SAVE: Saving Animal Victims with Empathy

SAVE (Saving Animal Victims with Empathy) is DCSPCA's program to care for animals who have been subjected to abuse and/or neglect, and provide evidence so that humane law offenders may be prosecuted.


We provide all of the animals' veterinary care, as well as housing, nutrition, and emotional support. We also collect evidence that is used in the prosecution of offenders.


Once an animal has recovered from their abuse, we find them the loving home that they deserve.
