Rescue & Adoption

Recognized as a “No-Kill” Rescue Center, the SPCA is committed to finding homes for all adoptable animals regardless of space or length of stay.

The SPCA provides a safe haven for abandoned and abused animals in need of rescue, veterinary care, enrichment, and love while they await adoption. We accept lost and abandoned dogs and cats through local municipal contracts, owner surrenders, abused and neglected animals rescued by the SPCA’s Humane Law Enforcement Unit and at-risk animals from overcrowded and high-kill shelters.

More than 5,000 orphaned animals and pets are supported every year through the SPCA’s many life-saving rescue and community outreach programs.

The SPCA has a full-time Director of Behavior and Enrichment for the purpose of promoting activities and training that help animals thrive and learn skills that prepare them for life with a forever family. Through the generosity of the John and Christine Tortorella Foundation, the SPCA began a program, The Way Home, which offers special training, encouragement and enrichment activities to dogs with behavioral challenges to improve their chances of being adopted.
