The Delaware County SPCA, established in 1911, is dedicated to intervention and prevention policies that protect and improve the health and welfare of companion animals and support the people who care for them. As of July 2012, the Delaware County SPCA is a lifesaving organization, striving to save every adoptable animal that enters our Adoption Center. In 2011, we adopted out 2,808 animals in to forever homes. Our goal for 2012 is to find 3,100 animals forever homes. Aside from placing animals in to caring homes, we fulfill our lifesaving mission by preventing homelessness in and around Delaware County through low-cost and subsidized veterinary and community services. Additional resources are devoted to preventing animal cruelty in Delaware County through our Humane Investigations and Humane Education programs. To view our adoptable animals or learn more about our lifesaving programs, visit www.delcospca.org.
We want you to share our mission with your friends and family. Create your own fundraising page to tell your favorite story of a rescued animal or why this cause is important to you or someone you love. You might also use your page as a memorial for a beloved lost pet, in lieu of birthday, holiday or wedding gifts or in honor of your best furry friend. For more information on which events we are hosting that you can fundraise specifically for, look for "Events" on the right-hand side of this page.
The Delaware County SPCA is a 501c3 non-profit, charitable organization registered with the Pennsylvania Department of State. We are not affiliated with any local, state or federal agency or any other SPCA or humane group. Our work is supported entirely by private donations from people just like you. Yearly, thousands of animals pass through our facility or are treated by our dedicated staff, which includes sick and injured animals. This humanitarian work can be expensive. The resources are available to help sick and injured animals because people just like you give generously. Please help us be prepared the next time an animal needs help and a new home. Thank you for your support.
