Cute Puppy

Hercules was surrendered to us by his heartbroken family who couldn’t afford his veterinary care. He suffered a back injury that compressed the discs in his vertebrae causing his back legs to be paralyzed. With nowhere to turn, his family decided that giving up Hercules was better than putting him down. They pleaded with us to save his life and find him a good home. Today, Hercules is recovering and learning to walk again. His positive and happy attitude are contagious to anyone who meets him.

There are so many ways that you can help us help the animals. You can make a one-time gift, become a Constant Companion by setting up a monthly donation, give a gift in memory or in honor of a pet or human friend or family member and on and on. See all the ways you can give below.

Paws for Health Fund

At the Sacramento SPCA, nearly one out of five animals needs some kind of veterinary care before they can be ready for adoption into a new home. Veterinary care needs range anywhere from something as simple as flea medication or teeth cleaning to critical life-saving surgery.

Naming Opportunities at the Shelter

As demand for our services continues to grow, the Sacramento SPCA is pleased to offer naming opportunities as a way to help animals in our community. You can choose to feature your name or the name of a beloved person or pet in various areas throughout the shelter. 

Your generosity will provide shelter, medical care, and homes for thousands of animals that many never have had a chance without your help.


Corporate Partners and Sponsors

The Sacramento SPCA has appreciated outstanding support from businesses and professionals throughout the Sacramento region. This support allows us to provide programs to help keep people and their pets together as well as provide a safe and nurturing environment for unwanted, abandoned and mistreated pets until they can be permanently placed into loving homes.
