The Brandywine Valley Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will hold two town hall meetings, open to the public, to discuss the organization’s intended purchase and plans for a currently unused animal shelter in Georgetown to serve as a Rescue & Rehab Center.

Meetings are set for 5:30 p.m. May 21 at Margaret H. Rollins Community Center, 111 Adams Ave., Lewes; and 4 p.m. May 22 at Georgetown Library, 123 W. Pine St.

The abandoned Safe Haven rescue facility in Georgetown will be sold at auction June 9. The BVSPCA intends to secure the building to provide additional services for Delaware’s most vulnerable dogs and cats, such as cruelty survivors, disaster victims, newborns and infants, animals at risk in other shelters and those requiring time and training to increase their adoptability. The town hall meetings provide a platform for the public to meet with BVSPCA leadership to learn more about the plans in advance of the auction.

The BVSPCA seeks the public’s assistance by pledging funding for the auction and subsequent repairs at the abandoned facility. Donations and pledges can be made at or by mail to: Brandywine Valley SPCA, 22918 Dupont Blvd., Georgetown, DE 19947.
