Since 1969, our mission has been to work collaboratively with the Merced Animal Control Division to save as many shelter animals as we can through rescue, foster and transport; to improve our community’s environmental health and safety by reducing illnesses in feral animals through trapping and vaccinations, and to continue to spay and neuter of as many of Merced’s animals as we can through our TNR program in an effort to decrease the overwhelming euthanasia rate due to abandonment, abuse and overpopulation.

The Merced Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focusing on the TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) Program. This is a local chapter and not affiliated with any national programs.

We are an organization of volunteers that believes that we can build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness.

The Merced SPCA hopes to increase 
our TNR, fostering and awareness 
programs but we are in desperate 
need of volunteers and financial 
support. If you are interested in 
volunteering, please email

The Merced SPCA is fully funded 
by member and community donations. Merced SPCA has no staff---we are operated by volunteers.

100% of donations are used to support the TNR program, feeding  and medical care of Merced's feral cat colonies, end-of-life services for sick animals and minimal administrative costs (office supplies, insurance and professional fees).
