Adams County SPCA

The Adams County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a private, non-profit, 501 (c)(3) charitable organization that serves Adams County and functions under a governing board elected by the membership. Its purposes are to provide effective means of preventing abuse of animals, to assist in the enforcement of public laws enacted for the protection of animals, and to house and find homes for stray and unwanted animals. We operate the only Animal Shelter that accepts animals from all Adams County municipalities. At our Shelter, stray, abandoned, injured or unwanted animals are cared for and made available for adoption. In addition to operating the Animal Shelter we also employ a humane officer to assist in the enforcement of Pennsylvania's anti-cruelty laws. We participate in a radio-broadcast "lost and found" pets service. As a public service, we provide low-cost rabies clinics twice a year, we regularly take pets on visits to area nursing homes to provide special recreation for the residents, and we provide educational presentations for youth organizations on resposible care of animals. We also maintain a pet cemetery where owners may purchase burial plots for their pets. The SPCA receives no federal funding and little state funding. Most of the money to operate the Animal Shelter and to provide its other services must be raised locally through adoption fees, annual membership dues, tax-deductible donations, memorial gifts and bequests, voluntary contributions from municipalities and the county, and through fundraising projects like the annual Loyalty Walk and "$100-A-Day" Raffle.
