The Israeli Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Ramat Gan and Vicinity
The Israeli Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Ramat Gan and Vicinity was founded in 1944 by Mrs. Greta Biran. Since the society’s establishment, its members have cared for hundreds of abandoned and neglected animals, providing for their medical care and daily welfare while searching to find them loving, adoptive homes.
The Israeli Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Ramat Gan and Vicinity is a no-kill animal rescue. This is a unique, guiding principle of the organization.
Animals of all ages and conditions arrive at our shelter, and with this important principle we grant them a new hope for a better life, knowing that they will never be abandoned again.
Tasha, a 12-year-old blind dog, arrived at our shelter when her owners were no longer interested in raising her. Tasha will be at a foster home until she finds a permanent home that will accept her old age. For Andy, a wonderful dog that was found chained to the shelter’s door after experiencing terrible abuse, the shelter’s staff found a trainer who will prepare Andy for life in a home. Many baby kittens who are left in card boxes outside the shelter find hope and devotion at our shelter, where we pray for their survival against all odds.
In addition to the shelter’s diverse activities, the organization prioritizes the values of compassion, tolerance, and assistance for those in need. We highly emphasize community involvement, education and awareness activities, and assistance to needy populations.
Many students volunteer at the shelter through community service programs and scholarships. They help care for the animals, exercise the dogs and socialize with the cats. The organization also provides educational activities that focus on our relationship as humans with animals. These activities are performed at schools and youth groups, as well as special education institutions, or any place where animal interaction and therapy can be of assistance.
The Organization’s Vision & Goals
Our mission and goals are embodied in our four founding principles:
The Israeli Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Ramat Gan and Vicinity is a no- kill animal rescue

The Israeli Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Ramat Gan and Vicinity ensures genuine concern for animals and constantly works to improve their living conditions
