Adoption Interest Holds
Thank you for your interest in pet adoption!
Members of the public who are interested in adopting a pet that is not yet available to take home may place an adoption interest hold on an animal by filling out the Adoption Interest form at the SPCA of Northern Nevada’s Adoption Center.
An adoption hold must be placed in person. We cannot place an adoption interest hold on an animal via a phone call, email, or other means of electronic communication.
Only one Adoption Interest name will be placed per animal.
Adoption Interest requests are processed on a first-come basis. We do not take more than one adoption interest.
No adoption guarantee is expressed or implied.
If you are called about adopting the animal when the animal is cleared for adoption, you will need to return to the shelter to complete the adoption paperwork that same day. Standard adoption criteria and fees apply.
If the animal is too young to be altered it will need to go out to foster. If this is the case please be aware that the person who fosters the animal will have first choice of adopting.
