“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:
the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.”
-Burton Hills

The pets at the Lycoming County SPCA would love to be all wrapped up in their new forever family this Christmas. But even if they spend Christmas at the shelter, you can help make their spirits bright!

Holiday Toy Drive

Volunteers and staff have curated a special list just for the shelter pets this Christmas. There is a little something for everyone! You can even have the items shipped directly to the shelter when you order off of the Amazon list.

Letters to Shelter Pets

Lift your favorite shelter pet’s spirits by crafting a hand-written note. The notes will decorate their kennels to remind them how loved they are. Look for the table in our lobby.

Have you seen?


Shelter pets hurried to send their Christmas letters to Santa Paws. They even placed them in our special “Santa Mail” mailbox themselves. If you have not seen the Facebook post, you should check it out. It is really cute! SPCA volunteers even read some of the letters out loud to help make the pets’ Christmas wishes come true. Adopt a pet today and make all their dreams come true!
