Dedicated to connecting pets and people!

Shelter Hope Pet Shop was created to aid shelter pet adoptions, promote education and bring awareness to the communities we serve. We are the first and only volunteer humane pet shop partnering with companies, such as NewMark Merrill, who donate store front space in busy shopping locations in order to assist us with community outreach and shelter pet adoptions. Shelter Hope Pet Shop is a unique, large scale business model, which aims to eliminate puppy mill pet shops in our malls across the nation.

Shelter Hope Pet Shop provides a fun, friendly place where visitors and volunteers can meet and interact with animals needing adoption. You can also visit Shelter Hope Pet Shop for pet merchandise and know your dollars are going directly back to help save the lives of homeless pets.

We are a non-profit volunteer-based pet shop that showcases shelter animals available for in-store adoption.

Shelter Hope Pet Shop Sacramento (SHPS Sac) is a not-for-profit, charitable, volunteer-based organization devoted to: aiding in and facilitating shelter and rescue pet adoptions; promoting education and awareness within the communities we serve; and making a positive impact in the lives of shelter and rescue animals and their adopters, as well as local shelters.

Located in a shopping center storefront, SHPS Sac provides a fun, friendly place where visitors and volunteers can meet and interact with shelter or rescue animals needing adoption. This retail environment provides a pleasant setting where we can introduce shelter and rescue pets to adopters who may never consider visiting a shelter.

SHPS Sac takes pride in operating with honesty and integrity, and through open communication. We maintain exceptional customer, community, and shelter/rescue relationships. We provide a satisfying, enjoyable, and positive organization for our volunteers to be a part of.
