Serving Our Community The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, also known as spca cincinnati, is an animal shelter and humane society that continually strives to strengthen the human-animal bond, improving the welfare of all animals.

The underlying philosophy at spca cincinnati is that how a community treats its animals is a reflection of how its members treat each other. Our services cover a wide range: providing food, shelter, medical treatment, spay/neuter, adoption, animal rescue, lost and found, wildlife rescue, fostering programs, Pets for People, and our well-known Mobile Adoption Units that have served our community for more than 20 years.

spca cincinnati was voted “Best of Cincinnati” for its outstanding work in pet adoptions. We have placed 38,000 animals in the past five years into loving homes.
