The mission of the SPCA of Tompkins County, located in Ithaca, NY, is to protect companion animals. We are a no-kill shelter dedicated to preventing animal cruelty and overpopulation. We promote responsible pet stewardship by providing education, counseling and training to nurture and enhance the human-animal bond.
Each year we take in and find happy new homes here in our community for close to 2000 animals. The SPCA staff, along with over 250 annual volunteers, rehabilitate, train, and care for these animals keeping them safe, happy, and socialized until they find their new forever homes.
