It is the first time the agency has cut back from a seven-days-a-week service in its 141-year history. Earlier in October, the organization announced that it laid off or cut back the hours of 22 of its employees.

The SPCA is facing a $3.5 million deficit.

It is unclear what effect the once-a-week closure will have on adoptions, but the SPCA says it will expand hours on weekdays and weekends.
