The Pennsylvania SPCA’s mission is to protect animals, prevent cruelty, and improve health and quality of life for animals throughout Pennsylvania. For over 150 years, the organization has been rescuing animals from cruelty and neglect, rehabilitating them medically and behaviorally, and placing them with new loving families. The mission is brought to life through extensive programing and services that extend beyond the walls of its shelters and into the community through outreach, advocacy, and humane law enforcement work.
With help from a Grey Muzzle grant, the Pennsylvania SPCA will provide transport and medical care for senior dogs who are at risk of euthanasia in overburdened shelters and promise them a second chance to find their forever home. The grant will help dogs like little Stuffy, an 11-year-old Shih Tzu mix currently looking for her new forever family.
