Brandywine Valley SPCA slates town hall meetings on plans for Rescue & Rehab Center

SUSSEX COUNTY – The Brandywine Valley SPCA next week 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.

The abandoned Safe Haven rescue facility in Georgetown will be sold at auction on June 9.

Brandywine Valley SPCA plans to secure the former Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary east of Georgetown to serve as a rescue and rehab center.

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.

Town hall meetings are scheduled Monday, May 21 at 5:30 p.m. at the Margaret H. Rollins Community Center, 111 Adams Ave., Lewes, and Tuesday, May 22 at 4 p.m. at Georgetown Public Library, 123 W Pine St., Georgetown.

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 Boulevard, Georgetown, DE 19947.
