BCSPCA will be hosting our first ever Chip N’ Tag event on Saturday, June 18th from 10am-2pm. This low-cost event is co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Bureau of Dog Law and with volunteer veterinary staff from Quakertown Veterinary Clinic.
Chip N’ Tag will allow community members to have their dogs micro-chipped, vaccinated for rabies and licensed for a reasonable cost. No appointment necessary for this dog only event.
On April 23, 2015 the Bucks County SPCA, with the help of the Bensalem Police removed 32 Chihuahuas from a Bensalem residence. The dogs are safe and being well cared for at our shelters. We are also caring for 11 Chihuahuas previously removed from the residence. Clearly the circumstances leading to the ownership of so many dogs, and the removal of the dogs, were stressful for the family and the dogs alike.
The situation was brought to our attention by Bensalem animal control, and an investigation is ongoing. We’re now working cooperatively with the family of the dog owner to come to a resolution that will be good for dogs and people alike, and to return a manageable number of dogs. The family is happy for us to spay or neuter all of the dogs. As we work through this the dogs will be in our care and we will update you as they become ready for adoption. If you are interested in adopting one of these dogs, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and an application.
Remember, we are here to help. If you someone who has too many animals call us at 215.794.7425 and we can help. If you are looking for a local, low cost spay and neuter program you can contact No Nonsense Neutering, who have clinics in multiple locations, including our Upper Bucks shelter, or Animal Alliance in Lambertville, NJ.

It was an amazing year at the BCSPCA, over two thousand animals – 2,033 to be exact- got a second chance at life in 2014. Thank you to the families who opened their hearts and homes to animals in need. Our very last adoption of the year was especially heartwarming. Tommy the special needs Shih Tzu, right, is deaf and has impaired vision, but that doesn’t stop him – and it didn’t stop his new family from adopting him. Thanks to all for supporting us so we can be here for Tommy and other animals in need.
