THE ADOPTION PROCESS
SEAACA’s Care Center is closed to members of the public. Modifications in operations have been implemented to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). SEAACA continues to facilitate Adoptions and Animal Claims by appointment only. Adoption holds can be placed over the phone by calling 562-803-3301 Tuesday – Friday 11:00 am – 5:00 pm and Saturday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.
Adding a new member to your family by adopting a pet from SEAACA's Animal Care Center is an exciting time. Adopting a pet is a 'Companion for Life' and should not be taken lightly. We at SEAACA want to work with you to help you make the right choice for your new family member.
An approved adoption application is required along with a proper identification before any adoption can take place. Several forms, including the application will be given to you to complete after you have found a pet you may want to adopt.
Allow extra time for the adoption process. A short interview with the adoption counselor may be required before any adoption is approved.
There are times that adoptions are denied for various reasons. SEAACA tries to ensure both the new pet and the new owners are compatible.
SEAACA's adoption fees for dogs and cats include spaying and neutering (8 weeks & up), vaccination and permanent-ID microchip. Rabbits are also spayed or neutered for their well-being and best behavior.
