Sacramento SPCA

$228,466 raised by 965 donors

The Sacramento SPCA has been providing homeless animals with individual comfort, shelter, and love for 130 years. We provide compassionate medical care to tens of thousands of animals annually and offer a variety of programs and services designed to keep people and pets together for life. We are a local, independent, non-profit organization that is not affiliated with any other SPCA or humane society, including the ASPCA. All donations to the Sacramento SPCA go to help the animals right here in our community. Financial support for our programs and services is provided solely by donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations. Through our nationally-ranked high-volume spay and neuter clinic (we are ranked as one of the top 10 clinics in the country!), adoption program, wellness and vaccine clinics and more, the Sacramento SPCA - with your support - is giving more than shelter and saving animals one life at a time.


Established in 1892, the Sacramento SPCA is dedicated to fostering a loving and compassionate community for animals and people by providing assistance, creating lifelong relationships, and saving lives.


Because we do not receive government funding, we depend on your donations to house, feed, heal and place the thousands of animals entrusted to our care.

Paws for Health Fund: One out of five animals that comes to us needs some kind of extra veterinary care before they can be ready for adoption. Needs range from something as basic as ear treatment or teeth cleaning to critical, life-saving surgery. We also provide the 'senior special' to our in-house senior animals, which may include bloodwork and a full dental cleaning.

We Pay to Spay: We offer low-cost spay and neuter surgeries to the breeds most commonly found in our shelter -- pit bulls and chihuahuas. It is our hope that by offering these services at a reduced fee ($25 and $50 respectively) we will make spay and neuter surgeries more accessible, especially to those who might not otherwise be able to afford a costly procedure. By ensuring that these pet owners have access to spay and neuter, we are preventing future unplanned litters, and reducing the number of homeless and unwanted dogs that are entering our care.

Paw Pantry: Over the past several years, countless residents have found themselves unemployed, working reduced hours, or simply unable to leave their homes. With many facing uncertainty on how they will afford to care for their pets, we launched the Paw Pantry - a free drive-through pet pantry providing cat food, dog food, and kitty litter. We also deliver pet food to seniors who cannot leave their homes.
