The mission of SPCA International is simple but vast: to advance the safety and well-being of animals.They accomplish this mission through both internal and outreach programs, and through our support of shelters already hard at work to benefit the animals in local communities.
These are the people who make it happen for soldiers in the Mid East to come home with their canine companions that helped make their deployment tolerable.
|Shelter Programs: SPCA International shows its support at the local level every month through multiple awards of cash grants to needy shelters. This money helps the shelters improve their physical conditions, enhance their spay and neuter programs and ultimately reduce euthanasia rates.|
|Operation Baghdad Pups Program: This program helps our troops by safely transporting the animals they befriend in the war zone home to the United States. Operation Baghdad Pups is a logistically challenging program, but it does more than save animals - it also brings comfort, peace of mind and relief to our U.S. soldiers serving overseas. SPCA International receives at least three to four new requests from soldiers, sailors and Marines every week.|
|SPCA Answers Program: This program serves as a hub for information and as a referral resource for animal lovers throughout the world. SPCA Answersconnects people with local shelters, helps initiate cruelty investigations, assists animal advocates throughout the world in the fight against cruelty, offers individual support for people dealing with unique situations, and much more.|
