Adult cat Royal was actually adopted yesterday. His new family met him Tuesday and just had to have him. Alex and Bella who came in together got to go home together! They love each other and we are very happy that they were able to stay together.
Canines Oliver and Mirabelle found their homes today as well! They both trotted out the front door with excitement!

While Rascal is a favorite of many staff and volunteers, he is anxiously waiting and hoping that someone will fall in love with him! Will you be Rascal's new best friend!? #adoptdontshop #adopt #makehomehappen #dcspca #singleandreadytomingle ... See MoreSee Less
Bonnie has been with us for a little over a year now, making her our longest staying feline. Bonnie has had some difficult times here at the shelter and did not adjust very well. She seems to have gotten passed that now and is ready for a forever home! Bonnie is her own special girl and would prefer to be the only pet in the home and, after all, with a personality as big as Bonnie’s, you don't need anyone else! #singleandreadytomingle #adoptdontshop #sassy #dcspca #adopt ...

Three of our awesome dogs found their new families today!
Daisy was only on the adoption floor for 1 day when her new parents came in and fell in love with her infectiously happy personality! Bailey met her new family yesterday and knew that she would be a great fit for their family. She will be going home with 2 human siblings who are more than excited to be getting a canine sister! Roger met his family yesterday and he was so happy that they came today to make him their newest member!
We also had 4 cats head to a new life today!
Garfield is a FIV+ kittie who has met his parents a couple times now and they decided that he was the perfect fit for their family! Dunkin's (camera shy) new parents were very happy to come in today and pick the newest member of their family! Nala and Baby girl were also adopted today! Their new family was looking a pair of kitties and they were the lucky pair!
Congratulations to all of our animals and their new families! The adoption center will reopen Tuesday at 2pm!
Sidney is that strong independent type… and all she needs is you! This girl is absolutely beautiful and definitely marches to the beat of her own drum! She LOVES to play with her Nylabones and often tries to talk to them! She can’t quite figure out why they don’t talk back. Sidney is looking to be your one and only… will you be hers? #singleandreadytomingle #adopt #adoptdontshop #dcspca #makehomehappen ... See MoreSee Less

Congratulations to all!

Lovable doesn't even begin to describe Maya! She is so happy and sweet that she just can’t help but give you kisses! She is sure to greet everyone that passes by her kennel and is hoping that one day one of those people will pick her! With all of the love she has to give, you won’t even notice you only have one pet! #makehomehappen #adoptdontshop #adopt #dcspca #singleandreadytomingle #seniorsweetheart ... See MoreSee Less
Elaina is a beautiful young adult who is looking for a quiet home where she can be nice and cozy! She is very affectionate, but frightens easily. She would do best in a less active home. She loves to be pet and she REALLY loves cat nip. Elaina may be okay with another cat in a home, but would probably prefer to be the only four legged family member! #adoptdontshop #adopt #singleandreadytomingle #dcspca ... See MoreSee Less
We are looking for 3 very special adopters for 3 special needs cats that we took in from the recent cruelty case. These 3 kitties have all been tested, vaccinated and are very friendly! They won't be hanging out in Cat Land due to their needs but are all available for adoption to the right home!
Mattie has a scar on one of his eyes which will probably impact his vision! But that doesn't stop him from being a friendly guy! He recently had polyps removed from his throat so when he purrs he sounds a little like a cooing raccoon.He will need to have his antibiotics continued while he heals from polyp surgery and he needs a home that understands he may always be a little raspy and congested!
Sophie is likely suffering from a neurological condition that causes her to be a little unsteady on her feet but don't worry, she isn't in any pain.. she just walks to her own beat! Sophie plays hard to get with people.. she flirts,flirts,flirts and then runs away...and then flirts some more! Sophie needs a family that will understand she will always be a little uncoordinated!
Roman likely has a neurological condition that will always make his head tilt to the side. He also multiple throats polyps that were removed so he will most likely always be a little wheezy and raspy. He is very affectionate but needs a family that can continue his medication for his throat polyps and understand that they might return.. and that he may always have a little head tilt!
As the weekend nears we had 3 phenomenal adoptions today!
Kitty Zsa Zsa is a young adult that now has a place to call home! She was barely on the adoption floor before her new family came in and instantly fell in love! She is heading home with 3 human siblings and 2 canine siblings! After receiving tons of love she jumped right into the carrier and was ready to begin her new adventure!
Now onto the canine side! We had 2 awesome boys get adopted today! Grover who has been in a foster home for quite some time now trying to get used to human interaction. His foster mom decided that today was going to be the day that we drop the “foster” part. Neither Grover or his mom could have been more excited to make it official today! The other very special canine is Mr. Tony Bologna, ok well that’s not his official name but we here at the SPCA couldn’t be more happy for Tony. He is heading home where he has 2 human sisters waiting for him. They met Tony on Wednesday and couldn’t wait to take him home!
Tony's a great dog he listens really good he's calm you can tell he's very loyal he knows who brought him home he follows me everywhere I barely got any sleep lastnight he kept walking on my side of the bed woke me up with his tail wagging hitting the dresser lol I take a shower he goes and sits next to the door I lay down he lays down the girls love him thanks for all the help from the spca great people really care about the animals if I could take them all I would lol
Thank you, Grover's mom, for making it official. He's come such a long way. ❤
Our beloved Ares is coming up on his one year anniversary! We are truly hoping that he will not be celebrating it with us, but in his very own home! Ares is known for squeaking his toys down the hallway, and then dropping them outside. He then, of course, expects his two-legged friend to carry it the rest of the way! Another fun fact about Ares is that when you start to take him outside, he gets so excited he drinks as much water as he can! Ares is silly, and always so happy! He has lived with people of all ages and would be a great addition to a family looking for their one and only! #makehomehappen #seniorsweetheart #adoptdontshop #adopt #dcspca ... See MoreSee Less
What a shame. Everyone wants the cute puppy and as a volunteer and advocate for adoption, I can honestly say that adopting an older dog is truly an amazing experience. They have so much love to give and ask for so little. You will never regret adopting an older dog!
No you won't. I took Dreamer she was a 3 yr old. She is such a joy to have.
Love this guy
He is a great dog
Ares would be a great best friend; he is a great listener and an easy walk...
We have the "Unicorn" of cats available on our adoption floor!!
Alex is a male Calico who came in with his best friend Bella and we are hoping to find them a home together! They are both very affectionate and of course strikingly beautiful! ! The center opens tomorrow at 2pm come on in and take a walk through to see what we have available! ... See MoreSee Less
Kitten Count Olaf was scooped right up today! His new family adopted from us a few months ago and came in look for a playmate for their feline at home! They felt he had just the right amount of playfulness for them.
Will you come put a ring on it!? Kevina is a single lady waiting to start a new relationship! Come on in and meet her, this girl is an absolute love and needs a shoulder to rest her head on! #makehomehappen #foreverhome #singleandreadytomingle #dcspca #singleladies ... See MoreSee Less
Sweet Charlotte has been with us for about 10 months now, and that's just too long! This beautiful girl is playful, but also enjoys her quiet time.
