1. Meet Our Cats & Dogs
You can preview our adorable adoptables on our website, Petfinder.com or Adopt-a-Pet.com, or visit our cats and dogs in person at the Coronado Animal Care Facility (ACF).
2. Complete an Application
We have two ways to complete an adoption application:
- Complete an online dog adoption application or cat adoption application.
- Complete an application in person at the Coronado Animal Care Facility.
Applications are considered in the order they are received. Please note that the ACF staff is not aware of all applications submitted, so they will not be able to answer questions relating to all applications on file for an animal.
3. Adoption Interview
Cat and dog adoption counselors will review your application and will help to decide if the animal which interests you is a good match for your lifestyle. If necessary, the counselor will direct you to any other pets that may be appropriate. If you do not find a new animal companion, your application will be kept on file for three months.
For cat adoptions, an application and interview are required.
For dog adoptions, an application, interview and home visit are required. In addition, if you currently own a dog, we require your dog to be spayed/neutered. Your spayed/neutered dog will need to come meet the dog that you wish to adopt so we can determine if they are compatible.
