End of Life Services


Euthanasia Services

We encourage you to bring your pet’s favorite blanket or another comfort from home to provide him/her that extra added peace during his/her passing.

For all euthanasia requests, please bring a government issued identification card and your veterinarian’s diagnosis to confirm the euthanasia reason.  If one is not provided, the Sacramento SPCA retains the right to deny the euthanasia request. 

We accept cash or credit card only (no checks please) to provide any of the three euthanasia services below:

Interment Services

Losing a beloved pet is something we will all face as animal lovers. Because we understand what it means when a cherished companion passes away, the Sacramento SPCA recently constructed a columbarium where your pet’s ashes can be interred and where you are welcome to visit for years to come.

Pet Loss Support Group

Until further notice, Pet Loss Support Meetings will be taking place online via Zoom. Please contact mmusser@sspca.org for details and meeting link.

November’s meeting will be held Tuesday, November 10th due to Election Day on November 3rd. 

The deep love and strong bonds we have with our companion animals can evoke profound grief and mourning — which can last for years — when they pass away, are nearing end of life, are lost, or we are forced to rehome them. The Sacramento SPCA  Pet Loss Support Group offers a safe, compassionate, empathetic space to share grief reactions, discuss coping skills, and honor the lives of your beloved friend and family member. 

For more information, please call 916-504-2847.
