I've been with the Brandywine Valley SPCA for over two years, and what a journey it has been. I started working in the kennels in West Chester, then eventually moved into the role of Intake Coordinator. In late 2020, we started a project in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana. I moved down there with two other BVSPCA team members, and we immediately made a huge impact with the live release rate. It was an incredibly rewarding experience, and we continue to save lives down there every day, even recently opening a low cost clinic for local residents. I eventually moved back to Delaware, where I oversaw our Animal Rescue Center and Eastern Shore Pet Resort. Fast forward a little bit, and now I'm back in West Chester/Malvern, with responsibilities including ordering & inventory, managing our vehicle fleet, IT, and facilities. I have never been so proud to be part of such an amazing organization. We are saving lives each and every day. Having many roles, and spending time in all of our locations, I have a very unique perspective, I am familiar with many different pieces of our operations, and I also have the pleasure of knowing just about everybody that works for BVSPCA. Every single person that works for this organization, or volunteers their time... I can't put into words how incredible they are. This is not easy work, and it never ends. It takes a special kind of person to endure, and I'm constantly surrounded by all of these special people. There's nothing quite like it. None of this work is possible without support. We are fortunate to have many wonderful sponsors, donors, volunteers, and a generous local community. Because of this, we are able to have an incredible impact, but we always need help. Every little bit counts, as cliche as that sounds. Please consider donating, fostering, volunteering, adopting, or even just spreading the word. With your help, we can continue to help not only the pets that come through our doors, but also the people who rely on our services. Together, we can do so much to help our community and other communities in need. Thank you!

We've teamed up to support the Brandywine Valley SPCA and to help make a difference in the lives of the 18,000+ homeless animals they care for each year. Join our efforts and help us make their 35th annual event the best year yet!
