A Passion for York’s Pets
Connecting York’s four-legged residents with loving homes, the York County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) also offers protection and opportunity.
As a nonprofit, the York County SPCA has saved more than 350,000 animal lives since its opening in 1926. In the community, York County SPCA staff and volunteers work daily to help reunite lost animals with their owners, investigate cases of animal cruelty, and provide low-cost spaying or neutering services to control the city’s animal population growth.
To improve adoption rates and expand community engagement and educational events, the York County SPCA is renovating two communal spaces with the support of the Powder Mill Foundation.
One of the unique aspects of working with the Powder Mill Foundation is that the team is not just a passive funder, but an active partner and supporter of our animal resource center. The Powder Mill Foundation lifts the local nonprofit community by providing resources and meaningful connections to ensure the partners it funds have the best chance at growing their mission-driven outcomes for the entire community.

With the renovation of the center’s lobby and conference room, York County SPCA leadership will be able to serve the community in more meaningful ways, energize staff and volunteers, and enhance the ability to connect people and pets.
Louis J. Appell, Jr. had a strong belief in the importance of nonprofits building their capacity so they can strengthen and increase their services. With a solid infrastructure, nonprofits can succeed more fully. We believe wholeheartedly Mr. Appell would support our renovation project and would deeply understand the value it will bring to our programming and services.
