Most of our shelter pets are dogs and cats. However, we rescue all kinds of animals including rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, rodents,birds and reptiles.
Many of our small animals are housed in a “condo” which is located amidst our cat rooms. This is where you will find our rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animals.
Our small animal room is almost always filled with rabbits and we have dedicated volunteers who cater to their specific needs. If you have questions on general rabbit care, please stop by the shelter to speak with our knowledgeable and dedicated volunteers or click on the link below.
Please note that any rabbit adopted from this facility would be contractually required to live indoors only.
If, after researching rabbit needs and care tips, you are ready to submit an application to adopt one of our shelter bunnies, please click on the link below to submit your application on line.
We have numerous horses available for adoption. These horses arrived at our organization through the hard work of our Humane Society Police Officer, Nicole Lawrence. Officer Lawrence often receives equine cruelty complaints and sometimes finds it necessary to remove horses from these neglectful situations. The York County SPCA horses are cared for off-site by the hard working, dedicated volunteers known as the York County SPCA Equine Committee.

Lucas was adopted from the York County SPCA in 2010 by Ken and Karen Smith.
Here is Lucas, now age 9, competing in AKC agility in Palmyra in April 2015. In this video Lucas is running a perfect course, with no mistakes, which is called a “clean run”.
Thank you Ken and Karen for adopting Lucas and giving him such a good life!
