Students in DelVal programs will now have the chance to learn from leaders who bring real-world experience and examples into the classroom.

Bucks County SPCA (Society For the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is a community resource organization for pets and people. The community resource has been around for more than a century and depends on private donations to operate.

Bucks County SPCA offers a skilled veterinary group and helps animals in need by rescuing and rehoming, undergoing cruelty investigations, prosecution and community outreach.

“This partnership with DelVal will help ensure that the dedicated and compassionate staff and volunteers of the Bucks County SPCA have access to excellent, more affordable educational opportunities,” said Linda Reider, Executive Director at Bucks County SPCA in a recent release. “The flexibility of evening and online classes make continuing education accessible to our working professionals. We are excited to provide this additional benefit to help people achieve their personal and professional goals.”

Participating in the Employer Educational Partnership program with the Bucks County SPCA will benefit students, giving them 10% off tuition for select master’s, bachelor’s, and associate degree program and offer an option to defer tuition with enrolling in a deferred payment plan and more.

Once cleared for adoption animals do not have a hard time finding a home, typically being less than a week. They have great success placing seniors, special needs and farm animals. Their veterinary team performs thousands of medical exams and surgeries, achieving and sustaining an average live release rate of 93%, above the 90% no kill shelter benchmark. All animals at SPCA journey begins with a rigorous intake exam and continues with individualized care. All animals are evaluated for behavior and provided with training during their shelter stay. The clinics subsidized neuter/ spay for cats and kittens, friendly or untamed.”
