CASPCA Safely Transfers 20 Animals from Buckingam Animal Control

Early Thursday morning, a team of two staff members traveled to Buckingham County Animal Control to safely transport four dogs, nine puppies, two cats, and a nursing cat with four neonatal kittens back to the shelter. With limited space and resources, these animals needed further medical treatment, and were faced with overcrowding. The CASPCA immediately rose to the cause, and safely transferred the animals back to the shelter.

We are so fortunate to be able to provide assistance in rescuing abandoned and displaced animals. Without the support of our amazing community this would not be possible. Please continue to follow us on social media and our website for updates on these animals.
