ANIMAL CARE CENTER ADOPTION PROGRAM

We have many wonderful pets to adopt but know that adding a pet to your family is a big decision. All animals require training and commitment. Some pets can live well into their teens and many may have special medical needs as they get older, such as medication, frequent checkups, etc., just like people. All these things, including the joy of having a loyal friend, should be factored in before you decide to take on this responsibility.

*To adopt, you must be over 18 years old and have a government issued photo ID. 

Note: The City of San José Animal Care and Services Division reserves the right to deny adoptions in certain circumstances for cause.
