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!
October is filled with animal holidays, it is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, National Service Dog Month and National Animal Safety and Protection Month. October also has World Animal Day, Reptile Awareness Day and National Cat Day among others.
We have two very special ways for you to support animals this October. On Friday, October 17th from 4-8 the SFA Gallery at 10 Bridge Street in Frenchtown, NJ is having a pop-up Pastel Pet Portrait Party. Come by and 'adopt' a pet that doesn't need to be walked or cleaned up after, like Toto who was recently adopted from the BCSPCA and now immortalized by Peyton Petty in pastel. All proceeds benefit the Bucks County SPCA and Hunterdon Humane Society. See http://www.peytonpetty.com/ for more information.
Maybe you'd prefer to strut your stuff and show off your pet? Then come to the Bucks County SPCA Pet Parade at Autumn Alive on Saturday October 18th. Autumn Alive is an amazing town-wide party thrown by Quaktertown Alive. Following our parade we'll give out prizes for best costume, best pet and companion costume and best pet and companion look alike. Register for the fun here.
If running is more your style, you won't want to miss the Black Cat 5k and 1 Mile Fun Walk on Saturday, October 25th at 9 a.m. in Peace Valley Park, New Britain. Learn more and pre-register at http://www.blackcat5k.org/. Get healthy, have fun and support animals! All proceeds benefit BCSPCA.
Enjoy a fun and animal filled October!
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...
