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.

Adoption fee for dogs includes a microchip.  It is an additional $15 for cats.

Every cat and dog adopted receives our exclusive 10 Day Adoption Health Guarantee. This provides your pet complete coverage for a wide variety of common canine and feline illnesses. Our goal is to provide you and your pet with the best possible health care and to avoid adoption returns due to rare but simple and treatable illnesses.



Out of State Adoptions

We do allow out of state adoptions.  If you live outside the state of Pennsylvania and would like to adopt one of our animals, please fill out our Adoption Application and email it to info@lancasterspca.org with the subject line "Out of State Adoption." All transport arrangements and fees will be the responsibility of the adopter.
