Wildlife, Exotic and Small Pets

The East Bay SPCA is committed to the welfare of cats and dogs in the communities we serve. We strive to eliminate animal cruelty, neglect and overpopulation by providing programs and education that support people and companion animals.

The East Bay SPCA receives many calls and emails about wildlife, exotic pets and small animals. While we may not be able to accommodate these needs, there are many wonderful animal rescue/rehabilitation and adoption organizations in the Bay Area.
