Adoptable Pets

Thank you for opening your heart to a pet rescued by your local, independent SPCA Monterey County! Our Adoption Center is open daily from 11 am to 5 pm. To adopt a dog, cat, puppy, kitten, or small pet we strongly encourage you to make an Adoption Hold to ensure the pet will be waiting to meet you when you arrive. Our shelter is open to meet a pet without an Adoption Hold, however you may need to wait for an adoption time to become available.

Whether you’re hoping to adopt a kitten, puppy, cat, dog, horse, parrot, exotic pet, rabbit, hamster, or any type of pet, you’ll find the next love of your life at your local, independent SPCA for Monterey County.

A Note About Breeds: We don't DNA test the pets in our care. We assign breeds based on looks, size, behaviors and, when possible, information from previous owners. While this isn't a perfect science (genetics can certainly be surprising sometimes!), it can help guide adopters to a pet that fits their family and lifestyle. 


Our comfortable, compassionate Adoption Center is a safe haven for pets while they wait for their new homes. This quiet, happy place showcases cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, rabbits, and other small pets that you can adopt into your heart and home. While here, you can drive past barn animals you can adopt, such as horses, goats, pigs, donkeys, chickens, or roosters. You can also ask about our Wildlife Center, which rescues injured and orphaned wild animals and provides shelter for adoptable exotic pets.
