SPCA of Westchester has a pet rescue and transportation program.

Rescue / Transportation Program

Beginning in 2007, the SPCA began a program to rescue animals from high-kill shelters where they were slated to be euthanized due to a lack of space and funding. With a solid adoption rate at our shelter, we were confident that we could find loving homes for these animals which we have done with great success.

Through this special program, the SPCA has saved the lives of thousands of dogs, cat, puppies and kittens in the United States and world-wide including North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, the Cayman Islands, Puerto Rico, Thailand and Turkey.

In 2018, the SPCA rescued and safely transported more than 700 at-risk animals so that they could receive a second chance and find loving, new homes.


One of our largest rescue/transport programs, Briarcliff Bound Buddies, helps various shelters located in Mississippi through a life-saving partnership we have with a local rescue group there who works in conjunction with the Mississippi University Veterinary School.
 

*To learn more about how you can help or donate towards this vital program, please contact Lisa Bonanno at (914) 941-2896 ext. 54 or Lisa@spca914.org. We are always in need of support from animal lovers who can help underwrite these life-saving transports so that we can continue to save more lives every year. You may also choose to dedicate a rescue transport in memory or honor of a beloved person or pet. 

Happy Tails!
