SPCA Monterey County


Assuring compassionate treatment of all animals through rescue, rehabilitation, protection, and education.

The Big Idea

Your donation to the SPCA Monterey County supports the heart of its mission: providing medical care and behavior intervention to stray and surrendered pets. Without its Treatment, Learning, and Compassion (TLC) program, thousands of local animals would be homeless. The SPCA cares for domestic dogs, cats and small animals, as well as farm animals like horses and ducks. The SPCA has experienced tremendous recent demand, facilitating meaningful pandemic-era adoptions and providing crisis care during devastating wildfires.

We've adopted 3 pets from the SPCA over the past 2 years, 2 guinea pigs and a dog. Now, it took some patience as finding the right companion dog for our elder 14-year-old Aussie cattle dog was not an easy task. We made appointments and saw two dogs before meeting little Nelly- the chillest, most awesome 4 year old chiweenie (chihuahua/dachshund mix) you've ever met. I really appreciated how the staff really took the time to get to know our own dog, and make sure that it would be a good fit as she is very elderly and needed to have a partner who was lower energy and calm.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
