Montgomery County SPCA
The Montgomery County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a nonprofit organization dedicated to caring for unwanted, lost and abused domestic animals. Established in 1909 and chartered in 1916, The Montgomery County SPCA (in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania), has three locations. The Administrative Offices are located in the Conshohocken Facility as well as a shelter for small domestic animals. The Perkiomenville facility for small domestic animals and retired, injured, or abused livestock on a 60-acre horse farm. Our newest facility for small domestic animals is in Abington.
What We Offer
Lost & Found Animals
Each year thousands of pets escape from their owners and are found wandering their neighborhood. Many of these pets are quickly returned home, but many others may get confused and stray too far from home or simply be excited in exploring the area. These pets are often picked up by good Samaritans, local police, or animal control and brought to our shelter where we will spend a week looking for their owner. The majority of these pets are reunited with their families. If no owner is found, the pets are placed up for adoption or placed with a reputable rescue group.
We have many animals at each shelter that need new homes. Every effort is made by the staff to provide assistance and background information on the animals in order to help prospective families make the right choice. All animals available for adoption are vaccinated, dewormed and altered. A minimal fee is charged for all adoptions. Adoption also includes some post-adoption health care and behavioral advice.

Our humane educator presents programs on many topics concerning animals to schools, clubs and service organizations. These programs are an important part of our mission as they teach current and future pet owners what to do to insure their pet is a happy and healthy member of their family. 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.
