ABOUT THE CENTER FOR ANIMAL HEALTH AND WELFARE:
Formed in 1913, The Center for Animal Health and Welfare (formerly the Northampton County SPCA) is a private organization. They are not affiliated with any other SPCA or ASPCA. We are not a government agency, but are a non-profit organization with a 501c3 status. In 2003 they committed ourselves to saving lives and became a no-kill shelter. They are dedicated to providing a safe and healthy environment for animals. They have improved their foster program, increased adoptions and offer supportive programs to our community. Fund raising, donations and bequests make up 90% of our income and we apply for many grants. Adoption fees, relinquishment fees, memberships and agreements with some of the local municipalities, to take in their strays, generate the rest of our revenue.
Financials: The center is responsible for a $1,000,000 operating budget annually. Their major costs are: Veterinary care, Medical supplies, Kennel supplies, Spay/Neuter expenses, Insurance, Utilities, Payroll and Adoption.
The Center makes every effort to find loving homes for these scared and lonely pets. They do not set a fixed time limit on animals, but keep them for as long as they remain adoptable. Click Here for the Website.
