A Note About National Groups
You may have seen the television commercials by national sounding charities such as Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the American SPCA (ASPCA) and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (Best Friends). Many assume we are affiliated with HSUS and ASPCA, and even Best Friends and that donations to these organizations trickle down to PHS/SPCA, but they don’t.
PHS/SPCA receives no funding from the national sounding groups, nor are we governed by or affiliated with HSUS, ASPCA, Best Friends, or any other animal welfare group. The only way to help local homeless, unwanted, abandoned and abused pets (as well as local sick, injured and orphaned wildlife) in this community is by making a donation directly to PHS/SPCA.
