Find a Shelter

Whether you’re looking to adopt or foster an animal, volunteer to help homeless pets in your community, or report animal cruelty or a lost or found animal, your best bet is reaching out to your local animal shelter. To find shelters near you, use our searchable database of more than 13,000 local SPCAs, humane societies and animal control organizations.

Please note: The independent community animal shelters and other organizations listed in this database are not accredited, inspected or endorsed by, or affiliated with, the ASPCA; this list is to be used as an informational resource.
