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!
We are currently accepting applications for part time positions at both locations. These jobs are for kennel work and various office duties. A driver’s license is required. Duties include and are not limited to kennel cleaning, animal handling and responding to after hours emergencies. Office duties include and are not limited to answering phones, admitting animals and screening for adoptions. Customer service skills a must. Part time hours include weekends and holidays with the potential for more hours. We offer competitive pay.

On April 18th, Bucks County SPCA Humane Officers and staff removed dozens of animals from a home where conditions were so deplorable that it was difficult for responders to breathe. Dogs, cats and kittens, and an assortment of other animals including chickens and baby chicks, other small and large birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, and reptiles were brought to BCSPCA shelters in Lahaska and Quakertown where veterinarians were waiting to treat them. Some had been living leg deep in waste, and many were found with no access to water. Almost all of the animals have now been legally surrendered to the Bucks County SPCA. The others will remain safely with us until their situations can also be resolved. To read and see more, please click for Philadelphia Inquirer, Intelligencer/Courier Times, and Fox29 coverage. Our heartiest thanks go out to shelter friends for donations of supplies and kind words of encouragement. Tough situations like these are made so much easier with all of you in our corner. We'll keep you posted as the case moves forward...
Every spring, concerned citizens begin finding helpless newborn and very young kittens who are then brought to us sometimes by the dozens. By caring for some of these kittens for up to 8 weeks as a foster parent, you can help us give them a strong start to a happy and healthy life. Please consider joining the Foster Kitten Team to ensure that this year’s Kitten Season has more happy endings than ever before. Special thanks to "Zoey" and "Petey" Barbera for their sponsorship of this year's program! For more information, please contact Carol or Lisé at the Lahaska shelter or Christy at the Quakertown shelter. Purrfect!
We are pleased to announce that Team Capital Bank is on board for the second year in a row as the Bucks County SPCA's Volunteer Program Sponsor! We'd like to thank Trish Markel and everyone involved for their continued enthusiasm and support. Our volunteers help us in so many ways, and TCB's generosity will ensure that the vital Volunteer Program continues to have all the resources it needs. Team BCSPCA says thanks again to the wonderful folks at Team Capital Bank for caring about our community, our organization, and our animals.
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...
