Other Ways to Give
Shelter Wish List
A meaningful gift can be as simple as providing shelter animals with all of the comforts of home: beds, toys, blankets, and so much more! View our Shelter Wish List and deliver your donation to the shelter or purchase your donation through Amazon.com Wish List and your gift will be shipped directly to us.
Pet Food Pantry
Our pet food pantry provides pets and pet guardians with food to keep animals fed, in their own loving homes, ultimately reducing the risk of owned animals entering the shelter system. We accept food that is new, has been opened, and/or is expired, but food must be in its original packaging.
Donations are accepted at both the Oakland and Dublin adoption centers. Front desk staff is available to accept your contribution Wednesday-Sunday during normal business hours (11:00am-6:00pm.)
Workplace Giving and Matching Gifts
Automatically donate a percentage of your paycheck to the East Bay SPCA through your employer’s workplace giving program! Donors still receive gift acknowledgement letters for tax purposes (if the East Bay SPCA is notified of the donor’s name and address), and the contributions are listed on their W2 form.
In addition, many companies offer matching gift programs in which your charitable contribution is eligible to be matched dollar for dollar by your employer! It’s a simple way to double the impact of your donation!
Think dogs are the only ones who can rollover? You can help local pets by rolling over your IRA. Now that Congress has made permanent the Charitable IRA Rollover annual tax exemption, it’s always time to consider a donation! Check with your IRA custodian to see if they have a special application for a charitable IRA rollover or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Have a vehicle you no longer need? Donate your clunker to Cars with Heart and choose the East Bay SPCA as your desired benefactor. Proceeds from the sale help provide second chances to animals in our care. Details available here.
Stock and Securities Donations
By donating securities you help provide for homeless animals in our care and may benefit from valuable tax advantages. To inquire about donating stock, please contact Grace Reddy, Vice President of Development & Marketing at email@example.com or 510-746-5111.
