Our mission is to aid and adopt animals in need, reduce pet overpopulation and educate the public regarding responsible pet ownership.
SPCA Florida operates an adoption center, taking in almost 6,000 animals each year. In addition, SPCA Florida operates a full service Medical Center. We provide services to our community at all income levels, everything from vaccinations to heartworm treatment.

My 4yr old Pitt/Rottie mix was so lonely, I brought him to SPCA to visit with several dogs who might be possible "sisters". We picked Lucy, a pointer mix and he has been happy ever since. She is so sweet, full of life and happy. Our household is much brighter because of her. They play all the time. Thanks SPCA!
I adopted 2 cats. They were well taken care of. The shots and neutering was taken care of and the pets have been an important part of our (my son & I) live these 10 and 16 years. They are part of our family.
The center is clean and careful with adoptions.
