The Delaware County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or SPCA, has dogs, cats, kittens and puppies available for adoption, however, the adoption fee varies considerably between the different kinds of pets.The SPCA, located in Media, Pa., has an adoption process that all potential applicants must go through in order to adopt one of the animals at the shelter.
The adoption process involves filling out a form, submitting a driver's license ID and confirming that the applicant rents in a place that allows animals or owns a home. It also includes paying the adoption fee, which varies depending on the animal. For more information about the adoption process, a potential applicant should visit the Delaware County SPCA or give the organization a call.
Every pet that is adopted through the Delaware County SPCA will have had a wellness check, initial vaccinations, a microchip, a spay surgery or a neuter surgery, a heartworm test for dogs if they are old enough, FeLV/FIV testing for cats and a complimentary wellness visit for new pet owners at one of the veterinary practices that participate in the SPCA program. The adoption fee helps to cover these services as well as provide funding for other animals in the care of the SPCA.
