Gifts of Cash:
When the animals are coming through our doors by the hundreds and the needs are urgent, a cash gift helps the most. Donated funds allow the SPCA to purchase specific food items guided by the staff veterinarian. Plus, we buy in bulk at nonprofit discounts which makes your donated dollar go further. Donate online here » or mail your gift to the address below.

Make a Directed Gift: Give a gift SPECIFICALLY EARMARKED to purchase pet food. How does this work? When you send in your gift, either on the check memo line or with a note, please indicate you would like your gift used for pet food, or pet food and supplies. Or, donate online using this form Feed me donation form »  Questions about directed or restricted gifts? Contact Mondy Lamb for more info.
