How You Can Help


The services of the Bakersfield SPCA are only possible because of the generous donations of money and time by our many community volunteers.

This support ensures that the organization can provide ongoing services for homeless animals in a safe clean environment at its adoption center and can provide low cost services to reduce animal overpopulation.

The Bakersfield SPCA believes the pet overpopulation problem can be alleviated through active responsible pet ownership, education programs, enforcement of current laws and the spay and neuter of pets.
