The Rick and Sally Meyers Animal Shelter (Meyers Animal Shelter) is owned and managed by the Adams County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is an IRC 501 c-3 non-profit organization that provides shelter and care for lost, abandoned and abused animals, investigates cases of cruelty to animals, recommends the prosecution of persons engaging in animal neglect or cruelty, helps control animal overpopulation and educates the community about spay/neuter programs, animal wellness and safety.
Who We Are
Serving Adams County since April 30,1976, the The Rick and Sally Meyers Animal Shelter/Adams County SPCA provides vital services to animals and people alike through sheltering and adopting animals, investigating animal cruelty and neglect, and rescuing animals in emergency situations.
The Rick and Sally Meyers Animal Shelter/Adams County SPCA is a private nonprofit organization that receives only approximately 3% of its annual operating budget of $500,000 from Adams County. We also receive donations from several townships/municipalities for our much needed services, but we continue to struggle to support the very important task of caring for the many animals that come through our doors. We do fundraising, memberships, apply for grants and receive some bequests. For the past couple of years, too many animals have become displaced orphans; a tragedy of these harsh economic times. We take in approximately 3000 animals per year and each year that number increases.
