Education is one of three key components of Vision 2020, which is the San Francisco SPCA's plan to end animal abandonment in San Francisco by the year 2020. The SF SPCA is imbedded in the community to be a resource of information, support and to encourage advocacy. Our Advocacy Department takes us a step closer to Vision 2020 by identifying and impacting animal welfare issues in San Francisco, the state of California, and beyond.

Our Advocacy Blog makes it easy for you to stay up-to-date on local animal welfare issues and to get involved, as does our Facebook and our Twitter
