Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA) is an independent, nonprofit animal welfare organization serving Southern California since 1877. Donations run programs and services including Cruelty Investigations, Disaster Animal Response Team, Humane Education and a variety of shelter services.
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.
