Sacramento Shelter Pets Alive is always accepting donations and looking for new ways to enrich the lives of the dogs in our program. Your donation goes DIRECTLY toward helping the dogs! SSPA has several ways for you to contribute to our life-saving work.

SSPA is a charitable nonprofit and your donation is tax-deductible. Our federal tax ID is 82-2733602.

Other ways to give:

  • Contribute through Venmo.

  • Contribute through Give Lively.

  • Shop SSPA merchandise! Let your dollars do double duty! You can support SSPA’s life-saving mission while you shop. It can’t get any easier or more fun! Our online store offers many options so that you can get the right style, color and design for the person you’re buying for – whether that’s you or your loved ones. Shop now to help save lives and remember to check back periodically for new designs and sizes.

  • We also have an Amazon wishlist. Note: If you shop on Amazon, please consider shopping through AmazonSmile. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases.

  • Don’t forget we have several Special Events throughout the year! Make sure to check out our Special Events page for upcoming events. We are always looking for raffle items and fundraising partnerships, please email to connect with our team.

  • Vehicles for Charity: Do you have a vehicle sitting around? A boat, camper or RV you are ready to let go of but aren’t sure what to do with? Do you not want to deal with the hassle of selling them? Well you can now donate them through Vehicles for Charity even if they aren’t running in honor of SSPA. Your donation will help us continue our efforts to enrich the lives of shelter dogs. All you need to do is fill out this form and the vehicle will be picked up within 48 hours with no upfront cost or DMV paperwork.
