The York County SPCA is dedicated to providing long-term human and animal services to residents of York County through programs that find permanent, loving homes for displaced and stray animals, help control animal population growth, investigate and prosecute cruelty offenders, and educate the general public about animal wellness and safety.

Sometimes, we have dogs who really embrace the best and not so best of their breed. If we cannot find a home for them within our adopter community, we call on fosters and rescue partners who specialize in that breed. Such was the case for our oh so special Miss Daisy.

The spaying or neutering of dogs and cats is recommended for a number of different reasons. These include health benefits for the individual animal, as well as benefits for the community as a whole. Spay/neuter programs help control animal overpopulation, reduce the burden on animal shelters in the area, and decrease the number of animals euthanized.

You care about animal welfare just as much as we do. So, we are bringing you into the conversation. Our quarterly virtual event, Community Conversations: Demystifying Animal Welfare Practices, will be a virtual gathering of York County SPCA staff and community members to discuss important, complex topics related to animal welfare practices.

VIDEO SPOTLIGHT A Year of Transformation

2020 was a year of transformation for the York County SPCA, and we could not have accomplished it without the generous support of our adopters, donors, volunteers, dedicated staff, spay/neuter clinic clients, and community. Hear how the changes we've implemented have increased the number of animals we save, simplified the adoption process, and improved the operations of our shelter. And it is all thanks to you! We are deeply grateful for your support.
