Hi there, my name is Abel and I''m a charming little fellow. I''m looking forward to starting fresh with a new family to love me. Let''s go on walks so I can smell the flowers and see all of the sights in the neighborhood. I''m an easy going guy who will be your loyal companion for life. If you''re interested in petting and getting to know me, I''d be happy to meet you.
From 11/25/17 - 1/7/18 for our HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS SPECIAL, I can be adopted for only $20!

The Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority (SVACA) provides the cities of Campbell, Monte Sereno, Mountain View, and Santa Clara with the care of sick, injured, lost and abandoned companion animals, animal cruelty investigations, enforcement of animal laws, education and outreach programs, volunteer and foster programs, and so much more. We place all of our healthy and treatable animals as well as many of our unhealthy and untreatable animals from our cageless Animal Care Center which resulted in an overall live release rate of 88% in 2013. Our adoption program is open to all Bay Area residents. We're proud to be one of the Bay Area's "Best Municipal Shelters" according to Bay Woof Magazine.

Adoption, education and volunteer opportunities for all Bay Area residents
Adoption is a wonderful way to acquire an animal. Our goal is to make "perfect" matches so that our animals remain with their new guardians for the remainder of their lives. Here at SVACA we use the ASPCA’s Meet Your Match program in order to attempt to "match" prospective adopters with the best possible dog or cat. Other animals are also appropriately matched with their new guardians.
Appointments are recommended as a way to avoid long waits that are sometimes experienced at other shelters, but we do accept walk-ins on a first come, first served basis.
To expedite the process, prospective adopters should bring the following with them:
1. Photo ID: driver’s license or valid state ID
2. Proof of residency: current utility bill or lease agreement
3. Proof of ownership: mortgage statement
4. Pet policy at residence: leasing agreement with pet stipulation and/or contact information
5. All human members of the household
6. Dogs(s) as directed by SVACA staff
Please note that animals cannot be placed on hold until you have interacted with an animal during your appointment.
NOTE: Please do not bring pets to the Center unless you have been instructed to do so by SVACA staff.
Fees cover the spay or neuter of the animal, initial appropriate vaccinations, a professional health examination and behavior evaluation, microchip, temporary ID tag, and a free examination at a participating local veterinary clinic. SVACA member city residents also receive a license for their new companion. All fees are retained by SVACA and used to offset the cost of our operations; simply said, fees directly help the animals!
