DELAWARE COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) — Under a recent extension agreement, the Delaware County SPCA will continue to take in stray animals until the end of the year.

In an effort to become a no-kill shelter in 2012, the Delaware County SPCA let the county know it was getting out of the animal control business and it would have to find other means starting this July for the boarding and care of stray animals.

SPCA spokeswoman Justina Calgiano says, “Unfortunately, there have been not so many developments in terms of building a new shelter, so we–over the past week and a half–we have been in negotiations with the county to work out some form of extension of animal control services.”

The county is planning to build an animal control facility for strays in Darby Township, but as the efforts continue, the issue of who will run it is still up in the air.
