The Humane Society of Napa County and SPCA – now known as “Napa Humane” – is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1972. Formed in recognition of the need for a higher standard of animal care in Napa County, our founders worked closely with the principal municipal animal services agency at the time, advocating for more humane treatment of homeless animals in their care.
Our founders began, in part, by offering a spay/neuter referral service – the first of its kind in the county – and by doing so, took its first steps in making a significant impact on the problem of pet overpopulation. Through the years, the organization grew and flourished, adding lost and found services, a shelter for adoption built adjacent to the County Animal Shelter, and humane education to its program offerings. And, in 1990, the Society acquired a completely equipped veterinary clinic on California Boulevard in Napa, converting it to a high-volume, affordable spay/neuter clinic.
Then, in 2001, the organization was notified that the Napa River Flood Control Project necessitated the razing of its shelter, along with the County’s municipal shelter. The County was able to immediately rebuild a large and modern shelter with public funds – the Humane Society modestly compensated only for its structures as we merely leased the land on which they rested.
However, this seemingly devastating blow to the organization truly resulted in strengthening it. Since the loss of the shelter, we have taken the opportunity to take a critical step back to carefully and strategically plan for our future. We have breathed new life into the organization by authoring new mission, vision, and values statements, and closely examined all fiscal and internal practices to ensure the long-term viability of Napa Humane.
Recognizing the companion animals are an important part of healthy communities, we’ve grown to consider Napa Humane a community service organization. Our programs and services are designed to address the needs of animals – and also to provide support, education, and assistance for all the people who care for and about them.
We invite you to join us as we rededicate ourselves to the important work of improving the lives of homeless animals and to celebrating the human-animal bond.
