The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Scottish SPCA) is Scotland's animal welfare charity.
We encourage kindness to animals, aim to prevent cruelty through education, investigate abuse, rescue animals in distress and find animals new homes.
As an animal welfare charity, we receive no government or lottery funding and rely on public donations to continue our vital work rescuing and rehoming Scotland's abandoned, neglected and defenceless animals.
Scottish SPCA inspectors and animal rescue officers save thousands of domestic, farm and wild animals from harm and danger every year, while our vets and staff in our wildlife and animal rescue and rehoming centres look after, rehabilitate and rehome thousands more.
Volunteers play a key role working with animals, supporting our education programme and fundraising in their local communities.
The Scottish SPCA is entirely separate from the RSPCA, which operates in England and Wales only. There is no such charity as the 'RSPCA Scotland' or 'Scottish RSPCA'
