Adoptions & Lifesaving


Thank you for considering adoption from the Pennsylvania SPCA while you are looking to add a new member to your family.SDW_3025

Why should I adopt a pet? When you adopt, you are saving the life of an animal! Each year tens of thousands of animals enter Pennsylvania’s animal shelters. By choosing to adopt you are saving a homeless animal who desperately needs a second chance at a loving home.

Located in North Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania SPCA headquarters has plenty of parking and a wide selection of pets to choose from.  Please follow the link for more information on adoption policies and procedures.
