Who are we?

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Israel—Tel Aviv-Yafo, is a philanthropic organization without any goal of a profit, which was founded in the year 1927, and which has been operating since then to prevent suffering and pain to animals.

The Society takes in abandoned animals and tries to find adopting homes for them. Similarly, we provide various services to the community: a veterinary clinic with subsidized prices, a boarding facility for pets, rescue and collection of animals in trouble and a department of education and guidance.

As a philanthropic organization with no intention of making a profit, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Israel—Tel Aviv-Yafo, does not receive any support from any governmental, municipal or any other official factor whatsoever. The Society is managed by a committee of volunteers who do not receive any compensation, and the funds of the Society are under the supervision of an auditor. All the funds that are at our disposal are from contributions and from the income we receive for veterinary services and boarding.

The 7,000 square meter area of our complex can house a population of more than 200 dogs and 50 cats. There is a stable with room for 12 horses and donkeys, and a "small animal corner". The complex is spacious, clean and quiet, because we want to prevent further suffering to the animals, and to get those we shelter the most comfortable conditions.

Goals and Policies
The primary goal of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Israel is to act to prevent animals from suffering, and this is especially true about abandoned animals:
 We take in all animals that are referred to us, and we never close our gates to those animals who are in need of a shelter and protection.
 Animals who are presented for adoption are given out for a purchase price. Our experience teaches us that people who buy a pet generally do not abandon it.
 The Society encourages the public to adopt pets, while emphasizing the responsibility and the obligations involved.

The experienced adoption counselors of the Society take care that each animal will go to the home that is most appropriate for it. The process includes a long talk with those who express interest in adopting a pet, matching the pet and the family by considering the needs of both sides, and guidance and direction. All this so that the animals will benefit from a second chapter in their lives that is successful and pampering. Today the Society takes care of more than 10,000 animals each year.
 According to the policy of the Society, every pet that is given out for adoption goes through neutering or castration, with the goal of decreasing the number of potential animals who would be abandoned. We see in the operations of neutering and castration, humane solutions to the problem of uncontrolled birth of unwanted puppies and kittens, when it is impossible to find homes for them. For this reason we encourage the general population to castrate and neuter their pets.
 We are partners in the struggle against cruelty and abuse of animals: experiments with animals, the stuffing of geese, animals in circuses, the fur industry, the meat industry, conveyer-belt caging of chickens on industrialized chicken farms and others. Our lobbyist operates in the Knesset and advances laws for the welfare of animals.
 The education of the younger generation, and the whole community, by use of various platforms for delivering messages that are important to the Society. In this framework we operate information booths, present lectures to different groups, cooperate with the media, run various activities and special adoption days and more.
