SPCA International awarded five Shelter of the Week grants to needy, grassroots animal welfare organizations in conjunction with our participation in the 11th annual Broadway Barks held in New York City and founded by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore. These grants will go a long way in helping each rescue group survive these tough economic times and continue their vital life-saving work. Take a moment to learn about these special organizations and the great work they are accomplishing. We know their stories of dedication and success will inspire you.

It provides foster homes for cats in search of their forever homes and they provide shelter for feral cats through the wind, rain and snow.
Pet-I-Care is an amazing organization run by a dedicated group of passionate individuals. They regularly whisk dogs and cats out of the New York Animal Control system just hours before they are scheduled to be euthanized and give them the love and attention they need.
