About S.P.A.R.C.


The concept of a community based non-profit shelter was born over lunch in June ,2011. The only condition sought by the initial committee members was that the new shelter would be “no kill”…meaning it would NOT euthanize animals on the basis of overcrowding.

With that commitment, experienced rescuers associated with Canine Adoption Rescue League (CARL), Tiny Loving Canines (TLC), Protect and Promote Animals (PAPA), Rock and Rescue, Inc. and other individuals started meeting on a regular basis to formulate the plans which would eventually become SPARC. Every month new issues were raised and addressed by the committee until a proposed contract was finalized and presented to the city council for vote in March, 2012. With that vote, Santa Paula became “host” to the first and only no kill animal shelter in the Ventura County, providing humane care and treatment for the stray and abandoned animals of the city as well as educational, spay/neuter, vaccination, licensing and other services. Pet over population is a community problem and SPARC presents a humane, community-based solution.
