Hillside SPCA, Inc is a Pennsylvania non-profit corporation that provides animal welfare services to all of Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. The physical and emotional well-being of the animals is the top priority of the Hillside staff.
The Hillside SPCA, Inc. operates an animal shelter facility located at SPCA Road, North Manheim Township, Pennsylvania at absolute maximum capacity and has done so for several years.
In addition to operating the animal shelter facility, we also conduct investigations of animal cruelty and prosecute those individuals found to be violating the Pennsylvania Cruelty Statute.The staff includes trained and certified humane officers appointed by the Court of Common Pleas of Schuylkill County as well as humane investigators who perform animal cruelty investigations and issue citations as necessary.
The Hillside SPCA, Inc. conducts educational programs in local schools focusing on the humane treatment of animals and the need to control the animal population through spay/neuter programs. The shelter also provides financial assistance to individuals who cannot afford to have their pets spayed/neutered.
Animals will only be adopted to those individuals who meet specific adoption requirements and who sign our adoption contract. The Hillside SPCA is very diligent in checking on adopted animals to insure that they are spayed/neutered and that they are receiving proper treatment. If needed, we provide financial assistance for spay/neuter expenses.
We are a truly unique animal shelter serving all of Schuylkill County (Pennsylvania) which covers 783 square miles.
We are a very busy shelter with many animals in residence; our population can, and does, vary with the seasons, often increasing during spring and summer due to an explosion in unwanted animals caused by the failure of owners to spay and neuter and owners surrendering their pets
