WHO WE ARE
The SPCA of Polk County, is a NO-KILL animal shelter that serves the residents of Polk County & surrounding communities. It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization operated primarily by volunteers and a few paid staff members. We are not funded by other SPCA organizations nor do we receive federal funding.
We operate completely on donations from our supporters.
Our mission is to engage with the community to encourage responsible pet care, including the benefits of spay and neuter to reduce overpopulation; reunite lost animals with their owners and provide humane care while seeking loving, compatible forever homes for animals under our guardianship.
The SPCA of Polk County started operations in 1978 and while our beginnings were humble, we have grown from strength to strength. Seeing a steady increase in animals over the years, we have also branched out to provide community programs for Trap, Neuter & Return and Low Income Spay & Neuter. All for the animals!
