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, please ensure you are wearing 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.

  • CDC is aware of a small number of pets worldwide, including cats and dogs, reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, mostly after close contact with people with COVID-19.

  • Based on the limited information available to date, the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is considered to be low.

  • It appears that the virus that causes COVID-19 can spread from people to animals in some situations.

  • Treat pets as you would other human family members – do not let pets interact with people or animals outside the household. If a person inside the household becomes sick, isolate that person from everyone else, including pets.

  • This is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as it becomes available.
