About SVACA - The Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority (SVACA) was formed as a Joint Powers Agency in 2000 and opened for business in 2001. Its purpose is described in its mission statement:
The mission of the SVACA is to ensure the well-being of both animals and residents in our communities by delivering high-quality, responsive and cost-effective animal control services.
Our mission is accomplished by enforcing animal control laws, promoting responsible pet ownership through outreach and education, and providing compassionate service to animals and their owners.
The need for the Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority came from the decision of the Humane Society Silicon Valley, an independent nonprofit agency, to stop providing animal control services to local communities.
The Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority serves the residents of three cities: Campbell, Monte Sereno and Santa Clara.
Our new state-of-the-art 17,000-square-foot animal control facility opened in November 2006.
