San Francisco SPCA hosts spring gala 🦋 Metamorphosis on April 30

Join animal lovers at the San Francisco SPCA springtime gala, Metamorphosis, on April 30th. Metamorphosis will be the first major fundraising event at their Mission Campus. 


The San Francisco SPCA’s Metamorphosis event celebrates the healing and transformations that animals undergo at the San Francisco SPCA every day, and the many ways in which dogs and cats enhance people’s lives.


The legendary Heklina will provide the evening’s entertainment, and the SF SPCA will be honoring J. Peter Read for his lifelong commitment to animal welfare and unwavering support of the SF SPCA.

“We are excited to gather animals lovers and VIPs at this special event at our own facility to celebrate the life-changing transformations that happen every day in shelters across the country,” said Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, SF SPCA President. “This gala not only celebrates those lives and changes, but also helps make them possible.”


The April 30 event takes place at the SF SPCA’s Mission Campus, 201 Alabama Street, 6:00pm – 10:30pm, followed by a nightcap party at the new Dandelion Chocolate Factory and Salon.

This special evening will begin with cocktails and the opportunity to cuddle adoptable animals. Several of the SF SPCA’s Animal Assisted Therapy pets will also be onsite to greet guests, including LiLou, the famous therapy pig.

A gourmet vegetarian dinner will be provided by McCall’s Catering, and guests will have the opportunity to bid on several special items in a live auction.


Proceeds from Metamorphosis will provide essential support for the animals and people who rely on the SF SPCA. The event will help further the organization’s vision, to vision to create a world where animals are no longer abandoned or in shelters without medical care or a chance for survival.

Individual tickets start at $1,000 while sponsorships start at $10,000.
