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.
Because adoptions are not considered an essential service for purposes of the Governor’s Order, we are asking the one million residents in the cities we serve to come together and help us by opening your hearts and homes to animals currently in our shelter. We need people who are able and willing to “Foster to Hold” which means you will care for an animal until this crisis passes and return the animal to the shelter once we are able to resume normal operations; or “Foster to Adopt” which means you want to adopt a specific animal with spay/neuter surgeries commencing once IVHS is back to normal operations.
For those wishing to “Foster to Hold” or “Foster to Adopt”, please to view all available animals at the shelter and then complete a this application. A staff member will work with potential foster families to deliver animals to residents in order to comply with the ‘Stay at Home’ Order.
Because animals are adopted every day, the one you may be interested in may or may not be available when you visit the shelter, so please keep that in mind. This gallery is updated on a daily basis in order to keep it current with new arrivals.
Please be advised that some of these pets may be new to I.V.H.S. and not available for adoption yet. If you find a pet that you are interested in, please feel free to contact us. Available dates are for the general public and rescue dates are for our rescue partners. If you are missing a pet and believe your pet is in our care after viewing our pets online, please email email@example.com.
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 visiting the link below before contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 the PetSmart at the The Heights at West Covina, 2350 S Azusa Ave, West Covina, CA 91792, Petco in San Dimas located at 822 W Arrow Hwy, San Dimas, CA 91773, PetSmart in Ontario located at 4120 E 4th St, Ontario, CA 91764 & PetSmart in Chino located at 11945 Central Ave, Chino, CA 91710 to help find them new homes.
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. Click here to email our adoption center if you would like to “Foster to Hold” or “Foster to Adopt” a specific pet.
Our Adoption Center is Conducting “Foster to Adopt” and “Foster to Hold” ONLINE ONLY as our shelter is closed to the public.
We are currently closed to the public and conducting adoptions/fostering ONLINE ONLY.
- After an application is submitted, an Adoptions Counselor will be reaching out to you on how to proceed.
- An application can be submitted online after you have found a pet you may want to adopt from our available pets. You can fill out the application below and an Adoptions Counselor will reach out to you.
- Allow extra time for the foster/adoption 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. Our Adoption Counselors are working to respond to every application as quickly as possible.
- 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.
- Be aware that more than one person may be interested in the same pet. In these cases, there will be a drawing for all approved applications at 10 AM in-house on the day the pet becomes available for adoption. This ensures fairness to all approved, interested parties. Our Adoption Counselors will inform you if there will be a drawing for the pet you are interested in.
- When dropping off a pet to your home, our staff will stay to socialize the pet with any children or other pets st the residence to make sure 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. I.V.H.S. is trying to make sure both the new pet and the new owners are compatible.
- If a dog or cat is not spayed/neutered when you begin fostering, they will be fixed once we resume normal operations before you officially adopt.
A “Foster to Hold”/”Foster to Adopt” application is required before any foster can take place. You can fill and submit one online after you have found a pet you may want to foster or adopt, as this process is temporarily online only. An Adoptions Counselor will reach out to you to coordinate drop-off of the pet.
