About Bucks County SPCA
The Bucks County SPCA assists animals in need and prevents suffering through rescue, rehoming, cruelty investigation and prosecution, and community outreach.
With our community’s support we have grown and expanded, now operating two open-admission, no-time-limit shelters in Lahaska and Quakertown. We also provide extensive humane investigation and education programs. The Bucks County SPCA works to keep animals in their homes and out of the shelter system by offering temporary boarding for pets referred by a social service agency during emergencies and donating pet supplies to food pantries. We are an independent locally-supported nonprofit, and not part of a national organization or county government.
