Make a Difference

Friends of SFACC is a registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit and is an all-volunteer-run organization. Our federal EIN (employer identification number for tax-exempt verification) is 94-3371620.

Your gift makes it possible to provide programs, supplies, and awareness of the services provided to animals and people in San Francisco by the Dept. of Animal Care & Control. Donating to Friends of SFACC directly (rather than to the city fund for the shelter), ensures that the funds go toward helping the animals in ways that are outside the scope of the City budget. Gifts of any size make a difference. We thank you for your generous support!

Your donation to Friends of SFACC directly supports these critical programs.

  • Behavior & Training staff, who evaluate animals for adoption, train volunteers, and coordinate fosters for mother dogs/puppies
  • Low-cost rabies vaccine/microchip clinics for the public, held at SFACC (temporarily on hold)
  • Grants for local rescue/adoption partners
  • Emergency medical procedures for abused, neglected, or injured animals that require specialized care beyond what SFACC veterinarians can provide
  • Equipment and supplies not covered by the city budget that improve the quality of the animals’ lives in the stressful shelter environment, such as orthopedic dog beds, AstroTurf in the shelter dog yard, neonatal kitten supplements, and toys and treats for all the animals
  • Staff & volunteer appreciation events and special workshops
