Spay/Neuter Assistance

The Lycoming County SPCA provides financial assistance to low to moderate income residents who live in Lycoming County. Individuals needing assistance need to complete an application. You will need to show identification and your tax return as proof of income. You may show proof of receipt of Medicaid, Food Stamps, PACE, WIC, or other welfare program.

Please come to the SPCA to complete the application, show proof of income, pay any co-payments, and receive information about scheduling your pet’s surgery with one of our participating veterinarians.  Your co-payment is based on your total household’s gross income per year based on your tax return.

If you wish to contribute, the Jean Marie White Spay/Neuter Fund is an established fund designated for the spaying and neutering of companion animals.  If you donate to this fund, the funds are added to the principal of a certificate of deposit account.  The interest generated from this fund is used for spaying and neutering.  Just make a notation in the memo section that the funds are restricted to the Jean Marie White Spay/Neuter Fund.  Thank you for helping us save lives.

Lost and Found Reporting

Please call the shelter at 570-322-4646 to report a lost or found animal. It is recommended that you visit the shelter to look for your pet because your breed description of your pet may not match the description we presume the animal to be..

Education Services & Tours

We believe that humane treatment of animals and safety around animals begins at a young age. If your school or group would like a visit from one of our educators please contact us at 570-322-4646.

We also do onsite educations programs! We start with a program, proceed with a tour of the SPCA, then we learn Dog Bite prevention, and end with practicing what we learned!

Other Services

Quarantine Services

If your pet requires quarantine due to biting we can help you. There is a $14 per day charge for this service. There are additional charges we can discuss with you if your pet requires euthanasia after the quarantine period.

Animals at Large

We have no legal authority regarding animals running at large, animal bites, or barking. However, we can provide humane traps for you to catch stray cats on your property. A $50 check is required as a deposit for the trap and is returned to you upon return of the trap. Dog bites are reportable to the dog warden at 570-350-8742. Please consider a donation when you drop off or surrender an animal.  If you live outside of Lycoming County, we can direct you to other rescue groups to help you with animal-related concerns.

Euthanasia, Cremation, and Burial Services

Euthanasia is always a difficult decision.  We have technicians certified by the American Humane Association to help your pet.  Because this process is also emotionally difficult for our technicians, we are unable to help your pet and you during the euthanasia process.  Therefore, you will not be able to be with your pet while it is euthanized.  If this is important to you, please call your veterinarian.  After euthanasia, we can return your pet to you for burial, cremate the remains, return the ashes to you, or provide burial services in our cemetery.  Prices vary by the weight of the animal.
