- Founded in 1979, SPCA Florida is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization headquartered in Lakeland. Dedicated to improving the lives of pets and people in the community, SPCA Florida provides caring, compassion and hope to more than 6,000 homeless cats and dogs entering our doors each year. Open to the public, our McClurg Animal Medical Center is a state-of-the-art veterinary facility that heals and helps 50,000 patients annually. SPCA Florida’s veterinary clinic offers affordable spay/neuter services, vaccinations, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, and convenient mobile vaccinations. Thousands more pets and people are served through our community outreach and education programs.
SPCA Florida exists to eliminate animal suffering and to engage the entire community in the welfare and well-being of animals.
We accomplish this by advancing model programs to promote the adoption of healthy animals, prevent dog and cat overpopulation, provide veterinary medical services for animals in the community and keep animals in homes through relinquishment intervention strategies.Join dog lovers and their furry friends on Friday, September 4th from 6 to 9 p.m. forDowntown Lakeland Partnership’s (DLP) Dog Days First Friday.
