What we aim to solve

If you look at a map of the world and put your finger down on any place, on almost any continent, you would be pointing at hundreds of suffering animals. From companion animals, like dogs and cats, to wildlife and sea life, stopping abuse and suffering is a huge challenge.

Charting impact

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

The SPCA International works to stop the abuse and suffering of animals with innovative programs that serve both animals and their human caretakers.

SPCAI serves and partners with shelters, rescue groups and governments around the world. Through these unique and pioneering partnerships local organizations are able to rescue, treat, rehabilitate, feed, sterilize and home more animals than ever before.

With a nimble and effective staff of animal rescue experts, passionate individuals and volunteers SPCA International has proven very adept at meeting and exceeding goals. By forging partnerships internationally with local organizations and animal advocates, SPCA International has been able to rescue animals from war zones, increase spay and neuter rates, reduce abuse and increase adoption in many parts of the world.

SPCAI has seen growth in almost every area for consecutive years. From 2014 to 2015, SPCAI increased Shelter Support Fund grant distributions by more than 63%. Since 2007 when the Shelter Support Fund program began SPCAI has increased grant dollars by more than 936%. In 2015, SPCAI distributed 17% more veterinary supply aid than the previous year. We also rescued 16% more animals for military servicemembers on deployment through the Operation Baghdad Pups: Worldwide program in 2015. While the Operation Military Pets program saw a 101% increase in families helped with $184,344 in grants awarded to military families struggling to keep their pets. Additionally, we found ways to reduce some program costs by as much as 70%.

Even with all this growth and measurable impact, we have not accomplished enough because animals continue to suffer. The SPCAI team will continue to set high goals and work daily to meet them because these significant gains year after year will one day add up to an end to needless animal suffering.
