Programs: Shelter services: the spca of westchester contracts with 14 municipalities to accept stray cats and dogs for return to their owners or to arrange for them to be adopted. A no-kill facility, the spca is committed to caring for all adoptable animals until a new home can be found.

Investigations encompass cruelty complaints involving dogs, cats, horses, exotics and farm animals.
