George Bengal, Pennsylvania SPCA Director of Humane Law Enforcement, Loses his Life to Cancer at 69

It is with deep sadness that the Pennsylvania SPCA announces the death of George Bengal, the organization’s Director of Humane Law Enforcement, this evening, June 18, 2016, at the age of 69. He died at Holy Redeemer Hospital in Jenkintown, PA, with his wife, Carole, and daughter Lisa at his bedside.

George spent his life fighting for the justice of others. He served in Vietnam before beginning his career as a Philadelphia police officer and ultimately spending 20 years advocating for animals as a Humane Law Enforcement leader. He and his teams have saved thousands of animals, brought hundreds of criminals to justice, and been the voice for the voiceless.
