Out and About
Our shelter may be physically located on Chanticleer Avenue, but our animals are everywhere that people and adventure can be found in the Santa Cruz area! Dining al fresco at pet-friendly establishments, socializing on city streets, getting the word out about adoption opportunities at community events, romping in dog parks, visiting classrooms and nursing homes, or enjoying sand and surf. Our adoptable animals are wherever you are, because that’s where the fun (and their future) is!
Humane Educators, Brenna and Cassie, along with Adoptions Supervisor, Tina, and a few adoptable dogs pose for a quick shot, mid walk, during Human Race 2017.
The Santa Cruz SPCA and the Capitola Mall team up to build a pet-themed float for the 65th Annual Begonia Festival.
The Santa Cruz SPCA is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of animals. We receive no government funding, and depend solely on financial support from our friends. Our organization is not affiliated with any other SPCA or Humane Society.
