Better Days Animal League Announces Re-organization

Due to numerous administrative issues surrounding previous management, Better Days Animal League (BDAL) is undergoing a total re-organization.  During the transition, BDAL will continue to operate through the dedication of its volunteers and Board of Directors.

Because of previous financial deficits incurred, BDAL has been forced to close thrift stores, and considering the sale of the Shippensburg shelter location.  The Chambersburg and Fort Loudon thrift stores remain open and are the primary sources of financial support for daily shelter operations.  BDAL will further continue fundraising efforts through the upcoming months to assist in meeting financial obligations.

Additionally, we are in the process of transferring all dogs to the Chambersburg shelter.  With this closure, we are unable to take in any new animals, as our primary focus is on the animals currently under our care.

Please note, BDAL’s new mailing address is PO Box 57, Shippensburg, PA 17257, and the new telephone number is 717-217-9819.

We encourage visiting our website at to learn more about BDAL, view adoptable pets, submit a volunteer request, and see upcoming fundraising events.  BDAL remains a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all donations are tax deductible.

The community’s understanding during this transition is extremely important to our future success.  BDAL Board Members and Volunteers are most appreciative of all of the support provided by those we have faithfully served over the last several years.  We hope we can depend on your continued support going forward as we endure this unfortunate series of events.  Continued patronage of our thrift stores and participation in our fundraisers will allow us to continue to care for our over 100 furry residents.  Additionally, we are always in need of reliable volunteers at our thrift stores and shelter, so please consider donating your time to help our cause.
