We are in the last week of Adopt a Senior Pet month and getting our first snowfall. This girl, Lilo Daly (A17911423), at the Philadelphia branch of the PSPCA, is a perfect fit for both occasions. She will keep you warm or take you on a snowy adventure with her fuzzy coat and sweet disposition. She is a healthy, strong 10 year old husky mix who has plenty of life to live but a calm indoor personality that will be perfect for long cold nights.
Lilo D. is friendly, well-mannered and appears to be housebroken. She is a featured pet of the Erie Avenue All-Stars, a group of dedicated volunteers who advocate for the great animals at our local PSPCA by sharing their personal experiences with the animals along with great photos and posts about them. (Like their Facebook page) and you can email them for more information about this girl at PSPCAErie@yahoo.com.
For more details about adopting Lilo Daly, visit the adoption page of pspca.org or email email@example.com. You can also call 215.426.6300 ext. 234, 251 or 244 or go right to the shelter at 350 E. Erie Avenue and meet this sweet senior in person. The PSPCA Adoption Center is open 365 days a year (M-F: 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sat., Sun. & holidays: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) to accommodate any schedule. Download and fill out the adoption application in advance so you are ready to take her home.
Fostering for older dogs is often just as important. It is hard for them to be comfortable or relax in a shelter after years in a home with a family. A safe place where they can stay until they find a forever home could save their life and keep them from deteriorating emotionally. You still have the full support of the PSPCA’s staff and volunteers and all medical coverage is provided as well.
A foster home for the PSPCA not only saves sweet seniors like Lilo, but also saves the life of another homeless animal the PSPCA can take in to fill her space. For more information on the PSPCA’s foster program, check out the Volunteer/Foster section on their website and fill out the application on that page. Foster homes get the first chance at adopting too, so when you fall in love with your foster, you get priority at being their last home.
Please consider fostering or adopting a senior pet in need like Lilo Daly and share her information with anyone who might be able to help. For more information on Lilo, the PSPCA, adopting or fostering a senior dog, or local seniors in need, see these links:
