Thank you for your interest in adopting! We do NOT place holds on cats for any reason. 

New Covid-19 Protocols: While our shelter is not currently open to casual public visits, we have moved our available cats to PetSmart in Santa Maria. We ask that you visit them at their location located on Bradley Road and fill out an application right in the store. Adoption fees at PetSmart are CASH only.

During this challenging time, SYVHS/DAWG has maintained pet adoptions through an appointment-based system that allows us to limit foot traffic throughout our buildings and maintain social distance guidelines. Our staff are on location every single day caring for the remaining animals in our care and assisting callers with directing animal intake and advising on adoptions. We are committed to continuing to support our community in every way possible.

Once you fill out the application below, please email it to us at
