ADOPTION HOLD PROCESS

Interested in adopting an animal not yet “available”? Here's how you can add a new member to your family. When animals are brought to the SEAACA Animal Care Center, they are held for a specific number of days to allow owners to reunite with their lost pets. Throughout the holding period time, interested residents or SEAACA Adoption Partners (refer to Adoption Partner page for information and application) may place an "adoption hold" on the animal as a potential adopter. If the owner does not claim their pet, there is an opportunity for the public to adopt that animal into their family. 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.
