About Us


Serving Lancaster County, Pennsylvania the Lancaster County SPCA exists to provide shelter, humane care and adoptions of stray and unwanted animals and to animals that come to us as the result of owner surrender and cruelty investigations.  As a non-profit organization and 501(c)(3) we are not a branch of any national or local Humane Society or SPCA. We accept any domestic animal from individuals, while primarily being supported through public donations.
