Question: Where can I see all the wonderful animals you have available for adoption?

PLEASE NOTE: No appointment required to adopt one of our beautiful Cats or Kittens. Appointments are required to meet a dog at our shelter. We do not allow "walk throughs" in our dog kennels due to the  anxiety and stress that it causes our dogs. So if you are interested in meeting one (or two, or three!) please email us at southcoasthumane@gmail.com to ensure the one you're interested in is still available. We'll setup a time to bring them out to meet you in our lobby or our grass front yard so that you can meet them one on one without distraction! 

At South Coast Humane we are passionate about finding every animal a loving forever home. Adopting or fostering an animal has so many rewards! Not only are you saving a life, you're helping us make room to save another animal. We like to say that our pets rescue humans! So many people have healed their hearts and improved their lives through pet adoption. Matching hearts with animals is what we do! 

All animals placed for adoption will be spayed/neutered, micro-chipped (dogs), vaccinated, flea treated, de-wormed, and given a health examination. We sometimes have special needs animals that may take a little more care, but are still able to go to loving homes.

 

It's important to understand the care, financial, and time commitment it takes to adopt an animal. Our adoption and foster screening process helps ensure all animals are placed in an environment where they can thrive and be happy. We offer "sleep-overs" so you can take the animal home for a day or two to make sure all will work out well, and we welcome those who can foster an animal until a loving home can be found. In all cases, rest assured we will always welcome them back if needed.

Save time at the shelter by downloading and completing your application before coming in!

 

​Adoption Fee Schedule

 

Please note: A deposit equal to the adoption fee applies for all animals not yet spayed or neutered. Once approved, you still get to take your pet home right away, but will be required to bring them back to be spayed or neutered, or provide proof of spay/neutering. Your deposit will be refunded to you once their spay/neuter is complete.
