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.

Pay it forward: Shelter animals cost us an average of five times their adoption fees but your donation today will help fund their food, shelter and care.
Teaching kids to promote compassion for all living things helps us build the next generation of ambassadors for animals.
