cats start at $150.

*Please note: Animals that have received additional non-routine medical treatment have a higher adoption fee.

All applications are reviewed in the order they are received, and, sometime we are on a waiting list for certain animals. Once we have received your application and it is approved, you will be contacted by our adoption coordinator within 48-72 hours. We will then have the foster family contact you to discuss the next steps of meeting with your potential new family member.

Our Adoptables

Our adoptable animals come from a variety of situations. Many are strays so we don't always know their background or the situation they came from. SNIPSA puts all efforts to conduct a full behavioral evaluation, as well as health assessment.

Is Adopting a Pet Right for You?

Before adopting a pet, please make sure that it is the right pet for you and your family and that you are willing to make the commitment to take care of this animal for the rest of its life.

Watch Episode 1 - "CeCe's Cystotomy" on our new IGTV medical series.

We all take for granted being able to “pee” especially when you have a golf ball size crunchy stone in your bladder. Poor Cece was taken into our adoption program only to discover she was urinating blood, and lots of it. An ultrasound revealed a large bladder stone - so she was placed on antibiotics and scheduled for surgery. She is finally on the road to recovery but it will take months for her bladder to “quiet” down. We would appreciate any dollars you can send her way to help with the unforeseen medical expenses!
