The majority of these horses remain in our care for several months to several years.

Over the past year, we have developed a comprehensive, five-phase plan, that will double our capacity to care for abused and neglected horses at our Central PA Center at Danville, in Montour County.

We are thrilled to announce that Phase One of the Funding Our Fillies project was
selected as one of only 15 projects eligible for the ASPCA Equine Facilities Matching Grant. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of August, so we can secure a total of $20,000 with the APSCA dollar-for-dollar match, and begin construction in September. Your generosity will help us replace dilapidated fencing, create a secure environment for stallions, add one pasture and a two-stall run-in, and, ultimately, increase our capacity to rescue four additional horses.

Our rescue horses need your help! Please consider making a gift today, the PSPCA must make improvements to the equine program and facilities, in order to provide the highest level of care and quality of life for our rescue horses.

Nearly 150 years ago, the Pennsylvania SPCA was founded when Philadelphia businessman, Colonel M. Richards Mucklé, witnessed cruelty towards trolley and cart horses. Today, the PSPCA promotes the humane and compassionate treatment of all animals and remains deeply committed to the proper care of horses.
