Adopting a fur-ever friend is a very special task.
You are saving the life of the animal that you are welcoming into you're home.
You are giving room to the shelter or rescue to take in another animal in need.
You are reducing the demand that keeps puppy and kitten mills in business.
Sadly, animal mills and breeding facilities are more common than many people realize.
Millions of unwanted animals enter shelters across America each year.
Every year, more than 3 million cats and dogs are euthanized due to overpopulation. Adoption helps break this vicious cycle and put an end to the animal mill industry. Don't shop, adopt!
How to Adopt
If you are interested in adopting a furry friend from the SPCA of the Triad, please fill out an adoption application. It is imperative that you spend some time together to see if you may be a good fit for each other. Animals have unique personalities just as humans do. We wouldn't adopt a child without meeting that child first.
A pet is fur-ever family, and a part of your family.
Make sure that your chosen match will be a good fit for your home and your lifestyle.
We take adoptions very seriously at the SPCA of The Triad. Each application must be filled out in it's entirety. We will require a vet history for previous animals, however we welcome hearing about the history as well. If you have other dogs, they should be on heartworm preventative.
We are thorough in our Application Check.
Please allow up to 5 business days for your application to be processed.
