The East Bay SPCA has been committed to the welfare of cats and dogs in the communities we serve since 1874. We strive to eliminate animal cruelty, neglect and overpopulation by providing programs and education that support people and companion animals. The East Bay SPCA’s veterinary services clinics are a cut above the rest. In 2015, we achieved accreditation from the American Veterinary Hospital Association (AAHA), placing us in the top 12% of veterinary clinics nationwide. The East Bay SPCA has long realized that the solution to the plight of homeless pets is not only more adoption homes, but access to spay and neuter surgery. The East Bay SPCA was one of the first animal welfare organizations in our community to direct that no animal would leave our facility unaltered. Since 1998, we have performed more than 150,000 surgeries! Our veterinarians and veterinary staff have seen it all: working with shelter animals as well as a healthy practice of privately owned animals.
