Adopt a Pet from the ASPCA

Thank you for your interest in adopting from the ASPCA Adoption Center! Please take a look at our adoptable dogs and cats below, and if you’re interested in adopting, complete an adoption survey for that pet. If our team determines that you and the pet you’ve applied for are a good match, you’ll hear from us with more information about our adoption process—which may take up to a week. Please wait to visit the Adoption Center in-person until you’ve heard from our team, as we operate by appointment.

Our Los Angeles adoption program is entirely foster-based and currently offering remote adoptions.
