Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal Training, Animals, Veterinary Services

Mission: The mission of the San Francisco SPCA is to save and protect animals, to provide care and treatment, to advocate for their welfare and to enhance the human-animal bond.

Results: The numbers have been crunched, and in 2014 the live release rate for the entire city of San Francisco reached 91 percent for the second year in a row! No other major city has ever saved more than 90 percent of its homeless animals, and it's a goal that San Francisco has been working toward for many years. As one of the most progressively humane cities in the world, we're once again paving the way for other areas to achieve similar lifesaving results. Learn about our latest work by visiting www.sfspca.org/who-we-are/results-stats

Target demographics: The San Francisco community and animals in need

Geographic areas served: San Francisco

Programs: Each year, thousands of animals find news homes through the SF SPCA Adoption Centers. The SF SPCA also saves thousands of dogs and cats that require medical treatment, foster care or training before they are ready for adoption. To make visiting even more convenient we now have two locations, in the Mission and Pacific Heights. SF SPCA programs and services include: Veterinary Hospital and Spay/Neuter Clinic, Adoption Center, Animal Assisted Therapy, Humane Education, Behavior & Training, Community Outreach, and Community Cats.

There's a reason why this place gets a 5-star rating.

I've been a loyal member and volunteer for over a decade. I'm a member of the Legacy Society, with the SPCA in my will. I am also a member of the SIDO program, protecting the health and well being of my beloved Layla, should i pass before her (she's 5, btw).

All four of mine are and were rescues, thanks to my beloved SF-SPCA. This photo represents my current, Layla, looking up to the gods, thanking them for being rescued.

We adopted our doggie from the SPCA and the entire process was fantastic. We've had him now for 3 years and our lives have never been the same!

I've interacted with several folks from and at the SF SPCA, and have been very impressed with the way they see their mission and their role in the community. From adoption services, to the hospital, to their call center, it's clear they have a broad view of their objectives and know how to get things done.
