Our Mission: To transform the lives of pets and people through protection, care, education and adoption. Our vision is to create a humane community – and achieving that vision begins with ending the euthanasia of all adoptable animals.


Did you know that when you adopt from the SPCA you not only save the life of the pet you take home, but also the pet who gets your new pet’s empty kennel? It’s true. As soon as a pet is adopted a space is opened for the SPCA to save another pet’s life!
