Animals find themselves in shelters for many reasons. Sometimes we know the specifics and sometimes we can only imagine. No matter the circumstances of how an animal came into our care, once it arrives, we know that it only gets better from here.
Our intake department transfers animals from our primary partner, SF Animal Care and Control as well as shelters throughout California and beyond, focusing on those in our Central Valley Coalition.
Every animal goes through thorough medical and behavioral screenings, is spayed/neutered, microchipped, and readied to find you. Most importantly, every animal is loved and nurtured during its stay at the SF SPCA.
