A NEW LEASH ON LIFE Welcome to the York County SPCA

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.


The York County SPCA, York County's nonprofit animal shelter, has hired for two key leadership positions: Canine Behavior and Enrichment Manager Katie Keith and Director of Philanthropy Chad Myers. These positions are critical to addressing the increased needs of the organization and the community it supports.

February is National Pet Dental Health Month. In honor of this month, we would like to share Ralph's story of a stomatitis diagnosis and treatment to get his smile back.
