Notice: Pet adoptions are currently closed.

Our mission is to foster a responsible and harmonious relationship between people, pets, and wildlife in our community. By providing comprehensive care, including veterinary services, nutrition, and shelter, we ensure the well-being of animals in our Parks while enforcing cruelty prevention policies and prioritizing wildlife conservation. We educate the public on responsible pet ownership, wildlife safety, and local ecosystems, and implement programs for wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. Additionally, we facilitate the adoption of rescued animals to the residents of San Andreas.

Laws outlining animal welfare can be found in Section 9 of H.R. 324 – The Wildlife and Environmental Protection Act. In addition, our internal policies for pet adoptions can be found outlined below.

How to Adopt a Pet

Notice: Pet adoptions are currently closed.

We will accept applications as soon as more animals become available. Please be aware that not all applicants will be successful, as placements are determined on a first-come, first-served basis.

Step 1

Apply for animal via the pet adoption application and a background check is conducted by SAPD.

Please see our pet adoption policies below for more detailed information.

Step 2

If you pass the background check, a member of SAPD will contact you via government email to arrange a premises check for the property you want to house your animal.

We may also organise a meeting with your preferred animal to make sure it’s a perfect match!

Step 3

If you pass the background check and the premises check then we will ask you to sign a pet adoption agreement.

Once this has been signed then arrangements will be made with our team at PAW farm to bring your new animal down to you!
