Our Mission

More information, including applications for volunteering and adopting are available at

The SPCA of Jefferson County is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1891 to help protect and care for domestic animals in Jefferson County. We are the only no-kill facility in the area, as well as being the only shelter to accept owned dogs, stray and owned cats, or small critters of any kind in the county. Our shelter also has the only early-age spay/neuter before adoption program in Jefferson county.

As a non-profit organization, our service to the community depends on the donations that we recive from the general public as well as from our varied fun-raising events.


The most direct way to help is by donating your time or by donating financially. It’s easy to become a member. Simply print off
