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!
Cat-mas is a special time of year at the Bucks County SPCA. During the 12 days of Cat-Mas (December 11-23) twelve (or more) special cats will be featured and available for adoption for just $12. "Cats think that every day is Cat-mas" says Executive Director Anne Irwin, "and we want to bring some of that special cat-itude to the holidays this year. There are many reasons to adopt an adult cat . You can tell what their temperament and energy level are like, and they are generally past the curtain climbing, ankle attacking stage. We've even identified some feline 'pairings' this Cat-mas to showcase cats that get along particularly well, in case people want to adopt two cats. "
All cats adopted from the BCSPCA are spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and have tested negative for both FIV and Feline Leukemia. The cats of Cat-mas will be featured on the Bucks County SPCA's website, www.bcspca.org, and Facebook Page, www.facebook.com/buckscospca, as well as in both of the BCSPCA's shelters located at 1665 Street Road, Lahaska and 60 Reservoir Road in Quakertown, PA.

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...
