Pet Deposit Assistance

Providing support to keep people with their pets is a very important part of what we do at the Santa Cruz SPCA. We believe that most often, the best home for a pet is the one they are already in – with familiar people who love and care for them! That is why we are now offering pet deposit assistance to members of our community who may not otherwise be able to afford it.

To qualify:

  • You must be 18 years or older
  • You and your pet must reside in Santa Cruz County
  • You must be the owner of the pet
  • You must be able to provide us with landlord contact info and understand we will work directly with them to fund the deposit

To apply for this assistance program, please fill out the application below!
