The Yolo County SPCA is a non-profit organization that was formed by a group of individuals dedicated to improving the lives of animals in need in Yolo County. The Yolo County SPCA is not affiliated with any other local or national animal welfare organization, and depends on community donations and support to care for animals in need. The Yolo County SPCA is overseen by a volunteer board of directors and relies on a network of volunteer foster homes to rescue the many homeless animals in our community.
Our foster home program enables us to care for animals that need love, socialization, and structure in order to become adoptable. Our caregivers nurture and support many homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens, some of which are sick, injured, or underage, until they are ready to be adopted to new homes. We give support by providing food, medications, veterinary care and guidance; volunteers open their homes to these animals sometimes long periods of time. With the support of our foster homes, we adopted 376 cats and kittens and 125 dogs and puppies into permanent, loving homes in 2020. For over 30 years, the Yolo County SPCA has operated a thrift store in downtown Davis. The proceeds from our store help provide funding for our programs.
