4: When & where were you born?

I was born a few years back…in a town I don’t recall!

5: Why did you arrive at the shelter ?

I was turned in as a “stray” though I knew the name the lady had given for me, so I feel my “owner” didn’t know how to tell the nice shelter ladies she no longer wanted me.

I am a good girl! I love to go for walks, I love my hiney scratched, I love hot dogs for a snack, and I love warm blankets!

7: What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time, I like to nap or chew on a rawhide.

8: Do you get along with other dogs?

Yes, I am good with other dogs, though a home with a male brother would be best for me!

9: What would be your dream home?

My dream home is a home where I would be 1.) loved 2.) adored 3.) fed good food 4.) loved 5.) loved…I want to be loved!!!

10: Where can your new family adopt you?

I am ready for adoption at the Hillside SPCA, Pottsville, PA 17901.

Hillside S.P.C.A., Inc is a Pennsylvania non-profit corporation that provides animal welfare and operates an animal shelter facility located at SPCA Road, North Manheim Township, Pennsylvania. The shelter currently houses hundreds of cats and dog with the average being over 200+ cats and 100+ dogs. During the past several years, the Hillside S.P.C.A., Inc. has taken in well over 1,000 animals per year.

The Hillside S.P.C.A. does not put a time limit on how long an animal will be maintained at the shelter. They give each animal accepted or rescued every attempt at adoption possible. What also sets the Hillside aside from other shelters is that the animals are not sentenced to a life in a crate, but are free to play and interact with others throughout the day.

For further information on how to help, volunteer, or adopt please visit the Hillside S.P.C.A. Out-of-state residents and our friends in NYC are welcome!
