Psst Are you a brand, artist, shelter, or dog looking to get on Dogly?
Recognized as a “no-kill shelter” the SPCA never euthanizes an animal except in cases of terminal illness, extreme aggression, or the inability to maintain a reasonable quality of life in a shelter environment. Regardless of how long it may take, we are committed to caring for all adoptable animals until a loving, new home can be found. In 2016, we introduced 1,338 animals to their new forever homes.
The SPCA stands firm in its belief that spaying and neutering is essential to alleviate the tragic consequences of unwanted animals. Through our Simpson Clinic, we offer to the public, low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, examination, vaccinations and testing for disease to help people keep their pets healthy. Since establishing our clinic in 1983, we have spayed/neutered 50,000 dogs and cats, successfully reducing the number of strays brought to our shelter by 50% over the last ten years.
Beginning in 2007, we began a program to rescue dogs from high-kill shelters where they were slated to be euthanized due to lack of space. With a solid adoption rate at our shelter, we were confident we could find loving homes for them which we have done with great success. To date, the SPCA has saved the lives of thousands from high-kill shelters in the US and worldwide; 619 animals were rescued by the SPCA and found new loving homes in 2016 alone.
