The East Bay SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) has been concerned with animal welfare for over 135 years. We have been providing shelter, health care, and adoption services for unwanted animals since 1874.

We are committed to finding homes for adoptable cats and dogs, providing affordable veterinary and spay/neuter services, and educating the public on responsible pet ownership. We serve Alameda and Contra Costa Counties and operate two Adoption and Education Centers, two Spay/Neuter Surgery Centers and a full-service Veterinary Clinic.  

The East Bay SPCA is one of our nation's oldest animal welfare organizations.  Like other community-based SPCAs and Humane Society's, we are not run by any national organizations such as the American SPCA (ASPCA) or the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).

The East Bay SPCA is committed to the welfare of cats and dogs in the communities we serve. We strive to eliminate animal cruelty, neglect and overpopulation by providing programs and education that support people and companion animals.

Adoption Holds: A 24-hour hold can be placed on adoptable animals to allow for pet-to-pet introductions, and/or to allow other household members to meet the pet. A hold can only be placed after a member of the household has visited with the animal in person. We can not take holds over phone or email. If the hold results in an adoption, the $25.00 hold fee is applied to the adoption fee. Othewise, the hold fee is non-refundable and treated as a donation.
