Neko came to the York County SPCA with a cancerous tumor so rare, it is hardly seen in veterinary medicine. But our vet team was able to handle it, and although they had to amputate her front leg, Neko is more playful and loving than ever before. (And she's available for adoption!)
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.
