BVSPCA expanding their services with new facility and ICU

NEW CASTLE- Brandywine Valley SPCA is expanding their services with a new facility.

We are told the organization purchased property in New Castle to replace their current campus in that county.

This new building will allow them to expand their services, since they outgrew their current New Castle location.

The new space will double the spay and neuter capacity, provide new play yards for dogs and cats, and specialty surgery capabilities.

People who are apart of this project said it will also bring the first in house shelter intensive care unit to shelter animals- and for families who can’t afford specialty care.

“So when animals need quarantine rooms for instance for contagious diseases or they need oxygen tanks for special support we will be able to provide that right in our facility,” Linda Torelli, BVSPCA Director of Marketing, said.

“I think this is going to make it a lot more affordable and there will be access, there’s definetly a need for this,” Kemal Erkan, CEO of United Medical and on BVSPCA’s Advisory Board, said.

We are told this is a 4 million dollar project overall, with the help of many already half of that money is raised.

They will be opening this new facility at the end of this year.
