We like to play with squeak toys and wrestle with each other.

We are good with other dogs!

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!
