Pennsylvania Animal Shelter Empty For First Time in 47 Years

An animal shelter in Pennsylvania was vacated as residents nearby took all the animals as pets.

The Guardian reported that the shelter remains empty for the first time in 47 years, thanks to Christmas.

A total of 598 were adopted, while owners had also taken 125 strays away. 

Shelter Was Full Days Ago

According to CNN, the shelter was completely full, and there was no space for any other animal.

The staffers were worried, but thanks to the Christmas holidays, the entire shelter is empty, and there are no dogs and cats.

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – SPCA ‘for short’- wrote on Facebook, “Today is a great day for the Adams County SPCA! Two weeks ago our kennels were almost filled, now we don’t have any dogs”.

SPCA is a non-profit animal welfare organization that aims to protect all animals from cruelty, neglect and ill-treatment.
