SPCA of Westchester
Founded in 1883, The SPCA's mission is to ensure the humane treatment of animals throughout Westchester County and to bring people and animals together for their mutual benefit. The SPCA serves as the sole animal cruelty prevention agency for Westchester and neighboring counties that do not have an SPCA. Each year our peace officers investigate over 1,000 cases of suspected animal abuse and take definitive steps to correct the problem if evidence of cruelty is found. Through our Simpson Clinic, the SPCA offers to the public low-cost spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations in an effort to help people keep their pets healthy. Since establishing our clinic in 1983, we have spayed/neutered 39,000 dogs and cats, successfully reducing the number of strays brought to our shelter by 50% over the last 10 years. Each year our animal shelter places more than 1,000 homeless companion animals into loving new homes and reunites another 300 lost pets with their families. The SPCA is recognized as a “no-kill” as we never euthanize an animal unless it is terminally ill and suffering or extremely aggressive.
