The animals listed below entered one of our two facilities as lost pets (strays). Click on the picture to determine whether the animal is at our Lahaska or Quakertown facility. They will be listed on these pages for the duration of the stray hold periods explained below. If an owner does not come forward, the pet will be evaluated by our medical and behavior staff for placement. View animals available for adoption here.
How long are stray animals held?
Pennsylvania State Law requires licensed kennels such as BCSPCA to hold unlicensed dogs for 48 hours. We choose to hold lost dogs for a longer period of 5 days to allow an owner an extended opportunity to identify and reclaim their animal.
If you believe one of the animals listed here is your pet:
Contact BCSPCA as soon as possible by phone or in person, during regular business hours.
We take our role of reuniting pets and owners very seriously. To be sure we are returning a pet to their rightful owner, we will ask for the following information:
- Photo ID showing current address
- Proof of ownership such as current pictures, adoption or ownership papers, microchip or other registration ID and/or veterinary records
There will be a reclaim fee that depends on the amount of time your pet has been in our care. In addition to being sheltered and cared for, your pet may have been vaccinated, dewormed, and tested for diseases like heartworm or feline leukemia. Illnesses and injuries may have been treated. We want you pet to get home to you as soon as possible! Payment options for reclaim fees are available.
