What Does SPCA International Do?06.png

Advancing the Safety and Well-Being of Animals

Operation Military Pets

We've helped over 100 military families' pets since 2013. When military families are ordered to a new base in the U.S. or around the world, moving bills pile up. The military pays for many moving costs, but they do not help relocate their beloved pets. The cost for pet transportation can be hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Military families are being torn apart due to financial strain. All over the U.S., animal shelters near military bases report high surrender rates when military families cannot afford to relocate their dogs or cats. To help keep military families together and animals out of shelters, Operation Military Pets provides financial assistance to military families for pet relocation costs.

Shelter Grant Program

We've helped hundreds of animal shelters since 2007. We give direct support by awarding Shelter Grants to many animal organizations in need of assistance throughout the U.S. and all over the world. These much needed funds go toward helping animal shelters improve their facility, as well as supporting spay and neuter programs and ultimately reducing euthanasia rates.

Animal shelters always try to plan for an influx of animals, an emergency situation or an unforeseen expense. Many times organizations become overwhelmed. SPCA International distributes Emergency Grants to shelters when they need it the most, in urgent crisis situations.

Global Animal Veterinary Assistance

We've provided many millions in supplies since 2009. Each year SPCA International distributes critical veterinary medical supplies to animal shelters throughout the world. As a result, organizations in developing countries have been able to treat more sick and injured animals. These donations along with financial grants have allowed organizations to provide successful spay and neuter events throughout the year. Through this program we have distributed millions of dollars in veterinary medical supplies to shelters on almost every continent.

Operation Baghdad Pups

We've helped over 500 U.S. service members' animals since 2008. U.S. troops deployed around the world befriend local animals as a way to cope with the emotional hardships they endure every day far from home and loved ones. These animals, often called military mascots or patriot pets, not only help our heroes while stationed overseas, but also help them readjust to life when they return home.

This highly successful and celebrated program has been reuniting U.S. service members with their companions since 2008. Operation Baghdad Pups provides veterinary care and coordinates complicated logistics and transportation requirements in order to reunite these beloved pets with their service men and women back in the U.S.

Education Programs

We've reached hundreds of thousands of people and animals worldwide. SPCA International's education outreach reaches hundreds of thousands of pet parents and animal activists every year. Both online and off, we serve as an information and referral resource for animal lovers throughout the world. Skilled staff research questions, find answers, offer advice and connect those requesting assistance. Every year we provide support and help to thousands of individuals in need of animal assistance. Our educational programs reduce animal suffering and abuse by raising awareness and facilitating action among like-minded advocates.
