Imagine if animals didn't need the support of San Francisco's rescues and shelters. Imagine a community where every animal has a loving home.
The mission of the San Francisco SPCA is to save and protect animals, to provide care and treatment, to advocate for their welfare and to enhance the human-animal bond.

There is one aspect of care we cannot provide to the wonderful cats and dogs in our shelter, you. While our dogs reside in spacious apartments and enjoy daily walks and training sessions, and while cats play, nap and scratch in their comfortable condos, what they really need is a loving home. That's where you come in. Visit Maddie's Adoption Center to find the right companion animal and we'll work with you to ensure the right fit and a smooth transition. All of our animals have received a pre-adoption veterinary exam and behavior assessment, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and a microchip. And our adoption package includes a post-adoption veterinary exam, microchip registration, a coupon for PurinaONE pet food, 30 days of Pet Insurance compliments of ShelterCare Insurance, and a discount at selected pet supply stores.
