Beginning a Second Century of Service to the Animals and People of our Community...
The Bucks County SPCA employs all available means to prevent and alleviate the suffering of animals including the enforcement and improvement of the state's anti-cruelty laws, the education of our community about animal welfare issues, and the sheltering and humane care of stray and unwanted animals and animals who come to us as the result of cruelty investigations. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and are not a branch of any national or local Humane Society or SPCA. We accept any domestic animal at no cost to municipalities or individuals, and our work is supported by your donations rather than by tax dollars. We are proud to serve the animals and people of our community and deeply grateful for the generosity that makes our work possible. Please visit our website often to learn about the services we provide, to see what’s new at the shelter, to meet our animals available for adoption, and to find out how you can help. Thank you for stopping by!

Please note: Petfinder is currently experiencing some difficulties and all of our animals are not being displayed in the Petfinder viewer on the page http://www.bcspca.org/general/meet-our-animals.html. Please scroll down the page a little bit and you will find our wonderful adoptable animals displayed in a different viewer. Thank you and sorry about the inconvenience.
Mark your calendars and join us for one or both of the holiday open houses coming up at our shelters. Take a tour, meet our volunteers and staff, visit the animals, enjoy light refreshments and have a photo taken with Santa Paws.
In Lahaska we will be featuring animal themed art by students from the Solebury School. Awarding winning artist Pamela M. Miller will display some of her pet portraits. At the Upper Bucks Shelter art by students at United Friends School and a craft table from our friends at Success Rehab will be featured, along with an a cappella performance of carols by Harmonium, an 8 girl singing group from Pennsbury High School. We hope you will join us for these festive evenings.

If you want to give gifts that go beyond the ordinary this year how about transforming a life or two?
You can't buy the gifts of love, loyalty and joy - but you can adopt them! Treat your family this holiday season by adopting a pet. Your new friend will bring more joy, love and loyalty to your family than any other gift. Contented purring, kneading paws, wagging tails and heart melting gazes are gifts you'll enjoy year round.
For Your Friends and Family:
Know someone who has recently adopted a pet? Before buying that plush doggie bed, or fancy food bowl ask yourself what they really need for their four footed companion. Maybe a pre-paid vet visit would be appreciated, or a six month supply of food. Pets can be expensive and sometimes a practical gift can mean more than a flashy one.
For the Future:
Donate to the Bucks County SPCA and give the gift of hope for a better future to thousands of animals each year. Animals come here from situations that range from unfortunate to heartbreaking and each one is given the chance to find a new and better life. It can take time for many animals, particularly those coming from bad situations, to warm up and show their stellar personalities. But thanks to your support we can give them a safe and comfortable place to make that transition. It doesn't happen overnight - for some it can take years - but when that transformation happens it is pure magic. Suddenly a whole new and better life opens up not only for the animals but also for the people who open their hearts and homes to them.
While many shelters share a common name, such as SPCA or Humane Society, they are most often independent of one another. The Bucks County SPCA is not a branch or chapter of the ASPCA, the PSPCA, or any other national, state, or local animal welfare organization. Donations sent to national organizations who regularly advertise on television do not trickle down to the Bucks County SPCA. Only donations made specifically to the Bucks County SPCA benefit us. If you would like to support your local animals and your local shelters in Lahaska and Quakertown, we hope you'll think about the Bucks County SPCA!
What Is the Dog Law?
Dog Law affects all of Pennsylvania's dog owners. People call the Bucks County SPCA sometimes and ask what we can do about a dog that runs loose frequently. Could we fine the people? Allowing a dog to run loose is a violation of the Dog Law. It’s time for a short course...
Bucks County SPCA's Puppy and Dog Obedience Classes are happening right now!. Register online and start class within the week with this "no wait" class. Our dog classes are open enrollment which means you register for class, attend an orientation class without your dog (available three days a week) and get started on the next day we hold class. We have three days/times to pick from at two locations. Puppy class is held once weekly every week. Go to our Public Class page to read all about it and register today!
Anyone who adopts a cat from us is lucky, but our new kitty "kiss-counts" are upping the ante.
From now through Christmas anyone who adopts a cat 6 months or older will have the choice of paying the traditional adoption fee ($50) or drawing from our "kiss-count" box. You could get a "donation of your choice" kiss-count or an adoption fee as low as $10! What are you waiting for? Stop by either of our shelters and double your luck today.
