The Lycoming County SPCA has many wonderful dogs and cats available for adoption. At times, we also have many other domestic animals available. Our adoption process is in place for the best interest of our animals. We may require additional steps in our process such as a home visit, permission from parents, or other additional requests. We appreciate your patience as we complete your adoption.
Before adding a new member to your family, please consider the following:
Many pets live 10 to 15 years. How old will you be? How old will your children be?

If the pet is for a child are you willing to assume the care of the pet? Children must have parental guidance to care for a pet regardless of their age.
Each breed of animal has genetic characteristics that need to be considered. Have you researched the breed that you are interested in?

If you feel you are ready to make a commitment to care for a new pet you must complete the following:
