Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of endearing dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Sacramento.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)


Nala, German shepherd mix

Nala is an adorable female German shepherd mix currently housed at Sacramento SPCA.

Nala has already been spayed.

From Nala's current caretaker:

Nala is 7 years old. She is a beautiful and mellow lady who is looking for her forever family. You may notice that Nala is a little bit unique - she has bald spots because of a skin condition. She has been improving with leaps and bounds after we started her on treatment and is already starting to look so much better. She was an outdoor-only dog at her last home but is ready to pampered and would love to be right by your side giving you kisses.

Shaggy, Havanese mix

Shaggy is a charming male Havanese mix staying at Sacramento SPCA.

Shaggy has had all his shots.

Notes from Shaggy's caretakers:

Shaggy is 10 years old. Shaggy's name is incredibly fitting! With his crazy hair sprawling about, it's impossible not to love him. Shaggy is a stray and was found roaming the streets, so we don't much information on him. We do have enough to know he would make a lovely partner for a dog-loving home. Since he's been here, he has been nothing but sweet and friendly. He is on the shy side, but whoever wins him over is a lucky human.

Bambam, American Staffordshire terrier mix

Bambam is a charming male American Staffordshire terrier mix being cared for at Sacramento SPCA.

Bambam's ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He's already been neutered.

Notes from Bambam's caretakers:

Bambam is 3 years old. He is a young dog with that puppy energy! He would require an active partner who loves going on runs or long walks every day. Bambam has an immense amount of energy and is just waiting to get out and explore the world around him. We believe this young doggie would thrive in a home where he can receive that level of activity, as well as constant interaction daily.

Rambo, pit bull terrier mix

Rambo is an adorable male pit bull terrier mix currently housed at Sacramento SPCA.

Rambo has had all his shots.

Notes from Rambo's caretakers:

Rambo is 6 years old. He is a big teddy bear—soft, cuddly and a little squishy! This BIG boy is a gentle giant who loves to be around people and will turn to mush if you give him a belly rub. He likes to snuggle up close to you and give puppy kisses. Rambo loves to play fetch and is a classic bouncy, fun-loving pittie, but he does know how to settle down and lounge, too. If you're looking for a marshmallow in dog form, Rambo could definitely be it.

Joker, pit bull terrier mix

Joker is a male pit bull terrier mix in the care of Sacramento SPCA.

Joker's ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He's already been neutered.

From Joker's current caretaker:

Joker is 2 years old. He is a relatively young pup with a whole lot of life ahead of him. He is described as shy, affectionate, fun-loving, playful and treat motivated! Joker is more of a homebody but also adores his daily walks and playing a good game of fetch. This little/big boy would prefer to be by his owner's side more than anything else to receive a whole lot of TLC.

Bambi, chihuahua mix

Bambi is a charming female chihuahua mix staying at Sacramento SPCA.

Bambi loves other dogs. She is looking for cat-free home. She's already been spayed.

Notes from Bambi's caretakers:

Bambi is 5 years old. She is a sweet little lady with a charming smile and a great personality. She can be a little shy when you first get to know her, but if you take your time getting to know her, you'll be rewarded by her loving personality. Bambi absolutely LOVES tennis balls and will run after them forever.
