If your pet or an animal is experiencing an emergency, contact your local veterinarian or animal control immediately. We receive a large number of emails every day and do not have the resources to respond to each one without delay. For this reason, if your animal is in distress, do not wait for our response. Please seek local assistance now!

Contacting Us by Phone:
To keep overhead costs down, we have limited staff available to answer and reply to every phone call received. Often staff is away, actively working on our animal programs.
Due to the immense volume of calls, if you must contact us, we strongly ask that you email us through this Web site first.
Please DO NOT use this number for lost or found animals, or adoption inquiries - instead please call your local shelter for faster regional assistance. If you must call us directly, 888-690-SPCA, you may receive our voicemail.
