  • 1. very clean, organized, and helpful facility!

    by: SnushKid

    the SPCA of luzerne county is a great place to go and adopt a dog or cat if you cannot find one from another shelter or you live close to them. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable and their animals are always given the best of care. They really are their for the animals, and you can see that in how well taken care of they are. Great facility!

    Pros

    friendly, helpful staff, huge facility, great place

    Cons

    need some general up dates to match hard work of employees!

  • 2. Very helpful organization

    by: Taliketeri

    This shelter is such an asset to our area. So many times shelters run out of a necessity before they're able to buy more of what they need and are foced to barter with other shelters. It is such a please doing bartering business with the SPCA of Luzerne County. If we have and they don't we swap and vice versa. \r\n They keep us up to date with lost and found animals that show up to their facility from our area and we do the same. They offer a very good working relationship with other animal care facilities.

    Pros

    Always willing to help out other shelters

    Cons

    A little too expensive for adoptions

  • 3. More help!

    I think the SPCA of Luzerne is great. I just wish I could take all of the animals home. I also wish I could do more to help out financially. I think places like this one should be given bigger grants from the state.

    by: OptTooAdopt

    I have gotten dogs from this SPCA in the past, most recently my dog Toby, He was well taken care of and they were very quick on getting him neutered so he could finally come to his Furever home. They microchip and neuter ever cat and dog that leave there. A+++

    by: queennella

    This SPCA is GREAT! They do everything within their power to ensure that each and every pet brought into there is well cared for, treated for any problems, and goes to a wonderful home! I have adopted 2 dogs from there and would not start a new pet search any place else! I can't imagine a better place for a special little guy/gal to go to find it's final home for life!

    Pros

    clean, well cared for pets, friendly staff, and more

    Cons

    none
