Tales for Tails Fall 2019 Schedule
The York County SPCA Tales for Tails program is for kids in Kindergarten-6th grade. This is a wonderful program for our dogs and readers. It provides kids with a judgement free zone to practice reading while giving a calm and quiet few hours to our dogs. Please sign up each participating child using one sign up box per child. Children are encouraged to bring their own book(s) and blanket or towel to sit on, but we will provide these items for you in the lobby.
We hope to see you in our kennels, curled up with a good book and a great dog.
Clear the Shelters
Join the York County SPCA as we participate in Clear the Shelters-a nationwide adoption drive aimed at, you guessed it, clearing our shelter! This is our first year participating, and we will be doing so by honoring half priced adoptions from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, August 17th. Please get your application in ahead of time so we can work to approved it. Same Day Adoptions are only available with a pre-approved application. New Applications will not be reviewed this day. We have over 100 available animals waiting to home with you.

Half Price, Full Life! Adopt-a-thon
Welcome to the first reduced adoption fee event held by the York County SPCA! We are so excited for our animals to be in their new homes by the end of the two-day event that we can hardly contain our excitement! While reduced price/free adoption events have had negative connotations in the past, we feel there is nothing negative associated with a secure adoption process resulting in an animal being adopted at the end of the day. Our adoption process will remain the same as always, nothing different here, but prices have been cut in half for all available animals at the SPCA main shelter. Interested in adopting this day? Get your application in now. May 3rd and 4th we want to focus on meet and greets and adoptions-this cannot be done without an approved application. Please join us May 3rd and 4th to help us clear the shelter!
