Pennsylvania SPCA rescues 100 animals from Quarryville property

Animals rescued included dogs, cats, horses, sheep, chickens, chicks and more

QUARRYVILLE, Pa. – The Pennsylvania SPCA executed a search warrant and ultimately removed a total of 100 animals from a Quarryville property due to the allegedly unsanitary and unsafe conditions in which they were housed.

The agency’s humane law enforcement officers were alerted to the property by a Good Samaritan, the PSPCA said in a news release.

Officers seized 11 dogs, 27 cats, five horses, four sheep, one goat, two turkeys, 32 chickens, four guinea fowl, six chickens and eight ducklings from the property off Pumping Station Road in Quarryville.

Officials saw extremely unsanitary conditions inside the property on Thursday.

They returned Friday with a search warrant. Animals were kept both indoors and outdoors and lived in the dirt, the PSPCA said. Many had medical concerns that had not been addressed.

A majority of the animals were taken to the PSPCA headquarters in Philadelphia for further evaluation and care.

After a medical examination, the animals are available for adoption or rescue placement.

“Today, 100 animals were moved out of harm’s way by the Pennsylvania SPCA Human Law Enforcement Team,” said Julie Kim, CEO of Pa’s SPCA Human Law Enforcement Team.

“Every single day our officers are in the trenches rescuing animals from cruel conditions and this large scale rescue is a testament to that. Each of these animals will receive the care it needs and it will be our privilege to lay them on the path to new lives free from neglect.”

Investigations into animal cruelty and neglect are ongoing. The indictment is pending pending the full investigation.

Anyone with information regarding this or other animal cruelty cases is urged to call the Pennsylvania SPCA Animal Cruelty Hotline at (866) 601-SPCA. Tips can be left anonymously.
