The mission of the Global Federation of Sanctuaries is to continuously improve the quality of care for animals requiring sanctuary. To this end, we accredit sanctuaries based on worldwide standards of excellence, facilitate operational and financial support and enhance effectiveness, recognition, and collaboration.

The South Florida SPCA is pleased to be able to say that we are a GFAS sanctioned animal rescue (we aren’t a sanctuary) . With the oversight of the Global Federation of Sanctuaries you can be assured that our standards of care and business management pratices are being upheld to a higher standard.
