SERVING THE COMMUNITY SINCE 1929, CHESTER COUNTY SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS IS AN AWARD-WINNING SHELTER FOR HOMELESS AND ABUSED ANIMALS.
On Sunday, August 3, West Whiteland police arrested a man caught in the process of abusing a 8-week-old kitten. The kitten had been choked with a rope, was bleeding and had been given heroin. The kitten was taken to a veterinary clinic and was revived by a veterinarian who administered Narcan, antidote for heroin overdose. The kitten, now named Hope, is still recovering at the veterinary clinic. The Chester County SPCA is gratefully accepting donations for the medical bills for the kitten who will be moved to foster care indefinitely after being released from veterinary care. We are very appreciative of the West Whiteland police's swift response to this heinous crime and for the immediate care of the kitten by the veterinary hospital. Please indicate that your donation is for Hope's medical care.
The Chester County SPCA received this letter from the 5th grade students at Chadds Ford Elementary with a $20 bill enclosed. We are so touched by the thoughtfulness of the children and the excellent example the teacher is giving these students! Many thanks!

For the past five years, Pedaling4Paws has raised money for the Chester County SPCA. Last year, it was $10,000! This year, they are raffling a framed limited edition print by Juan Vela. Tickets are $10 each and available at the front desk of the SPCA. The drawing will be held on June 20th at the Visual Expansion Gallery in West Chester.
Thank You to Pet Valu! Pet Valu in the Gateway Shopping Center held a kitty litter donation drive during the month of June for the CCSPCA. They donated 150 40-pound bags and 76 8-pound bags. Wow, thank you so much!
The Chester County SPCA wants to express its sincerest gratitude to the Whitford Charitable Fund, a Fund of the Chester County Community Foundation. They recently awarded us a $12,000 grant for us to continue our lifesaving work with animals.
