The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Scottish SPCA) is Scotland's animal welfare charity. We encourage kindness to animals, aim to prevent cruelty through education, investigate abuse, rescue animals in distress and find animals new homes.
Scottish SPCA inspectors and animal rescue officers save thousands of domestic, farm and wild animals from harm and danger every year, while our vets and staff in our wildlife rescue centre and animal rescue and rehoming centres look after, rehabilitate and rehome thousands more.
The Scottish SCPA is entirely separate from the RSPCA, which operates in England and Wales only.
As an animal welfare charity, we receive no government or lottery funding and rely on public donations to continue our vital work rescuing and rehoming Scotland's abandoned, neglected and defenceless animals.
