ADOPT A PET
The Chester County SPCA (CCSPCA) invites you to visit our shelter and adopt a friend. As the largest source of companion animals in Chester County, PA, the CCSPCA offers pets in all sizes, shapes, colors, and ages; mixed breeds and purebred dogs and cats, as well as small animals, exotics, and sometimes pigs, goats, fowl, and domestic others.
In order to insure that the Chester County SPCA can find loving, permanent homes for our animals, we have adopted a broad set of guidelines to help us in our placement decisions. These guidelines have been developed over time to provide a uniform, fair adoption procedure. We appreciate your understanding as you go through the adoption process.
Adoptions applicants must be 18 years or older and provide a proper photo ID. The CCSPCA takes the following things into consideration when adopting:
- The reason for wishing to adopt
- Employment status
- Housing status
- Allergy considerations
- The involvement of family members
- Previous pet history
- Animal care and housing
- Existing pets
- Other factors
Adopting an animal from the Chester County SPCA entails certain responsibilities, including but not limited to, mandatory spaying or neutering, proper vet care and proper housing and feeding.
Because of the many factors involved in adopting an animal from the CCSPCA, we cannot guarantee that an adoption will be completed the same day, nor can we guarantee the right of any potential client to adopt.
