SPCA Florida is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Lakeland, Florida, founded in 1979. Dedicated to improving the lives on pets and people in the community, SPCA Florida provides caring, compassion, and hope to several thousand homeless pets every year. Open to the public, our Medical Center is a state-of-the-art veterinary facility that heals and helps 20,000 patients annually. Thousands more pets and people are served through our community outreach and education programs. SPCA Florida is a No-Kill organization and will only euthanize animals for medical reasons.
When you arrive at the Adoption Center we invite you to take a look around and meet the animals. We encourage you and your family to spend time with each pet you are interested in to see which is the best fit. Our trained staff and volunteers are happy to answer questions about the animals and provide you with whatever background information we have regarding that pet. Please keep in mind we do not always know all of the adoptable animals’ history or background depending on how they arrived at SPCA Florida. If you currently have a dog at home, we recommend bringing them in to interact with your potential new dog. When you find a pet you would like to adopt, the next step is to fill out an Adoption Application, which will be reviewed by one of our trained counselors. The counselors will answer any questions you may have. If the pet is already sterilized he or she can go home the same day, otherwise the surgery is normally scheduled the next day and the pet can go home the day after surgery. Please note adopters must be 18 years or older and present a valid photo ID, and no adoptions are processed 30 minutes prior to closing.
