Rabbits Too

Most of our pets are dogs and cats but we rescue all kinds of animals including rabbits and birds. These wonderful rabbits need a new home and can make great pets.
Our adorable rabbits are housed in our small animal room adjacent to cat rooms. We have volunteers who cater to the needs of the rabbits housed at our facility. If you are considering a rabbit for adoption or have questions on general rabbit care, please stop by the shelter to speak with our knowledgeable and dedicated volunteers.

Foster Homes Needed
Our kennels are full and we want to expand our Dog Foster program, and we need your help. Can you provide a temporary home for a dog while we search for their forever family? Some dogs do not thrive in the kennel environment so your home may make the dog more adoptable to potential families. And by keeping the dog in your home, we have space to house an additional dog in the kennel.
Please contact Lisa Belsinger for more information @ 717-764-6109 ext 129 or lbelsinger @ycspca.org
