On April 18th, Bucks County SPCA Humane Officers and staff removed dozens of animals from a home where conditions were so deplorable that it was difficult for responders to breathe. Dogs, cats and kittens, and an assortment of other animals including chickens and baby chicks, other small and large birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, and reptiles were brought to BCSPCA shelters in Lahaska and Quakertown where veterinarians were waiting to treat them. Some had been living leg deep in waste, and many were found with no access to water. Almost all of the animals have now been legally surrendered to the Bucks County SPCA. The others will remain safely with us until their situations can also be resolved. To read and see more, please click for Philadelphia Inquirer, Intelligencer/Courier Times, and Fox29 coverage. Our heartiest thanks go out to shelter friends for donations of supplies and kind words of encouragement. Tough situations like these are made so much easier with all of you in our corner. We'll keep you posted as the case moves forward...
We are pleased to announce that Team Capital Bank is on board for the second year in a row as the Bucks County SPCA's Volunteer Program Sponsor! We'd like to thank Trish Markel and everyone involved for their continued enthusiasm and support. Our volunteers help us in so many ways, and TCB's generosity will ensure that the vital Volunteer Program continues to have all the resources it needs. Team BCSPCA says thanks again to the wonderful folks at Team Capital Bank for caring about our community, our organization, and our animals.
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!
Every spring, concerned citizens begin finding helpless newborn and very young kittens who are then brought to us sometimes by the dozens. By caring for some of these kittens for up to 8 weeks as a foster parent, you can help us give them a strong start to a happy and healthy life. Please consider joining the Foster Kitten Team to ensure that this year’s Kitten Season has more happy endings than ever before. Special thanks to "Zoey" and "Petey" Barbera for their sponsorship of this year's program! For more information, please contact Carol or Lisé at the Lahaska shelter or Christy at the Quakertown shelter. Purrfect!

Cali, a bichon frise, was adopted by Ron and Millie Edmond in December of 2009 from BCSPCA. Cali was 1 of over 100 Commercial Kennel Breeding Dogs that were offered "Safe Haven" after Pennsylvania's new kennel laws had taken effect earlier that year. Ron and Millie were no strangers to our shelter, they had adopted their miniature poodle, Farrah, a few years before. When it was discovered by our veterinarian that Cali had multiple mammary tumors, (as did many of the females from the commercial kennel dogs that resided with us), Millie had no fears of adopting her. Millie is also a breast cancer survivor.
For a limited time only, donors making a minimum $20 gift to our Centennial Campaign will receive a very special token of our appreciation – a dog or cat charm bracelet designed by local artist Pearl Mintzer. The unique charms showcase BCSPCA alumni animals and are wonderful tributes to them and to shelter animals everywhere. Bracelets are available at our Lahaska shelter. (Sorry, we aren’t able to mail them.) Celebrate your love of animals and your support for our work with our “charming” dogs and cats!
They have finally arrived! Premier Busy Buddy products like the Kibble Nibble and Tug a Jug as well as Fun Kitty Egg Cercizer and Treat and Twist have hit the shelves. These are a few of the enrichment products the Bucks County SPCA plans to offer for sale to the public. The Kibble Nibble was a favorite of Tony the Lurcher, and an intregel part of keeping him mentally stimulated. Tony spent one year and almost four months at our shelter while waiting for his court case to go to trial. "Enrichment toys keep dogs and cats busy while providing an outlet for their natural drives like foraging, scavaging and hunting", says CPDT-KA certified trainer Diane Herstine. "There is nothing like a tired pet at the end of the day and food dispensing toys can help expend mental energy." Check out our selection of cat and dog busy toys today!
