I live near the Bucks County SPCA’s Lahaska facility and my pets come from there. Why should I donate to a Campaign raising money for a shelter in Upper Bucks?
A donation to the Centennial Campaign is an investment in the future of the Bucks County SPCA as an organization in service to all of Bucks County.
The Campaign is not just about a new shelter in Upper Bucks. Campaign funds will go toward the maintenance and expansion of our highly regarded animal welfare programs, including our humane education program, our crisis response program, and our cruelty investigation and prosecution program. With more resources, we can continue to advance the type of program innovation that has been our hallmark for almost 100 years.
In addition, the space and flexibility of a second shelter in Upper Bucks will benefit our existing shelter in Lahaska by allowing us to:
- Better handle the challenging cases involving multiple animals that are increasingly facing us
- Care for and house animals at two locations rather than only one, giving them a chance to find their forever families faster
- Spend more time caring for our animals and less time in transit between distant areas of Bucks County
- More comprehensively address County-wide animal overpopulation issues that impact the Lahaska facility
I already give to the ASPCA. How much of my donation reaches you?
Not a penny. It might surprise you, but the Bucks County SPCA is not a chapter or branch of the ASPCA or any other national or state animal welfare organization. We are entirely independent. To show your support for local animals and your local shelters in Lahaska and Quakertown, please make sure that your gifts are specifically directed to the Bucks County SPCA.
