COVID-19 Updates

Out of concern for the health of our staff, volunteers, animals and the community at large – and upon the recommendation of public health officials – the Bucks County SPCA will discontinue public hours beginning on Sunday, March 15. We will, however, continue to offer limited public services which will be available by appointment only.

Our dedicated staff and volunteers will continue to provide essential animal care 7-days-a-week. We will be available to answer phone calls daily between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm to schedule appointments for limited public services as listed below.

Lahaska Shelter: 215-794-7425
Quakertown Shelter: 267-347-4674

Appointments must be made for the following services:

  • Adoptions
  • End of life services (euthanasia and cremation)
  • Lost and found pet services (call to schedule a time to reclaim a lost pet; to report lost or found pets, call either shelter or file a report via our website)
  • 24-hour emergency rescue of injured stray pets in Bucks County (24-hour hotline 215-794-7425)
  • Intakes of unweaned kittens

At this time, our shelters will not be able accept:

  • Walk-in intake of animals from the public – If you need to relinquish your pet, please call the shelter so that we can take your information and let you know if and when we will be able to help you and your pet.
  • Walk-in adoption requests
  • Walk-in donations of supplies (financial donations may be made online or by mail)

As always, you can report concerns of animal cruelty or neglect by calling 215-794-7425 or email

The Bucks County SPCA is monitoring this situation closely and taking preventive action to ensure a safe environment for the hundreds of animals at our two shelters and the people who care for them. In accordance with the CDC’s recommendations, our staff and volunteers are practicing social distancing while they conduct their work. Additionally, we are regularly disinfecting common areas and frequently touched surfaces. We ask anyone experiencing coughing, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms to stay home.

We will update our website and social media as changes are made in the days and weeks ahead. We sincerely appreciate the understanding and support of our community during these difficult times.
