Adopt A Cat

Beginning March 17, 2020 our Adoption Center will be closed until further notice. However, we will still be allowing adoptions by appointment for approved applicants. We are dedicated to the welfare of our staff, shelter animals, and community and appreciate your continued support during these unprecedented times.

How To Adopt While the Adoption Center is Closed

  1. View our adoptable pets on our website and Facebook page: http://humanesocietystjc.org/adopt/ & https://www.facebook.com/HSSJC/
  2. Apply to adopt on our website and indicate which animal(s) you are interested in when prompted on the online application: http://humanesocietystjc.org/adopt/apply-to-adopt/
  3. Wait patiently as a Humane Society staff member processes your adoption application. This usually takes 24/48 hours. We will call you and set up a specific time for you to visit the shelter and meet the animal(s) you are interested in.
  4. At the appointment time you’ll be able to meet our adoptable pets. If it’s a match, you’ll take your new adoptable pet home the same day!

Please note if you or a family member are sick or have been exposed to someone who is ill, we ask that you do not visit the shelter and wait to adopt until everyone in your home is well.
