Programs and Services

OUR VISION:

Our vision is to create a humane community – and achieving that vision begins with ending the euthanasia of all adoptable pets.

OUR HISTORY:

The SPCA was founded in Raleigh, NC in 1967 by local concerned citizens who believed the world could be made just a little better. Animals are the heart of our mission, but PEOPLE are the reason we exist.
