The best way to adopt the right dog or cat.


Meet Your Match(tm) Every time you adopt a pet from the Peninsula SPCA, you enable us to save the life of another orphaned animal in great need, and finding a great companion has never been easier!

By completing this fun Adopter Survey we will gather information about your expectations for your new Cat or Dog which will help us determine which animals might best suit your lifestyle, wants and needs.  When you are finished, you can choose to receive an e-mail invitation to visit the Peninsula SPCA that includes color-coded survey results that will guide you to the Dog or Cat that is your best match.

Please note that the survey has no wrong answers, so please answer it as honestly and completely as possible.  This will help our adoption staff unite you with a new pet that is the best fit.

Click on the cat image to the left to begin the Cat Adopter Survey.  It's based on the Feline-ality™ Adoption Program which is built on the Feline-ality™ Assessment that reliably predicts how an individual cat we have for adoption is likely to behave when he or she arrives at your home.  In addition, this Meet Your Match® Cat Adopter Survey identifies your preferences, expectations, and lifestyle so that you can look for a new pet cat with “Feline-alities” known to be a good fit for your household.

For 50 years, the Peninsula SPCA has worked tirelessly to help abandoned and neglected animals on the Peninsula find new beginnings. We were established in 1962 and are located on J. Clyde Morris Blvd in Newport News, Virginia. Peninsula SPCA is the sole provider for homeless animals on the Peninsula including Newport News, Hampton, York, and Poquoson municipalities.

We opened our first private clinic summer of 2007. The primary purpose of the clinic was to ensure that every animal adopted from the Peninsula SPCA was neutered prior to adoption. This commitment to prevention is vital to stemming the tide of homeless animals on the Peninsula.
