The center stands as a supportive pillar for pet owners, offering resources like behavioral helplines, financial aid for veterinary services, and emergency boarding. Championing positive reinforcement training, the East Bay SPCA rejects harmful dominance-based methods, promoting more humane approaches.

Recognizing the educational potential of pets, East Bay SPCA offers guidance for classroom animal care and diverse educational programs. The center advises against the training of dogs for aggressive behaviors and supports the appropriate care of outdoor-living dogs, in line with ethical practices.
FAAS's commitment to animal welfare is exemplified by its impressive track record: annually, it successfully saves an average of 97% of nearly 1,000 animals that enter the shelter. This achievement reflects the shelter's innovative programs, strong community partnerships, and the unwavering support of its passionate volunteers and donors.
At the core of PHS/SPCA's mission is a commitment to provide a sanctuary for animals in need. The organization prides itself on a remarkable achievement: ensuring 100% adoption of all healthy, adoptable dogs and cats that come into their care. This milestone is a reflection of their unwavering dedication to every animal that crosses their threshold.
Beyond adoption, PHS/SPCA’s Hope Program plays a crucial role in nurturing animals back to health. This charitably funded initiative extends a lifeline to thousands of pets that arrive sick, injured, or too young to fend for themselves. Through this program, countless lives are not only saved but are also given a chance for a loving home.
