General Adoption Information

  • You must be 18 years of age or older to adopt and provide a valid (non-expired) photo ID.

  • HSSC Reserves the right to deny an adoption application without explanation.

  • HSSC does not refund adoption fees.

  • Adoptions fees are due at the time an Adoption Contract is signed.

  • HSSC does not make payment arrangements for adoptions.


HSSC offers dogs,cats,and rabbits that are spay/neuter through our Adoptions Program.These animals are primarily rescued from  animal shelters within Stanislaus County where they would otherwise be euthanized or they come through our Community Re-homing Assistance program.

Animals can be a costly venture (just as having a child is).  Therefore it is vital that you consider the financial impact of becoming a pet parent.  HSSC recommends that you consider purchasing a pet health insurance package, we can provide you with more information at the time of adoption.

Animals available for adoption have been evaluated on their known behavior history, as well as health and temperament.  HSSC keeps all animals in its custody until they are adopted.  Exceptions to this rule are as follows:

  • An animal who becomes unusually aggressive towards humans or other animals.

  • A medical condition exists, as diagnosed by a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, that would cause great suffering or loss of quality of life to the animal.

  • An animal is transferred to another agency for better opportunity for adoption.


All of our animals have been:

  • Spayed/Neutered

  • Dewormed

  • Micro-chipped

  • Age appropriate vaccinations (Cat - FVRCP, rabies; Dogs - DHPP, Bordetella, rabies, starting February 2018* flu vaccines)

  • Cats have been Combo tested for FELV/FIV (starting December 2017*)

  • Flea treated

The adopter is required to continue with vaccinations, at their own expense, after adoption.
