Animal Care Center Locations
Available animals that are already spayed or neutered may be adopted that day. If an available animal has not yet been spayed or neutered, the animal care center is required to perform the surgery before the animal goes home. In most cases the surgery is performed the next day but sometimes it may take a day or two longer, particularly if there are weekends or holidays involved.
All animals adopted from one of our animal care centers are eligible for a free veterinary exam (within seven days of adoption) by any participating member of the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association.
A list of participating veterinary locations can be found here:
Our adoption fees vary, depending on how long an animal has been in our care.
If an animal has been in our care ten days or less, the adoption fee is $50. If the animal has been in our care more than ten days, the adoption fee is $30. In addition to the adoption fee, the sterilization fee for a dog is $50 and $40 for a cat and the microchip fee is $7.50 (does not include national registration). Additional charges may include fees for licensing (for those living within our service areas) or pain medication (dependent on whether the animal needed to be spayed/neutered). Please see our home page for promotions and discounts on adoption fees.
