spcaLA Mission Statement

spcaLA is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals through

Education, Law Enforcement, Intervention, & Advocacy.

We believe that animals, as living creatures, have value beyond economic measurement, and are entitled to legal, moral and ethical consideration and protection. spcaLA is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, independently chartered organization that is not affiliated with any other “SPCA” or humane society (Tax ID 95-1738153). There is no national SPCA, parent organization, or umbrella group that provides financial support. Each SPCA and Humane Society is a completely unrelated organization.

spcaLA does not receive funding from any federal, state or local government agency. Financial support for the organization’s humane programs is provided solely by donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations. Complete financial information can be found on spcaLA’s Guidestar profile (free registration may be required).

Aired July 12, 2020. On the show: Lisa Foxx talks to the VP of the SPCA - LA, Miriam Davenport about how they are helping to get animals adopted and fostered year round, but especially during COVID-19. She also discussed the ways they work with local law enforcement to handle numerous cases of animal cruelty 😒. They also offer TONS of animal training, financial assistance with vet bills and more. They heavily VET potential 'pet guardians' and are ALWAYS about doing what they can to connect 'forever matches' 😁. Donations always needed. Check out more here: https://spcala.com/
