SPCA for Monterey County

Mission

The mission of The SPCA for Monterey County is to assure the compassionate and humane treatment of all animals in our community.

The Big Idea

The Treatment, Learning, and Compassion (TLC) program provides veterinary care or one-on-one behavioral intervention for homeless, abused, or neglected pets to make them happy, healthy, and adoptable.

The SPCA’s Treatment, Learning, and Compassion (TLC) program is at the heart of our mission to assure compassionate and humane treatment of all animals in our community. TLC provides the veterinary care and/or one-on-one behavioral intervention for homeless, abused, or neglected pets to make them happy, healthy, and adoptable.

These vulnerable pets arrive in need – with broken bones, painful skin conditions, or upper respiratory infections, to name just a few of the many physical issues we successfully treat every week. TLC also helps animals who need training to thrive in a new home as well as those who arrive fearful or unsure of humans and need to learn to trust people again.

This special care and attention may last several weeks to several months as we evaluate and monitor the ongoing process of the individual pet before placing them for adoption so they have the best chance for long term success in their new home. Last year, we found new homes for more than 800 cats and dogs through our TLC Program. We are increasing our efforts and this year we have a goal to treat, rehabilitate, and find loving homes for more 1,000 pets with medical and/or behavior issues.

A few months ago, I was in the process of deciding to adopt an adult dog or not (I had lost my 13 year old, beloved Pit Bull a year prior). While I was still debating I saw Hazel on The SPCA’s website and decided to do a visit. The staff and volunteers couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating in encouraging me to adopt Hazel. Everyone there made me feel welcome. I highly recommend the SPCA for Monterey County to anyone looking for a new member of the family. I will forever be grateful for all their efforts and for Hazel.
