York County SPCA caring for animals, open for appointments only

The York County SPCA remains open but will be running on a light schedule due to the coronavirus outbreak, the organization said.

The SPCA is taking in stray and owner-surrendered animals by scheduled appointments only because of limited staffing. They are also strongly encouraging scheduled adoptions and fostering at this time.

During this time, the SPCA will be still regularly walking dogs, cuddling cats and continuing medical practices for all sheltered animals. Adopters can call 717-764-6109 to schedule an appointment.

 The Spay/Neuter Clinic is temporarily closed and will not be performing trap-neuter-release surgeries at this time. The nonprofit plans to reopen the clinic  March 30.
