You hear that everywhere.
It seems that everyone is hurting for money and in search of much needed funding. Programs to help people are being discontinued or cut back and everyone is in search for programs that will help. We want to be one of the places where people can find help.
We, ( Solano SPCA staff, volunteers, board of directors) have been working very hard for the last ten years to make the SPCA of Solano County an organization that is able to help people with animal needs. With the help of public support the SPCA of Solano County has been able to open a low cost spay & neuter clinic. With your support we were able to rescue over 100 puppies from a puppy mill situation. With your support the SPCA now hosts a monthly Pet Loss Support Group.
The SPCA also now has a pet assisted therapy program which takes animals to assisted living homes to visit with the residents who have had to give up their pets when they moved into the facility. This program is very popular and is run completely by our dedicated volunteers. SPCA of Solano County is also partnering with local Meals on Wheels program to help the pets in the family.
As you may or may not know the SPCA of Solano County is a private 501c3 private non profit shelter. We do not receive funding from anyone. The commercials that you see on television does not generate funds for local shelters. All donations sent to them stays at the ASPCA, Humane Society of the United States, etc.
****** They do not disperse funds to local organizations. *****
The SPCASC adopts on the average approximately 40 – 50 animals each month into forever homes. Our clinic has performed over 5000 in the first year of operation. That is a lot of animals that won’t be surrendered to municipal shelters.
We need your help to continue to operate these much needed programs. Donations can be mailed in to SPCA of Solano County PO Box 356 Vacaville, CA 95696, brought directly to the shelter or donate online for your convenience. All donations are fully deductible and a tax deductible receipt will be provided for you. Please consider the SPCA of Solano County when making your end of the year donation.
The SPCA of Solano County would rather focus on the positive aspect of the animals here at the shelter. We post #happyathome photos and you will rarely see a photo of an available animal taken through the bars of the kennels. Our animals get regular walks and attention from dedicated volunteers and staff. Our shelter veterinarian makes sure that they are happy and healthy while they wait for their forever homes. We have created a fund for the animals that come in with medical issues. It is called Krinkls fund. Donations to this fund is designated to the medical needs of the animals.
“Gray” came to the SPCA of Solano County when our pet therapy group was visiting at one of the assisted living facilities in Vacaville. His owner had passed away and there was nobody to take care of the dog. Our group was asked to take him so they did. He needed some dental work and some extra care but he has now found his forever home with a new dog brother and sister! We are very happy for them!!!! 🙂 #happyathome
The SPCA of Solano County also now has a pet therapy group that takes animals to visit our senior citizens at local assisted living facilities. Many of these people had to give up their pets and love to have our pets and volunteers come spend some time where they can hold a cat on their lap for a little while. This particular program is starting to take on a life of its own. We are getting more and more people and pets wanting to join the program. It is very rewarding for everyone and the program is run completely by volunteers. It was developed by Derek Palm as a school project and is a very popular one. Our pets and volunteers go every Sunday to different homes to spend time with the seniors. This video is just some of their adventures!
