Program areas at SPCAI

Global animal veterinary assistance - each year, the spcai distributes critical veterinary medical supplies to animal shelters throughout the world. As a result, organizations in developing countries have been able to treat more sick and injured animals. These donations, along with financial grants, have allowed organizations to provide successful spay and neuter events throughout the year. Through this program, the spcai has distributed millions of dollars in veterinary medical supplies to shelters on almost every continent.
Shelter and emergency grants - the spcai gives direct support by awarding shelter grants to many animal organizations in need of assistance throughout the us and all over the world. These much needed funds go toward helping animal shelters improve their facility, fund basic needs, support spay and neuter initiatives and ultimately reducing euthanasia rates. Animal shelters always try to plan for an influx of animals, an emergency situation or an unforeseen expense, but many times organizations become overwhelmed. In light of this, the spcai also distributes emergency grants to shelters when they need it most: in urgent crisis situations.
Education programs - the spcai's education outreach reaches hundreds of thousands of pet parents and animal activists every year. Both online and through other media resources, the spcai serves as an information and referral resource for animal lovers throughout the world. Skilled staff research questions, find answers, offer advice, and connect those requesting assistance. Every year, the spcai provides support and help to thousands of individuals in need of animal assistance. The spcai's education programs reduce animal suffering and abuse by raising awareness and facilitating action among like-minded advocates.
Operation baghdad pups - u.s. Troops deployed around the world befriend local animals as a way to cope with the emotional hardships they endure every day far from home and loved ones. These animals, often called military mascots or patriot pets, not only help our heroes while stationed overseas, but also help them readjust to life when they return home. This highly successful and celebrated program has been reuniting u.s. service members with their companions since 2008. Operation baghdad pups provides veterinary care and coordinates complicated logistics and transportation requirements in order to reunite these beloved pets with their service men and women back in the u.s. operation military pets - the spcai has helped military families' pets through the operation military pets program since 2013. When military families are ordered to a new base in the u.s. or around the world, moving bills can be substantial. The military pays for many moving costs, but they do not help relocate their beloved pets. The cost for pet transportation can be significant. Military families are being torn apart due to financial constraints. All over the u.s., animal shelters near military bases report high surrender rates. When military families cannot afford to relocate their dogs or cats to help keep military families together and animals out of shelters, operation military pets provides financial assistance to military families for pet relocation costs. Total amount granted is $273,465.
