The Bucks County SPCA performs a vital public service in assuming responsibility for approximately 3,500 to 4,500 lost, injured or unwanted animals yearly. We admit any animal brought into the shelter although we cannot guarantee it's adoption. We routinely pick up injured strays from all over the Bucks County region with our emergency service. It operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive at the shelter.
