A No-Kill Shelter Saving Lives Everyday

Private Adoptions

The Sequoia Humane Society (SHS) aims to help find permanent, loving homes for all adoptable animals.  Due to space limitations, we cannot admit every animal looking for a new home into our shelter.  We have therefore reserved a space on our website to help pet owners distribute information about animals they need to rehome.  All cats and dogs posted for private adoption must be spayed/neutered.  In order to post a private adoption, we need a statement granting SHS permission to post your contact information on our website and Facebook.  We also suggest that you sign up for the Friends for Life Animal Rescue "Matchmaker" program, and post fliers in vet offices, pet stores and around your neighborhood.
If you are looking to rehome a pet, please send an email to [email protected]including:
