Pennsylvania SPCA

The Pennsylvania SPCA (PSPCA) is the state's oldest, largest and most comprehensive animal welfare organization, and the nation's second oldest. We are so much more than a shelter. Throughout the years we have been dedicated to improving the lives of Pennsylvania's animals through our core programs, including: -A Humane Law Enforcement department that enforces state laws and responds to situations of animal cruelty and neglect; -Four shelters to house the animals we have rescued and find them a forever home; -Low-cost Veterinary Clinics providing medical and spay/neuter services; -Humane Education and Community Outreach programming to help prevent cruelty before it begins; -An In-House Shelter Hospital treating horrific cruelty and neglect cases; -A Behavior and Enrichment program to assess and train our animals and provide public training classes; and -A robust Volunteering and Fostering program providing nearly 32,000 hours of service in 2017.
