The SPCA has blessed my family with more than we could ever ask for. By granting a lump sum, my wife and I are able to take our pups to our new home overseas. I highly recommend this organization to anyone in need. The process was easy to do. Everyone we spoke to was very helpful and polite. They take what they do as more than just a job but rather making a difference. We look forward to keeping in touch with this organization and spreading the word to more families just like us. Thank you again SPCA International from the Hernandez family.

My husband is a CPO with the Navy. We have a total of four four-legged babies/fur babies. We have a beautiful English Mastiff, a stunningly pretty brindle bullmastiff, a handsome labrador and a super cute grey tabby cat. My four-legged babies are like two-legged babies to us, so there was no question that they were all PCS’ing together when we left Hawaii to come to San Diego.
Here is where SPCAI comes into the picture. We had money saved up for our PCS, but the money we had was just enough money to get us by. We really needed the help with shipping our four-legged babies and I heard there were some organizations that helped with that, but when contacting some of these “organizations” they really didn’t want to help us. Then I heard of your organization and I filled out an application. It wasn’t maybe 3-4 days after I submitted the application that I heard back from SPCAI’s program manager and she gave me the best news I could ever have. We were approved by your organization for financial assistance in shipping our four-legged babies from Hawaii to San Diego! I was so relieved and so much stress was lifted off our shoulders. There is really no other words to say but thank you so much for your organization. You guys really care about military and you do what you say you are going to do. I admire and would recommend your organization to anyone.

“My husband and I are eternally grateful to this amazing program for the help they gave us in getting our Pets to the states from overseas. We had a physically and emotionally tolling journey and they made it easier for us. It is so hard to get animals home to the states and programs like this one make it more bearable. Our 2 Pets are family members and it would have been devastating to have to leave one of them behind. Our whole family is now stateside and doing so well. Thank you again to donors and this program who helped make it possible.”

“This is absolutely the most amazing organization. This organization has allowed us to get our four legged kids back home with us, without us having to sell everything in our house plus our first born. It is so hard for military families that bounce from one place to another and be able to keep a furry kids with us. Military members and their families are not rich my any means and it is very expensive to transport our pets. These are our family members and it is heart breaking that so many families have to part with their furry kids. Without this organization we would have been in a very, very tough place trying to get our Pets from the UK back to Texas. This organization is truly our life saver, they have kept our family together and we love each and everyone one of them for that.”
