Date:1/28/2009

State-of-the-Art, Nonprofit Hospital Will Provide High-Quality Care to Homeless Animals and the Public, Regardless of Income

SF/SPCA to Work with Other Groups, Public, to Spay/Neuter 12,000 Cats and Dogs in 2009 -- Double the Number of Previous Years

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The San Francisco SPCA today announced the opening of the Leanne B. Roberts Animal Care Center, the new home of its nonprofit Veterinary Hospital, Spay/Neuter Clinic and Shelter Medicine Program. The SF/SPCA has provided charitable veterinary care since 1924, and the new Leanne Roberts Center, located next door, will dramatically increase the number of animals -- with or without homes -- receiving care.

The full-service, accredited hospital will host an open house for the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 31. Attendees can participate in tours of the new facility, various activities for children, a cat claw clipping clinic and more.

In addition to supporting the Veterinary Hospital as customers, the public can also contribute to the capital campaign. Seventy-three percent of the Leanne Roberts Center's costs have already been raised through private donations, and the organization aims to raise an additional $7.9 million in philanthropic support to finalize the building's capital campaign.

The nonprofit hospital will offer competitive rates for routine check-ups, vaccinations and prescriptions, spay/neuter procedures, common surgeries and emergency care during normal working hours (8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily). It will also continue to provide free care to homeless and shelter animals, and will work with qualified, low-income guardians to ensure that their cats and dogs receive the necessary care.

In addition to its Primary Care Veterinary Hospital, the Center will include The SF/SPCA's Shelter Medicine and Foster Care Departments, housing for homeless animals, th
