Adoptions Requirements

We invite you to fall in love with one of our animals! As you consider a pet adoption, please be aware of the following:

  • Adopters must be at least 18 years old and present valid photo ID.
  • Some adoptions require attendance of a training class.
  • We may require all household members to meet the new pet prior to adoption.
  • If you have a dog and want to adopt another, we ask that you leave your resident dog at home for the initial greeting. Once you've decided that you've met your match we will schedule an introduction between the dogs.
  • Animals and people are all unique. We will make every effort to help you find the companion animal who
    is most appropriate for your lifestyle. If we cannot find the right match, we reserve the right not to
    complete an adoption.

Do you or someone you know live or work at a ranch, vineyard, farm, warehouse or barn / workshop?

Country cats represent a portion of the feline population that thrive on free-range living rather than bunking down for the night in a typical home.  Like any other domesticated animal, they still need warm shelter, food and water.

Our country cats program ensures that these free-spirited felines receive a safe, warm living environment. Their health exams, vaccinations, microchips and spay/neuters are all done. In return, you’ll have a forever pal (or two) who’ll play sensible sentry with you 24/7.

Have a Warm Lap to Spare?

For many years, the Sonoma Humane Society Foster Care Program has offered care and support for homeless animals at the beginning of life’s journey. Hospice care for homeless animals toward the end of their lives is just a natural extension of the program’s services. While it can be emotionally challenging to take home an animal with medical needs, the companionship and love that you receive in return is beyond measure.

A Fospice animal is a shelter pet with a good quality of life but with a medical condition that is life-limiting and makes traditional adoption challenging. Older cats make up the majority of our Fospice patients. If you're interested in learning more about what it takes to become a Fospice parent, we welcome you to email us at
