SPCA International is committed to efficiency and transparency. We communicate with our supporters, donors and prospective donors by email, postal mail and other means, both to request contributions and to educate the public about SPCA International’s programs, important pet parenting tips, spay and neuter, animal rights and global animal welfare advocacy. These efforts support our mission to advance the safety and well-being of animals. As a result, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guidelines and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidance, SPCA International allocates a portion of our fundraising costs to program services. As a nonprofit organization that is exempt from federal taxation, we ensure our donors’ money is spent as efficiently and effectively as possible.
