• Our shelter is currently in need of scoop able litter and Amazon Gift cards for flea treatments and new kennel buckets!
Be a responsible pet owner! Spay and neuter your pet. Remember pet overpopulation isn’t the end of the world, UNLESS you are a puppy or a kitten.
We have dogs/puppies, cats in need of permanent, loving homes. There is an adoption application to fill out, and upon approval, there will be an adoption contract/agreement to be completed. You must present a valid picture ID in order to adopt.
Please note that the shelter has the right to refuse adoption to potential adopters.
The adoption fees are $120 for puppies, $100 for adult dogs (over 1 yr); cats/kittens are $70. (Cash Only Please) Special breeds/purebreds may be higher. This adoption fee includes the spay/neuter and FVRCP>= vaccinations.
Policy for Intake of Displaced Pets
The Merced SPCA strives to promote the prevention of animal cruelty within Merced County, to educate the public with regards to the benefits of spaying and neutering household pets, and to encourage the responsible adoption of animals into loving and permanent homes.
A non- profit organization since 1967, the Merced Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) operates a no-kill shelter with the help of kind and dedicated volunteers. Funding for the Merced SPCA is obtained through the generous donations received from various individuals, organizations, corporations and businesses and new memberships. The Merced SPCA appreciates all the help it receives from volunteers, donors, and members.
We are a no-kill shelter…and, with your generous support, we will be here until they all have a home!
