Past Service Projects

PA SPCAThe 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!

Service above self to help others!

We are proud of our accomplishments!

We plan to be around for another 26 years.

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.
