You Can’t Buy Love. But You Can Adopt It.
To our supporters: Like all of you, we are taking every step necessary to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Along with following the Center of Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines on how to prevent the spread of the virus, we urge all of our supporters to adhere to these guidelines as well.
If you wish to Adopt…
We offer Pet Adoption or Foster-to-Hold (fostering one of our long-term available pets in the comfort of your home until they can find a permanent family). All Adoptions/Fosters will now be handled in-person. We invite anyone interested in adopting/fostering a pet, to click the link below to view the animals currently in our care. You can also see additional pets available for adoption in our community via Home To Home™, an IVHS animal re-homing partner (click the Home To Home™ tab below to learn more).
We have switched to a hybrid adoption system.
Appointments are available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday: 9:00am – Noon and Wednesday: Appointments 9:30am-1:30pm.
Appointments are released a week in advance. Please indicate the animal ID of the available animal. Note: An appointment DOES NOT guarantee an adoption.
As a reminder: Not all animals at the shelter are available for adoption. Many have recently been rescued and are on hold awaiting reunification with their owner and or may be under protective custody. Please inquire with a Staff member regarding the animal you are interested in.
If you do not have a specific animal in mind, please come in during our walk in hours, Monday – Saturday from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM and Wednesday from 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM.
If you wish to Foster a shelter pet…
If you are interested in fostering a pet that qualifies for our Foster-to-Hold program, complete a Foster-to-Hold Application. Pets that fall in this category are pets that have been in our care longer than 2 weeks.
Because animals are adopted every day on a first come, first serve basis, the one you may be interested in may or may not be available upon your arrival. This gallery is updated regularly in order to keep it current with new arrivals and adopted or redeemed pets. We encourage our community to consider fostering a pet they find, so that we can maintain room at the shelter for animals in need. If you choose to foster a found pet, an IVHS officer will come photograph the pet to add them to our Available Pets Page.
As a reminder: Not all animals at the shelter are available for adoption. Many have recently been rescued and are on hold awaiting reunification with their owner and or may be under protective custody. If you find a pet that you are interested in, please be aware that we do not place holds on pets. All adoptions are handled on a first come, first serve basis. Available dates are for the general public. If you are missing a pet and believe your pet is in our care after viewing our pets online, please fill out this form.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL PETS IN OUR CARE ARE CURRENTLY PHOTOGRAPHED AND POSTED ON OUR WEBSITE. If you are missing your pet, please see if your pet is in our care by clicking “VIEW PETS” above. If your pet is in our care, click below to redeem your pet.
Did you know that the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. has remote adoption centers for cats? Not only do we take our pups to adoption fairs throughout the cities we serve, but our cats have taken up residence at:
Petco in San Dimas located at 822 W Arrow Hwy, San Dimas, CA 91773
PetSmart at the The Heights at West Covina, 2350 S Azusa Ave, West Covina, CA 91792
PetSmart in Ontario located at 4120 E 4th St, Ontario, CA 91764
PetSmart in Chino located at 11945 Central Ave, Chino, CA 91710
PetSmart in Chino Hills located at 13001 Peyton Dr, Chino Hills, CA 91709
The Inland Valley Humane Society’s mission is to place all adoptable animals into permanent, loving homes. Here are a few simple but necessary steps to adopt a pet at the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A.
Our Adoption Center is Now Conducting In-Person Adoptions/Foster-to-Hold.
- Our Adoption Department will be accepting in-person applications ONLY.
- Anyone looking to walk through our kennels must be escorted through by a member of IVHS Staff. We ask that you DO NOT touch any of the animals while walking through. This is for both safety and disease prevention.
- If you would like to visit our kennels, please be prepared to wait outside for an extended period of time until an available Staff member can assist you. FOR SAFETY & SECURITY PURPOSES, WE ASK THAT VISITORS NOT LINE UP PRIOR TO 6:00AM. PUBLIC RESTROOMS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE PRIOR TO 8:00AM.
- Please allow extra time for the adoption/foster-to-hold process. This is a ‘Companion for Life’ and should not be taken lightly. Every precaution is being taken to help you make the right choice for your new family member.
- A health exam by our staff veterinarian is required before any adoption is approved. All approved adoptions are considered healthy with no visible signs of illness at the time of adoption unless stated otherwise.
- All adoptions will be handled on a first come, first serve basis.
- Masks are required for all visitors, regardless of vaccination status.
- When meeting your potential pet, please be sure to bring all children under the age 10 and your current dogs to socialize with the pet so we can ensure everyone gets along. Please make sure your pet at home is current on all vaccinations.
- Be aware that adoptions can be denied for various reasons. IVHS is trying to make sure both the new pet and the new owners are compatible.
- If for some reason a pet must be returned, please contact your Adoption Counselor within 30 days of adoption to discuss adoption return.
We will no longer be accepting online Adoption Applications. If you are interested in adopting an animal in our care, please click on the link below to download, print and complete an application. This does not guarantee the adoption.
Find a pet that needs a new home with Home To Home™
Home To Home™ is a unique, direct-to-adopter tool for pet guardians looking to re-home their animals. By keeping pets out of the shelter, this program allows pets to transition straight from one home to another.
Home To Home™ is free to use for both guardians and adopters, and gives animals needing a new home the best of both worlds: their current guardian can find the best fit, and their adopter can learn all about their personality and preferences first-hand, by directly speaking to the current pet owner. It’s a win-win for all!
When you adopt a pet from Home To Home™ you are helping the IVHS & S.P.C.A. and all pets great and small. When it’s possible for a pet to avoid being surrendered to the shelter, it helps reduce overcrowding and allows more resources to be available to help those animals that have no other option.
To learn more, click the button above.
Breed or sex does not make a difference in the adoption fees. Please view the column on the right for a breakdown of what is included with the adoption fee.
- Monthly Promotional Fees Vary
- Active military personnel and veterans receive a waived adoption fee with the Pets for Vets Act.
- Senior for Senior 8 years and older: 50% OFF
- The adoption fee for miscellaneous animals, such as rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens and other animals, such as livestock, varies.
Adoption Fees are subject to change at any time without notice.
The Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. currently works with numerous Adoption Partners across the United States in an effort to place adoptable animals that have often been overlooked. If there is an animal you are interested in, please contact us. To ensure your inquiry is addressed you must email us at email@example.com.
The purpose of our Adoption Partner protocol is to ensure a successful working relationship between the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. and your 501(c)3 rescue organization.
Our goals are the same; to find quality homes for the animals in our care. We value our Adoption Partners and are committed to working with our local rescue community to inspire and engage the community to end animal abandonment. We welcome rescue inquiries and invite your organization to contact us for more information about our Adoption Partner program and benefits.

Send completed applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow 48 business hours for a response.
