Adoption Policy and Procedures:

All animals adopted from the SPCA come with a free Veterinarian check-up from a participating Vet to be used within 7 days of the adoption. The list of Vets can be found in your adoption packet. This free Veterinarian exam does not cover a fecal exam or blood work or any tests/procedures. It's simply an examination. If for any reason within the first 30 days of your adoption you think your newly adopted animal is sick (based on your observation or your Veterinarian's findings) please call our SPCA Simpson Clinic immediately to set up an appointment at (914) 941-2896 ext. 20. If something pre-existing is found during your appointment at our SPCA Clinic, we will cover the cost of the exam free of charge, including any medication needed. We will not however reimburse for outside tests, exams, medications or procedures at a different Veterinarian.

If for some reason your newly adopted animal is not the best match for you we require that the animal is returned to the SPCA. We do ask that you call in advance to give us notice. There may be a turn-in fee of $50 for a kitten/cat and $100 for a puppy/dog that you are returning if it is AFTER 30 days since the adoption date. If you return an animal to the SPCA within 30 days of your adoption we will give you a credit for a new animal which must be used within 60 days of the date of the return. We also have a trainer who can be reached at Trainer@spca914.org who may be able to assist you before making the decision to return the animal. We do not reimburse adoption fees (even if an animal is returned the next day) UNLESS within 48 hours of the adoption, upon examination by a Veterinarian, the animal is determined to be in poor health and the SPCA if notified within that time frame and the animal returned.

We are open 7 days a week. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Saturday and Sunday's 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. No Appointment is necessary to meet/adopt an animal unless noted otherwise on our petfinder page.
