NORRISTOWN, PA — The District Attorney’s Office recognizes the inability of animal victims to voice their pain so we continue to provide that voice and fight for them in court. Beyond battling for voiceless animal victims in court, our prosecutors have again organized a collection drive to benefit the Montgomery County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Anyone wishing to donate blankets, towels, canned pet food, animal toys or other items to benefit the Montgomery County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals can drop the items in boxes located in the lobby of the District Attorney’s Office on the fourth floor of the Montgomery County Courthouse and by the security checkpoints on the plaza level and first floor of the Montgomery County Courthouse.
