July 3, 2019 – California’s Budget Includes $5 Million for Compassionate Veterinary Care – 

The San Francisco SPCA applauds the compassionate inclusion of funding to aid people experiencing homelessness and their pets in California’s newly adopted budget. The 2019-20 budget, which went into effect on July 1, includes $5 million in grants to fund veterinary and other care for pets of people facing homelessness.

Pets are part of the family, no matter where you live. That is why the SF SPCA works diligently in our community to highlight the significance of the human-animal bond for everyone. Providing veterinary care for the pets of those experiencing homelessness is a critical issue that we are facing in San Francisco. This funding will help provide life-saving services to those who might otherwise go without.
