The Brandywine Valley SPCA this week announced that it would be buying the old Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary in Georgetown.

WBOC reports that the organization will turn it into a rescue and rehab center.

SPCA officials said that it would allow the group to provide longer term care for the animals who need it before adoption.

Such animals include those who are the survivors of cruelty, newborns or disaster victims.

The building is set to be auctioned off in early June and has been empty for the last five years.

The animal shelter group says that the facility could house more than 2-thousand animals a year.
