Montgomery County SPCA
The Montgomery County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a nonprofit organization dedicated to animal protection, humane education, and caring for unwanted, lost and abused domestic animals. Established in 1909, the Montgomery County SPCA (in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania), has three locations. The Conshohocken facility houses the administrative offices and is the largest of the organization's three animal shelters. The Perkiomenville facility is set on a picturesque farm with a barn that houses retired livestock and a shelter for small animals. In 1997 we constructed a new facility in Abington Township to further our service for eastern Montgomery County.
Provide a Loving Home Today! Each year thousands of pets enter into our three shelters and are in need of new homes. From puppies and kittens to dogs and cats, to rabbits and guinea pigs, birds and other small mammals, old or young, they all are in search of a home for the rest of their lives. Whether you are looking for a young cat for your family or can provide a loving home for an elderly dog, we appreciate that you are looking to adopt!
Effective August 2, 2021, if you are currently considering Adoption our shelter is open for walk through without appointment during adoption hours. Please take the time to read our Temporary Adoption Policies.
Lost & Found Animals
The MCSPCA shelters lost animals which are brought in by the county police, animal control officers or the public. These animals will remain in our care while every effort is made to contact the owner. Unclaimed lost animals are made available for adoption. We work with reputable Animal Rescue groups to place any pet.
You may reach any of our three locations to file a report for your lost/found pet.
Animal Cruelty Investigations
The Montgomery County SPCA enforces the animal cruelty laws of PA and follows up on every report filed. Our Humane Society Police Officers investigate, order corrections, or file charges in court as necessary. We work closely with police and other law enforcement agencies. We have 24-hour emergency ambulance service for stray injured pets and also provide 24-hour emergency veterinary services for stray animals. If you see an animal being abused or mistreated, please file a report with us immediately. Please call any of our three locations to file a report, Conshohocken 610-825-0111, Perkiomenville 610-754-7822, and Abington 215-886-8802.
Teddy, our Canine Good Citizen and Certified Therapy Dog, travels to the far corners of Montgomery County and beyond to bring Humane Education Programs to young and old alike. He, along with our Humane Educator, visit schools and nursing homes and attend fairs and special events. They also host parties and animal reading programs at our three shelters. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we currently still have some restricions on visits to and tours of the shelter. We are, however, now scheduling in-classroom school programs for the 2021-2022 school year as well as visits in nursing homes and at public events.

Other Events and Volunteer Opportunities Coming Soon
Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are not accepting new volunteers, nor are we able to host special MCSPCA Events as we had in previous years. We expect that with the continuing spread of the disease this will remain as such through the remainder of 2022, but with high hopes that our events schedule and volunteer opportunities will return late this year of next. Thank you so much for your continued interest!
