1: What’s your name?

Roxy a.k.a. “Rooooxanne….you don’t have to put on the red light.”

2: Who do you belong to?

I am a Hillside SPCA resident.

3: What’s your breed?

I am a pit bull mix.

4: When & where were you born?

I don’t remember where I was born or what town I am from, but am happy to move wherever a home can be found for me!

5: Why did you arrive at the shelter ?

I was found as a stray, but you knew my name was Roxy!

6: How would you describe your personality?

Some people call me assertive.. what can I say….girls know what they want!

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

In my free time I like to be-head stuffed animals.

8: Do you get along with other dogs?

I am selective which dogs I like. If they leave me alone we get along, if they try to sass me, I don’t stand for it! I wouldn’t mind a brother to wrestle with.

9: What would be your dream home?

Love a home where I get lots of attention and walks!

10: Where can your new family adopt you?

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!
