The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Scottish SPCA) is Scotland's animal welfare charity. Our objectives are to prevent cruelty to animals and encourage kindness and humanity in their treatment.
As an animal charity, we receive no government or lottery funding and rely on public donations to continue our vital work rescuing and rehoming Scotland's abandoned, neglected and defenceless animals.
Scottish SPCA Inspectors save thousands of domestic, farm and wild animals from harm and danger every year, while our vets and staff in our wildlife and animal rescue and rehoming centres look after, rehabilitate and rehome thousands more. Visit our online rehoming section to view some of our rescued dogs, cats and other animals needing new homes.
We run an animal welfare education programme in schools, communities and our largest centres. We also campaign for improved animal welfare standards.
Volunteers play a key role working with animals, supporting our education programme and fundraising in their local communities.
