Our goal is to provide you with prompt, factual information and serve as a resource to newsroom personnel. Our Media/Public Relations Department is available seven days a week to respond to inquiries from local, regional and national print, broadcast and online media outlets. In addition to providing information on breaking news stories and current events, we have a variety of staff available to provide expert commentary on a wide-range of animal welfare related topics including veterinary care, humane law enforcement, animal adoptions, animal behavior and training and issues in animal sheltering among others.
To effectively facilitate media requests at the Pennsylvania SPCA, please refer to these guidelines:
- Media must arrange all interviews and photo shoots in advance through the Media/Public Relations Department.
- To ensure safety and appropropriate sensitivity to staff and clients, all reporters, film crews and photographers must always be accompanied by a staff person while on the Pennsylvania SPCA campus.
- Media will be met by a staff member in the lobby or specified location and escorted to the appropriate location.
- Staff, volunteers and clients of the Pennsylvania SPCA who agree to be interviewed or filmed must provide consent.
