The Sacramento County Animal Shelter located on Bradshaw Road in Sacramento offers pet adoptions Wednesday through Sunday. As of March 2015, the shelter has dogs, cats and rabbits available for adoption.
The shelter requires the potential adopter to complete a "Meet Your Match" survey to start the adoption process. The adopter may then visit the animals in the shelter to get acquainted with potential pets. The shelter has information packets available to ensure that the animal is the right size, breed and temperament for the adopter. If the animal is already altered, the adopter may take the pet home immediately. Unaltered pets are spayed or neutered before they leave the shelter. Anyone from the United States may adopt a pet from the Sacramento County Animal Shelter.
