Brandywine Valley SPCA partnering with shelter in Louisiana

GEORGETOWN, Del. – The Brandywine Valley SPCA is teaming up with a shelter in Louisiana to bring much needed help to animals in the state. The shelter is now working with the Tangipahoa Parish Animal Services for a year-long program called Embed.

The program will help animals get adopted by relocating them to areas where they’ll be more adoptable, they’ll be holding more spay and neuter clinics, and even introducing more trap, neuter, release programs which will save cats lives. And the work doesn’t stop there.

“In the long run, there’s going to be spay neuter in place, to prevent unwanted litters, there will be what we call intake intervention programs, which will help families keep their pets when they’re maybe just facing some challenges,” Linda Torelli, with the Brandywine Valley SPCA, said.

Right now, we’re told the partnership is in the early stages, but there is already staff from the Brandywine Valley SPCA down in Louisiana getting the ball rolling. The two shelters have partnered in the past, but we’re told this partnership will lead to more long term success and of course saving more lives.
