Our guests, staff, volunteers and animals are our top priority at the SPCA of Polk County. 

We ask that you, like us, follow the guidelines as outlined by the CDC, State, County and City officials to make sure we are doing our part to stop the spread.


If you need to visit us, it is recommended you wear a face mask and follow the 6 foot apart social distance rule.  In addition, please send only one person per family into the building. 

We will try to accommodate any special requirements.

Alternatively, please  wait in your vehicle in our parking areas and call our office, where we will be happy to attend to you.
