Fall 2013

1: What’s your name?


2: Who do you belong to?

Resident at Hillside SPCA (hopefully not for long).

3: What’s your breed?

I am a pit bull mix.

4: When & where were you born?

I am about three years old. I was born in Florida.

5: Why did you arrive at the shelter ?

My owner lost her home and had to turn me in.

6: How would you describe your personality?

I am silly and playful once I warm up to you. I am shy at first and sometimes want to hide.

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

I chew on rawhides and desecrate stuffed toys!

8: Do you get along with other dogs?

I tolerate other dogs. I may succumb to the idea of having a girl sister.

9: What would be your dream home?

I would like a quiet home. One that will treat me to walks and car rides but I prefer a home with no kids.

10: Where can your new family adopt you?

am awaiting a home at the Hillside SPCA, Pottsville, PA.

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!
