ivhs to begin utilizing hybrid adoption system

September 1, 2021, Pomona, CA – Effective September 7th, the Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA (IVHS) will switch to a hybrid adoption system which will entail both in-person adoption appointments as well as shelter visiting hours. We believe this hybrid method will provide a more streamlined process for anyone interested in adopting a new pet.

Our in-person adoption appointments will be available from 9am-12pm, Monday-Saturday. Along with these adoption appointments, we will continue to provide shelter viewing hours from 1:30pm-3:30pm on Mondays-Saturdays, with the exception of Wednesdays from 3:30pm-5:30pm. Adoption appointments will be released every Sunday and Wednesday with each appointment lasting 45 minutes.

Appointments can be accessed via a scheduling link on our website, IVHSSPCA.org. To make an appointment, potential adopters must provide the animal ID of the available animal they are interested in. Animals that are not yet available for adoption will not be shown to adopters. Similarly, our kennels will not be accessible at this time, so potential adopters will not be able to walk through the kennels. Our adoption counselors will work with adopters to find the best match. No appointment is necessary for viewing hours.

Along with adoption appointments, we will continue to offer “Foster to Adopt” for those interested in opening their home to a pet temporarily.

The Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. will continue to assist the community in finding their perfect furry friend while ensuring health and safety protocols are met by all staff and shelter visitors. To see a comprehensive list of IVHS’ temporarily adjusted operations, visit here.
