Founded in 1874, the East Bay SPCA is one of the nation’s oldest animal welfare organizations. The East Bay SPCA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to the welfare of cats and dogs in Alameda and Contra Costa counties (in California). Its mission is to eliminate animal cruelty, neglect and overpopulation by providing programs and education that support people and companion animals, which in return enriches the human-animal bond.
A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps the East Bay SPCA expand their senior dog adoption program, which currently includes waived fees for Seniors-for-Seniors adoptions, Pawspice care, and needed medical and dental treatment for senior dogs. With this additional funding, the East Bay SPCA will transfer 30 additional at-risk senior dogs from municipal shelters to their facility, provide necessary care and help them find forever homes.
