Support our work

The Santa Cruz SPCA is a unique-to-Santa-Cruz animal shelter, saving and protecting dogs and cats out of love and respect for the great gifts these animals freely give our human community. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we receive no funds from city, county, state, or federal government. Only the generosity of Santa Cruz keeps our shelter open.
