Pet Adoption Policies

Thank you for considering adopting a pet from one of the San Bernardino County Animal Shelters. All pet adopters must:

  • Be 18 years old and have a valid photo ID 
  • Meet any requirements for the specific pet you are interested in adopting
  • Understand that we reserve the right to deny the adoption of any pet for any reason

Animal shelter staff can answer any questions and concerns that you may have and help you find the perfect match for you and your family’s lifestyle. If you will be adopting an animal as a playmate for your current pet, you are encouraged to bring your pet with you to the shelter when you adopt your new pet so that they can be introduced at the shelter in a designated area (neutral territory).
