The SPCA for Monterey County — © 2020 All rights reserved.

SPCA Monterey County is committed to safety. Before visiting, please see our changes due to COVID-19.


Please note: Based on current health and safety recommendations, we are temporarily suspending in-person programs for children, including in-person camps, classroom visits, library programs, and SPCA tours. While we are not aware of any student, volunteer, or staff member who has been exposed to COVID-19, we made this decision in an abundance of caution. We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing everyone soon.

What better way to learn all about the SPCA than to get up close and personal! Our SPCA Humane Educators would love to show you our amazing facility while you learn about animals along the way.

You will tour our Adoption Center, and sometimes our barn (barn visits are entirely dependent on barn staff), and meet many adoptable pets as you learn about safety around animals, responsible pet ownership, and much more!

  • We offer group tours and field trips throughout the school year between the hours of 11am and 4pm.
  • Due to the size of our facility, tours are restricted to 30 guests (including chaperones) total.
  • Chaperones are entirely responsible for their children. Tour guests should remain kind and respectful to all animals as well as staff.
  • Please note: animal petting is not guaranteed! Sometimes we do not have pets who are comfortable with children, large groups, etc.
  • We encourage groups to donate $25 to the SPCA, or bring along needed items such as blankets, towels, toys, and treats for all kinds of pets.

To schedule a tour, contact Darlenne at (831) 264-5434 or email us.  Exciting virtual options will be coming soon!
