12/12/2017 - VINELAND - The Cumberland County Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ shelter is not closing at the end of the year, as announced back in October.The SPCA is working with government officials in Cumberland and Salem counties on a financial reprieve that would keep the shelter open. “It’s been nerve-wracking but hopefully we’re going to get this new budget rolling and it will be enough that we can get through 2018 and possibility find new ways to become more self-sustaining,” said Bev Greco, the agency’s executive director. read more...

Talks continue to find animal shelter solution

11/6/2017 - VINELAND - First, an update on what is happening with the future of our sheltering operations at the Cumberland County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The Cumberland County freeholders hosted a meeting inviting all the mayors in order to present the towns with the information the board has gathered concerning who is responsible for sheltering and the costs associated with it. It sounds as though the powers that be in the county realize that it would be a very expensive undertaking to have to operate a county-owned facility, and it isn’t practical or affordable for municipalities to undertake such operations individually.The freeholder board has offered a general idea read more...

Here's why the SPCA shelter can't survive...

10/17/2017 - VINELAND - Needless to say, it has been a tumultuous few days since the announcement of the cessation of our sheltering services at the Cumberland County SPCA the end of the year. Years of struggle have come before this decision was reached. As is normal for any nonprofit organization, we’ve always fought to make ends meet, but we’ve always managed to stay true to our mission. As is the case with so many things, the rules and regulations that govern our industry have become so overwhelming that the concentration on administrative requirements saps our resources. Taking funds away from animal care to pay for pushing paperwork undermines our very mission. read more...

It’s been an absolutely amazing year in our ability to move our homeless animals out to our rescue partners and sister shelters. Last year we saved more than a thousand lives in our transfer program and this year we are well on our way to far exceeding that number! It’s hard for us to believe that there are shelters that can adopt out more animals than what they take in from their own areas, but sure enough, we have been sending dogs, cats and kittens to high volume adoption facilities from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts.  read more...
