Description: The Santa Cruz SPCA is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of animals. Serving our community since 1938, we offer programs and resources focused on humane education, spay/neuter awareness and assistance, and adoption and rescue, as well as support for our human community. By keeping animals healthy, happy, and well-homed, we aim to reduce the number of pets that end up in shelters and enhance the quality of life for all.
