Today the San Francisco SPCA announced that 554 homeless animals had received assistance last year thanks to the Maddie's Fund Treatable Assistance Program (TAP). The TAP is a pilot program that helps northern California shelters find homes for senior animals, or those with treatable medical conditions, who were transferred from animal control shelters. The TAP provides a stipend when those animals are adopted, and in 2013 the SF SPCA received $419,300.
