THE ADOPTION PROCESS

View our available pets online and complete an adoption application for your pet(s) of interest.

Once you submit your application a member of our adoption team will call you to schedule your adoption appointment. During the appointment our adoption specialists will provide you with the pet’s details and lifestyle recommendations. We can also help you determine which of our pets would be a good match for you and your family.

All adoption fees collected assist in the daily care and ongoing needs of our animals. Every animal available for adoption has been provided a full medical examination and behavioral assessment. Our adoption fees include spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchip, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, a discount on pet insurance, and a discount at our shelter shop. We reserve the right to hold special animal adoption promotions wherein prices may be reduced or waived altogether.

ADOPTION RETURN POLICY

If for any reason your adoption doesn’t work out as planned, we encourage you to return your pet to the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. We understand these are hard decisions and we welcome the opportunity to find a different home for your pet if it is not a perfect match for you.

POLICY ON PET COSMETIC ALTERATIONS

The Palm Springs Animal Shelter’s policy is that adopters will not subject adopted pets to non-medically necessary cosmetic alterations (e.g. ear cropping, de-clawing, tail docking, de-barking).

For more information about cat de-clawing and why it is never in the cat’s best interest, please visit the Paw Project’s website.

WORKING CATS PROGRAM

Our Working Cats Program has been designed to allow less socialized cats to barter their rodent catching skills for room and board under the supervision of an understanding care giver on ranches, farms, wineries, agricultural operations, warehouses of all types as well as neighborhood backyards.
