Who We Are - Monroe Animal League

Mission Statement

The Monroe Animal League is a PA 501(c)(3) charitable organization committed to the health and welfare of feral cats, as well as domesticated cats and dogs, in Monroe County through a spay/neuter voucher program, public awareness and financial support for emergency veterinary care. The League’s programs are 100% funded by donations and would not be possible without the cooperation of participating veterinary practices.

Monroe Animal League History

First incorporated in July 1943 as the Monroe County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, our group was known as the Monroe County SPCA Auxiliary after 1989. In order to focus on the welfare of animals in the community, rather than in shelters, on May 4, 1999, our group changed its name to Monroe Animal League.

Membership is open to everyone; however, our programs are available only to residents of Monroe County, Pennsylvania. The League depends 100% on donations and is run 100% by volunteers. Every penny of every donation is used to advance the League’s programs: a voucher program to Spay/Neuter feral cats through TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return); a spay/neuter voucher program for financially eligible owners of domestic cats and dogs; and financial assistance (up to $200) for medical emergencies paid directly to the veterinarian or clinic. More information about these programs along with eligibility information and how to apply can be found under Programs.

Monroe Animal League is not a shelter or a clinic.

2023 marks the 80 th anniversary of the League. To honor that remarkable time period, the League will embark on an 80/80 fundraiser next year asking for contributions of $80 – $1 for every year the League has helped the animals of Monroe County.
