It was just after midnight on July 9 when a car crashed through the front window of the Brandywine Valley SPCA’s facility in New Castle, Delaware, sparking a fire in the building. The tragic accident resulted in the death of the car’s driver and three cats housed in the adoption center. While emergency crews responded quickly, the accident displaced nearly 100 pets, and now, Brandywine Valley SPCA is asking for the community’s help.

What you can do

The biggest needs are for more adoptions at Brandywine Valley SPCA’s other three locations, as well as donations.



Brandywine Valley SPCA is a Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network partner.
