Our Mission

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.


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.

We can imagine it. And we know how to get there. Last summer, we launched Vision 2020, our plan to end animal abandonment in San Francisco by 2020. Read about Vision 2020.
