Facts about Vespa

  • Breed: Shar Pei Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Vespa is a 5 year old Shar Pei who came to the shelter as a stray. She arrived with a skin infection, which she is still dealing with, but being treated for. Vespa is a very nice dog, but, as is typical of her breed, she is hesitant with strangers and protective of the people she loves and their space. She needs a patient owner, preferably someone who is familiar with Shar Peis. She can't go to a home with kids or other dogs, but we know Vespa will blossom in the right home and will make a wonderful, incredibly loyal companion for a lucky person! She also enjoys being active and runs with the SPCA Running Team!

Please fill out an application if you'd like to jumpstart the adoption process. No appointment is necessary to come in and meet/adopt an animal unless noted differently above. Otherwise, you may come in anytime, no appointment needed to meet/adopt one of our animals! You may also fill out an application when you get here. Please note, we do NOT hold animals, nor do we accept deposits in advance. Even if you have discussed coming in to meet an animal or have an approved application with us, this does not necessarily guarantee you will get that particular puppy or dog as you must always meet the animal(s) you are interested in before being fully approved to adopt. Also note, even if approved to adopt from us, if you have a dog at home they MUST meet the dog(s) you are interested in adopting from here to ensure they get along before you can officially adopt. All Dogs and puppies are spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated (age appropriate) and come with a free 7 day Vet check from a participating Vet! Our hours are Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday's 1pm-4pm. High Kill Shelter/Southern Rescues, both Puppies and Adults are $325, All Puppies are $325 and Local Stray Adults over 1 year of age are $175. Seniors and Lonely Hearts Club members are $65.
