The Bakersfield SPCA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which was incorporated in 1950. We adopt out several thousand animals each year and we work with other shelters in our county to help place animals who otherwise may not find a home. We are also committed to educating the community about responsible pet ownership. SPCA volunteers are involved with our foster care, animal companion and pet therapy programs.
Adopting a friend
We encourage the entire family to visit us when choosing a new lifetime companion. We have four spacious exercise yards where everyone can get to know each other. In our cattery, we have areas where you and a new feline friend can also get acquainted. After you have made a "love connection," a simple contract is signed once our policies and procedures are explained. Animals of age will be altered before they go home. Kittens and puppies too young to alter will go home with a spay/neuter voucher.
Come Visit Us!
We are located in Bakersfield. Our shelter is on Gibson Street, off Rosedale Highway.
