Fun, Educational & Totally Paw-some

Our outreach programs educate the public on showing compassion towards our furry friends in a fun, accessible environment.

Birthday Parties

The BVSPCA is dedicated to promoting the welfare and humane treatment of animals, so why not start early? Birthday celebrations at the BVSPCA teach children how to be compassionate to our four-legged friends. It’s sure to be a howling good time!

Parties can be scheduled on Saturdays & Sundays between the hours of 11am and 5pm. Please provide a few additional dates in the event that your preferred date is not available. We require a $50.00 non-refundable deposit to secure your date and time. Minimum age requirement is 7 years old.

To schedule your party today, email birthdays@bvspca.org (PA) or emartinez@bvspca.org (DE).
