Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Florida Keys SPCA understands that our organization exists to provide programs and services to address the needs of community pets in the Florida Keys. Pets in the lower and middle Florida Keys are surrendered by owners, lost, and unfortunately suffer from animal cruelty and neglect. In addition the pets of the Florida Keys suffer from accidental litters which contributes to the overpopulation and homelessness of pets nationwide and in the Florida Keys.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Florida Keys SPCA is dedicated to promoting the humane treatment of all animals through compassionate care, adoption, education, population control and humane law enforcement. The Florida Keys SPCA maintains a goal to keep every adoptable animal as long as it takes to find a home. Our goal is to provide programs and services that work to reduce overpopulation of pets, find adoptive homes for homeless pets, investigate cruelty and neglect and return lost pets to their owners.

The Florida Keys SPCA is a safe haven and provides adoption services for the homeless animals of our community. We also provide cruelty investigation and outreach services such as affordable routine medical care and spay neuter for community pets. These services work to provide medical care for pets that would not otherwise receive this care due to financial constraints of their companions. In addition the Florida Keys SPCA provides humane education and a behavior helpline which work to provide resources for pet owners in order to strengthen the animal human bond keeping them in the home.

The Florida Keys SPCA moved in to a brand new 24,000 sq. ft state of the art Center for Education and Animal Welfare in 2019. This facility includes a 2,000 sq. ft clinic that works to provide spay neuter and wellness services for our community pets. The Florida Keys SPCA has the support of foundations, donors and subsidized program revenue to support our goal to provide affordable medical care for our community pets whose companions cannot afford to do so. The Florida Keys SPCA is led by an Executive Director with over 25 years in animal welfare experience who is dedicated to saving animal lives. The Florida Keys SPCA employs 8 Animal Control Officers who investigate animal cruelty and neglect as well as provide safety for lost animals between Key West and Marathon FL (MM0 to MM70). We also employ a dedicated Community Outreach Coordinator and Animal Behavior Program Manager who work to grow and implement programs that work toward our lifesaving mission.
