Countdown clock launched, director named at DelCo SPCA

Philly Dawg debuts the Delaware County stray dog and cat countdown clock today on the right side of the page. The clock ticks down to June 30, the date the Delaware County SPCA closes its doors to strays. With no countywide solution in sight, this means all roaming animals - and the good-hearted people who find them - are on their own.

Philly Dawg debuts the Delaware County stray dog and cat countdown clock today on the right side of the page.

The clock is ticking down to June 30, the date the Delaware County SPCA closes its doors to strays.  With no countywide solution in sight, this means all roaming animals - and the good-hearted people who find them - are on their own.

Meanwhile, my colleague, Mari Schaefer, reports on the latest development from the DSPCA:

The Delaware County SPCA has named interim director Richard Matelsky as executive director, effective Monday, it was announced Friday.
Matelsky, of New York City, has been at the privately run animal shelter for nine months. Previously, he was senior manager of the North Shore Animal League on Long Island for 27 years.
He has been at the helm since the Media-based shelter announced it would no longer accept stray animals from municipalities after June 30, 2011 in its effort to change to a “no-kill” policy.
