Adopt A Doggie

April 9, 2011      


           It is once again time to feature a dog that is in need of a home.  The dog we have chosen is one of our Most Wanted Flower Pets in the month of April; this is a program the Delco SPCA has to help find homes for a few special dogs that have been there for a while, during the month of April.  From the moment I met Lola I was taken by her good nature.  As you can see from the pictures she is a young dog that enjoys lots of affection.
           If you are interested in adopting Lola you can visit the Delaware County SPCA and ask for her by name or you can give her ID number which is 40826. If you have any questions feel free to call them at 610-566-1370.  You can also check out their web site  I really hope one of you out there can find it in your heart to give this truly deserving dog a home.  Since Lola is one of the Most Wanted Flower Pets, the fee for adoption is dramatically reduced to $20.11 through the month of April.

          I got the chance to have a little play time with Lola and she was so willing to please, and such a lovable dog it is hard for me to understand why she has been there so long.  Lola has been without a loving home for far too long.  I hope someone out there can find it in their hearts to adopt Lola and give her a home, where she can be given the chance she deserves.  Can you be the one to help this cruelty survivor stay healthy and happy for many years to come?

Scarlet Needs a Family

It is once again that time of the month when I make my visit to the Delaware County SPCA in search of a dog that needs help in finding a home.  I walked in and was greeted by Justina, and she informed me that she had a dog that was in need of some help finding a home.  They had her in the back office and I was told her name was Scarlet.

         Justina lead me back to the office where I saw Scarlet laying on a makeshift doggie bed they had set up for her.  Scarlet saw me come in and immediately bounced over to where I was standing and very cheerfully and not so subtly made it known she wanted some love.  I stooped down and started to pet her, she was such a happy dog.  I still cannot understand why they were having such a hard time adopting her out.  Scarlet is a pit bull, and that may be part of the reason, but anyone who spends more than five seconds with this dog would know what a great find she was.  It is such a shame pit bulls have a bad reputation.

         Scarlet was a stray as well as pregnant when she was found.  She was brought to the Delco SPCA on December 12th.   She had her pups not to long after she was brought in.  Of course there was no problem finding homes for her pups.  Everyone loves a puppy.  Scarlet remains, still in need of a happy home.  The folks down at the SPCA let me know that Scarlet loves children.  I was told that she gets very happy and playful whenever a child is near.  She would make a great family dog.  I even considered taking her myself, but my hands are full with the two dogs I have.  I have put an extra effort out in trying to find Scarlet a home.  I have asked friends and family to put the word out.  If you are reading this and you are thinking of adopting a dog, you cannot do much better that to adopt Scarlet.

         Since Scarlet has been there for a while the adoption fee has been reduced quite a bit in order to help her find a home.  She would be great for any family with children.   Children should be over the age of 8.  She is not so good with cats however.  If you have a dog, you can bring your dog there so they can meet and see if Scarlet would be a good fit.   Her ID number is 38841, if you are interested you can feel free to drop by and see this loveable dog for yourself.  If you have any questions feel free to call them at 610-566-1370.  You can also check out their web site  I really hope one of you out there can find it in your heart to give this truly deserving dog a home, and help to keep her healthy and happy.

Monkey Needs A Home

          I have decided to begin a new page here at DoggieDiaries4U. After writing the article on the Delaware County SPCA, entitled Help Stop Abuse, Rescue A Dog, I found myself thinking of all the dogs there that are in need of a loving home. I thought this blog would be a great way to help find some well deserving dogs a good home. I am going to feature a new dog once a month. If you are thinking of getting a dog, there is no better place to start your search than at the Delaware County SPCA.

          The Dog we are featuring today is Monkey. He is a miniature pinscher, his ID# is 39303. He is an older dog that has some special needs. He has no teeth so wet dog food is a must for this little guy. He has been at the shelter for over a month now. I can tell you personally after visiting this guy he has a lot of love to give.

          After speaking with Justina, at the SPCA facility, about some of their special needs dog she told me that they had special programs for dogs like the one that is being featured here, as well as for seniors. I asked if she could send along the information on these programs, she did and I have posted below the programs she sent along. Thanks for the information Justina!

Seniors Saving Seniors Program:
People 55+ years old can adopt any cat approximately 5 years or older for only $25.50, and dog 5 years or older for $55.50. They will also get a certificate for a free wellness check and vaccines for the following year.

Special Needs Support Program:
In effort to keep pets in their homes and not have them turned over if families cannot afford medication or food, if people that have pets or adopt a pet that needs regular medicines or special food, we can purchase the medicine or food through our vet here at the shelter to save them a significant amount of money.

Monkey would apply to both!

          If you find yourself thinking about giving Monkey a loving home please contact the SPCA at 610-566-1370. They also have a great website where you can see all the animals up for adoption at Don't forget to give Monkeys ID Number 39303.

          Thank you for reading, I hope someone out there can give Monkey a loving home where he will be kept healthy and happy for years to come.
