Opportunity of the Week – SPCA (and some other animal shelters)

One thing I’ve learned about Hill Top students…you all tend to have a special place in your heart for animals. So, I thought I’d give you a list of some animal shelters that are looking for volunteers. For most of these places, you need to be at least 16 and have parental approval to volunteer – although a few do have opportunities for younger volunteers.

And remember, you can’t adopt them all.

All 4 Paws (Chester Springs)

Delaware County SPCA (Media)

Francisvale Home for Smaller Animals (Radnor)

Last Chance Ranch (Quakertown) – this is a shelter for horses

Main Line Animal Rescue (Chester Springs)

PALS (Wayne and Broomall) – this seems to be a cat rescue that works with some local pet stores

While there are many, many animal rescues and shelters in the area, I’ve only listed ones that are no kill shelters.
