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!
Looks like our boy Tuesday is just as confused as he is adorable. While he is certainly cute enough to merit a day of giving all his own, Giving Tuesday is a global celebration of generosity and a great way to make sure that your values are a part of your holiday giving.
Think about it, we have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, people around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. You can learn more at www.givingtuesday.org.
The Bucks County SPCA is a part of #GivingTuesday Bucks, a coalition of local nonprofits working together to make an impact right here in our own community. #GivingTuesday Bucks gives you the chance to contribute to the great work being done to make Bucks County a healthier, stronger, and better community for all.
While Giving Tuesday isn't really all about our kitten, we hope you'll celebrate his namesake day by making a gift to the Bucks County SPCA. With your help we can continue to give him, and animals like him, a second chance at a happy, healthy life. Send your check to BCSPCA, P.O. Box 277, Lahaska, PA 18931, or donate online at www.bcspca.org. Let us know you are part of this celebration of generosity by noting 'Giving Tuesday' on your check or online form.
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...
