Small Animals

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.

Rabbit Care Information

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.


There are numerous horses available for adoption through the York County SPCA. Please e-mail for more information.

You must complete an application and be granted approval before you can meet with any of our animals. You can save time by completing an application ahead of your visit to the shelter. You can also complete an application in person  (applications are available at the reception desk). Please view our Adoption Application Expectations before submitting an online application.
