Our Mission
The Bucks County SPCA assists animals in need and prevents suffering through rescue, rehoming, cruelty investigation and prosecution, and community outreach.

For more than a century, our work has been funded by compassionate animal lovers like you. We are proud to have achieved and sustained an average Live Release Rate of 93% (above the 90% no-kill shelter benchmark). This is a considerable increase from 2015 when our lifesaving rate averaged only 63%.

This significant increase in lifesaving is the result of expanding our services for pets, the addition of a top-notch veterinary team, and major improvements to both facilities in recent years.

Our two shelters and network of trained foster homes serve thousands of animals every year. We provide a welcoming adoption process, re-homing assistance for people unable to continue caring for a pet, lost and found services, animal cruelty investigation, affordable end-of life-services for pets, and much more.

Our skilled veterinary team performs thousands of medical exams and surgeries. Each animal’s journey begins with a thorough intake exam and continues with individualized care. All animals are assessed for behavior and provided with enrichment and training during their shelter stay. Our clinics also offer subsidized neuter/spay for cats and kittens, friendly or feral.

Once cleared for adoption, animals don’t wait long to find new homes – typically less than a week! We have great success placing seniors, special needs, and farm animals.

The Bucks County SPCA is a community resource for pets and people – from Bristol to Quakertown and everywhere in between. We receive no federal, state, or local tax dollars, nor do we receive funding from the ASPCA or PSPCA. We rely almost entirely on private donations. When you give to the Bucks County SPCA you can be confident that your gift is making an immediate and lasting difference in the lives of local animals who need it most.
