Your Donation Matters


Many people think that the SF SPCA is a chapter of a national organization. It isn't. There is no national SPCA. And, as an independent nonprofit, we don't receive any government funding. We rely solely on the generous support of our donors, like you, to make the lives of thousands of animals and the people who love them better, safer and full of love.

Here's your chance to make a real difference in the lives of the cats and kittens who come to the SF SPCA each year in search of a loving home. Of the 5,200 animals who come through our doors each year, more than 70 percent need medical care, which adds up. But without this medical attention, these animals would not be saved.

When you adopt one of these amazing café cats – the friendliest and most loving kitties you’ll find anywhere- the proceeds of your bid will go to the Meaningful Medicine Fund and help thousands of animals receive the medical attention they need before finding their perfect person.

The winning bidder of each auction will be given the first opportunity to adopt that cat. All adopters will be subject to a thorough adoption screening and must be qualified to adopt, regardless of auction outcome. Winning bidders who are not qualified to adopt will not be responsible for their bid and the opportunity to adopt will go to the next highest bid and so on.

Happy bidding!

He is the Boss and his name is Hugo. This dapper, fluffy, light orange tabby boy is a sight to behold. He is a big fellow who has a big head and rather small ears on him. His head is big because he just so smart! Hugo is a professional lap warmer. It is his favorite place to be on a chilly night. He hasn’t been interesting in playing since that requires him getting off your lap. So far he hasn’t purred for us so you might be the first to hear it. You will get to experience a ton of love coming from this guy. Come by and get your lap warmed by Hugo today.
