Founded in 1868, the SF SPCA is a community-supported nonprofit dedicated to saving, protecting and caring for cats and dogs. As an independent nonprofit that receives no federal, state or local funding or from national organizations (including the ASPCA), we rely solely on donations from our supporters to provide our many services, such as The Leanne B. Roberts Animal Care Center, which includes our Primary Care Veterinary Hospital, Spay/Neuter Clinic, Feral Cat Assistance Program, Foster Care Program, and Shelter Medicine Department. Other programs and services we offer include an Adoption Center, Humane Education, Public Dog Training Classes, and Animal Assisted Therapy.
