Tales for Tails
This event is for kids in 1st-6th grade who are interested in reading to our resident dogs. Kids have the opportunity to sit outside the dog’s kennels as they read a book, or a few, to them. We launched this first in mid-August and the results were so touching. The dogs were calm, quiet, attentive to the children. Some were even relaxed enough to take a nap. Time slots for each reading event are two hours and are come and go as you please. Bring a book to read to the dogs and a blanket or towel to sit on, or borrow any of these items from us. View the above link to sign up for the remaining 2018 Tales for Tails events. Please sign up each child you are bringing in their own slot. Further questions? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 717-764-6109 ext. 143.

Last week, the York County SPCA reached a milestone. We are proud to tell you that all of our medical services are now AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) accredited. This means that our spay/neuter Surgical Center, our shelter’s veterinary wing (where we care for our shelter pets), and our low cost medical assistance program known as CARMA all adhere to the highest level of veterinary excellence. The York County SPCA’s medical services earned accreditation following a rigorous review of our veterinary protocols, medical equipment, facility and client services.
The York County SPCA is always striving to be the best we can be and we know that AAHA accreditation of our medical services will assure our community that we provide the best possible care to our valued spay/neuter clients, our beloved shelter pets and our CARMA program participants.
Our entire medical team has worked extraordinarily hard to make this challenging dream a reality. Specifically, we would like to acknowledge Dr. Kimberly Mann and Dr. Natalie Weekes for their dedication, expertise and overall awesomeness!
