This program is aimed to increase older animals’ chances of finding a new home while also improving the health and quality of life of senior citizens.

East Bay SPCA staff will help you select a senior pet (ages 7 and up) who fits into your lifestyle and housing situation. To make it as easy as possible for seniors to adopt, adoption fees for senior pets are waived for adopters 65 and above!

Our Pawspice Adoption Program aims to help animals with complex or terminal medical conditions who still have a high quality of life, find loving homes faster. Through this program, we are able to help cover the animal’s medical care for adopters providing a permanent home. Thanks to our generous donors, Pawspice animals have waived adoption fees and medical care* after adoption is provided at our Theodore B. Travers Family Veterinary Clinic in Oakland for the remainder of their lives.

Available Pawspice animals will be listed below. If you don’t see any, check back soon!

*for known conditions, speak to shelter staff for more information
