Delco SPCA says No More Strays
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 05/31/11 10:47 am | updated: 05/31/11 10:47 am
The Delaware County SPCA is getting out of the lost and found business as of July 1. This deadline was set last July when it announced that it would focus on programs that prevent animal cruelty and overpopulation and promote responsible pet ownership. Townships and boroughs that deposited as many as 2000 strays at the Media shelter last year will have to find other accommodations... and so far many of them do not have alternative plans in place yet. These changes are only the prologue to the SPCA's intended conversion to a no-kill shelter by July 2012. Last year, 25 percent of its population was euthanized.

Most of the 49 municipalities still have no Plan B. They include Upper Darby and Chester City, which last year accounted for 41 percent of the strays dropped off at the SPCA.

The SPCA's no-strays rule was born of scandal. In recent years, the small, donation-supported nonprofit has been intensely criticized for mismanaging finances, delivering inadequate veterinary care, and keeping animals in unhealthy conditions.

To be accepted into the shelter, a pet must be brought in by its owner, said Justine Calgiano, a shelter spokeswoman. There may be exceptions, however. Pennsylvania law requires municipalities to hold stray dogs (not cats) for a minimum of 48 hours, after which they can be put up for adoption or euthanized.
