Mission

Bella SPCA is a non-profit
501(c)(3) organization based in Oklahoma City created to assist
low-income, elderly or terminally ill pet owners with the cost of veterinary
care when it cannot be afforded, and to provide foster homes and find permanent
loving homes for rescued animals.Every year thousands of animals are euthanized or sent home to die because the people who love them cannot financially absorb the cost of veterinary care. Stray and abandoned animals have even fewer options when brought into a clinic or veterinary office with no owner to pay for their care. At Bella SPCA, we believe every animal deserves to receive the best possible care regardless of the owner’s ability to pay. When an owner brings an animal into a clinic for care and cannot afford the cost, the attending veterinarian can contact Bella for assistance. If assistance is given, the owner must agree to volunteer 8 hours of their time at either the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter or their local shelter. We do our best to find foster homes for stray or abandoned animals and they are cared for with no stipulation attached. We also require that every animal sponsored by us be spayed/neutered and micro chipped. Micro chipping is an inexpensive way to reunite lost pets with the owners who are responsible for them. And every animal adopted into a loving home by Bella is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heart worm tested, and micro chipped to give them the best possible start in their new life.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1600 animals adopted into homes each year
$60,000 funded in veterinary care through Low Income Assistance Program
750 animals vaccinated/micro chipped through Low Cost Vaccine Outreach
Humane education in local schools

We use a very well organized core group of volunteers to carry out our goals. Thanks to their efforts we have been able to achieve the goals set forth by the Board of Directors of The Bella Foundation, SPCA.

We are able to house and care for upwards of 300 animals in our foster homes.
We have schedule bi-monthly vaccine outreaches with an average count of 125 animals.
We have provided $60,000 in funding for veterinary through our Low Income Assistance Program for the past 2 years.
We are educating children on humane animal education in local schools.

Our next goal is the design and construction of a facility. By having a free standing facility our impact in the community will grow exponentially.
