A 1165 Island Park Road, Easton, PA 18042 shelter helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.
1 - 20 of 78 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
At CAHW, we have a program called "Meet Your Match" that is a short questionnaire to help staff match adopters with their perfect match!
Applications typically take 72 hours to process, but may take longer if we are unable to complete certain aspects of the application.
Once an application is approved, we ask that the animal is picked up within 72 hours of the approval. Appointments must be made for pickup.
At this time, the approved adopter will receive all medical information regarding the animal while in the care of CAHW.
We love photo updates for any and every animal that is adopted. CAHW does a 30 day post-adoption follow-up.
Formed in 1913, The Center for Animal Health and Welfare (formerly the Northampton County SPCA) is a private organization. We are not affiliated with any other SPCA or ASPCA. We are not a government agency, but are a non-profit organization with a 501c3 status.
In 2003 we committed ourselves to saving lives and became a no-kill shelter. We are dedicated to providing a safe and healthy environment for animals. We have improved our foster program, increased adoptions and offer a low-cost spay/neuter program.
Fund raising, donations and bequests make up 90% of our income and we apply for many grants. Adoption fees, relinquishment fees, memberships and agreements with some of the local municipalities, to take in their strays, generate the rest of our revenue. Although we greatly appreciate the help from the municipalities that do support us, not all do. Northampton County contributes about $5,000.
We are responsible for a $900,000 operating budget annually.
Our major costs are:
We make every effort to find loving homes for these scared and lonely pets. We do not set a fixed time limit on animals, but keep them for as long as they remain adoptable.
