The Delaware County Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has been opening hearts & homes for 102 years. In 2012, they placed 3,139 homeless animals into forever homes. This year, they celebrate their 5th year as a lifesaving organization.
The Delco SPCA cares for and adopts our pets that are relinquished by their owners as well as animals that have suffered cruelty and neglect. They also rescue adoptable animals from high-risk shelters in need. The staff and volunteers work constantly to promote responsible pet ownership and combat animal overpopulation through prevention programs such as low-cost public veterinary care and greatly subsidized spaying and neutering, pet food banks, animal cruelty investigations and humane education.
Please change a life by adopting a pet. You may be surprised to find that the life you change will be your own!Learn More

For this coming program year July, 2016 until June, 2017, my Rotary Club will be a well-attended, well-regarded civic organization in our community providing an enjoyable, meaningful and impactful experience to its members, potential members, neighbors and the broader community with whom we interact so that we will be known for thoughtful, well-planned and implemented projects and good works … while expanding existing relationships and establishing new ones with organizations connected to our region that work to improve the lives and conditions for others.
As the President of the Rotary Club of Central Delaware County (2015-2016), we are proud of our 26 year history and accomplishments with many diversified projects while celebrating Rotary’s mission by way of fundraising and social events throughout the region. As a club and executive board, we have reaffirmed that Central Delco Rotary is committed to being a strong and vibrant club maintaining our charter as an independent club under District 7450. We look forward to another 26 years as a club and hope to bring in new members with ideas and enthusiasm for outreach to our community, and throughout the world. Please join us for a breakfast soon and share in the excitement!
