PLAINS TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — The heartbeat of our area shelters are volunteers.

Those who give up their time to help care for animals. They clean, feed, and love the animals waiting for their “Forever Home”.

There are many ways you can help your shelters.

“We are always in need of volunteers our shelter runs at nearly capacity all the time. The more community help we have to socialize, walk, love and care for these animals,“  said Todd Hevner, Executive Director, SPCA of Luzerne County.
