About the SPCA of Central Florida

Founded in 1937, more than 14,000 homeless dogs and cats will turn to the SPCA of Central Florida for caring, compassion and hope through our animal shelters this year. Highly skilled veterinarians help and heal an additional 45,000 animals in the SPCA’s veterinary clinics. The SPCA provides shelter for animals in crisis, disaster response efforts, and “Meals on Wheels” for dogs and cats in need, helping thousands more animals each year.
