Notes:As the fourth oldest humane society in the U.S. and the founders of the No-Kill movement, the SF SPCA has always been at the forefront of animal welfare. As a result of our efforts and those of our community partners, San Francisco has the lowest euthanasia rate of any major city in the United States. No adoptable dog or cat in San Francisco goes without a home, even if they have medical or other issues. In 2014 we merged with Pets Unlimited, a likeminded animal welfare nonprofit in Pacific Heights. Their organization included a nonprofit veterinary hospital that provided significant financial assistance to pet guardians in need, as well as a small adoption center. The original SF SPCA campus in the Mission, and the additional campus in Pacific Heights, are now working toward the same shared mission and goals. We imagine a community where every animal has a loving home. Where animals don’t need the support of San Francisco’s rescues and shelters. And we know how to get there. In 2012, the SF SPCA created Vision 2020—a road map to end animal abandonment in San Francisco by 2020. The plan identifies three main reasons animals end up in shelters—overpopulation, barriers to veterinary care and pet behavior issues. By addressing these issues aggressively, we will make San Francisco the first city in the nation to end animal homelessness. All our programs and services support at least one of three Vision 2020 principles: prevention, rescue and education.
