We seek to protect domestic and feral animals from suffering created by uncontrolled reproduction.
SBPA (Sociedad Benefactora y Protección Animal de San Carlos, A.C.) is a bi-cultural not-for-profit volunteer organization with a decades long history in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico. SBPA’s parent organization, SBPA Services, Inc., incorporated in 1995, is a 501(C)3 organization that is headquartered in Tucson, Arizona.
The mission of both SBPA Services, Inc. and its south-of-the-border non-profit, SBPA de San Carlos, is to protect animals and to alleviate the suffering created by their uncontrolled population growth. This goal is realized through a multi-faceted program that includes free spay and neuter clinics and certificates; and distribution of educational materials that promote responsible pet ownership.

The sterilization of all dogs and cats greatly helps to alleviate the suffering of animals as well as the spread of diseases to humans.
The SBPA operates solely on donations from individuals and businesses located both locally and afar. Our organized events and fundraisers are a major source of our seasonal income. These events are supported by many who volunteer their time and expertise to bring the ideas for these occasions to life. Please consider joining us this season!
