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.
