Shelter Closings

All across Pennsylvania shelters are closing their doors.  What does that mean for us?  It means more animals, more stress, more phone calls, more people needing help.  Lycoming County is in North central PA.  Tioga, Potter, Union, Northumberland, Montour and Sullivan Counties do not have shelters.  Bradford county SPCA called today asking if we had room for their overflow.  Unfortunately we did not.  It is just wild crazy that the State of Pennsylvania, and many of the townships and boroughs rely on SPCA's for animal control.  What will the municipalities do if the all SPCA's decide that they will be limited admission?  Where will all the animals go?  The Lycoming County commissioners withdrew $25,000 in funding for our SPCA.  I think that they should decide what to do with all the excess animals.
