Chilli's fosterer writes...

Hi All! My name is Chilli and I am a super friendly Chihuahua mix! And, I am an adorably handsome boy, if you don’t mind me saying so! Someone found me wandering all by myself and I ended up at the Prince George’s shelter. No one came to claim me, so I went up for adoption at the shelter, but that didn't work out either. Then the PGSPCA took me and placed me in a loving foster home with my foster brothers!

I would make an awesome friend! I have a very upbeat personality and I love to play! My foster brothers like that I have good manners and play well with them at our playtimes. Did I say that I am always ready to play??!!! Long walks and games of fetch always make me happy. Also, I know that you will love teaching me new tricks and commands. If you have other dogs, that’s fine… I definitely don’t mind sharing, but I also love one-on-one time for cuddling!

My foster mom says I am a great companion and quite the conversationalist! I am extremely smart, too! House-training and crate-training were a breeze for me and I am ready for many more opportunities to learn from you! I am looking for that special person to share my life with… If you are the right person, I definitely choose you as my best friend!

If you are interested in Chilli, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application (http://www.pgspca.org/adopt/online-adoption-application/).

Chilli is expecting to attend the next adoption show, November 26th at the Bowie PetSmart from 12:30 to 1:30, although there is always a chance that plans may need to change at the last minute.

We are an all-volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our
animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside
of the Baltimore/DC area.

About SPCA/Humane Society Of Prince George's County Maryland

About Our Rescue Group...

The PGSPCA is a nonprofit organization of volunteers dedicated to animal welfare. We are chartered by the State of Maryland, but we receive no state or county funds. Our activities are supported solely by contributions, dues and fundraising events.

We have three main objectives:

• To reduce the number of unwanted litters of dogs and cats through our progressive spay/neuter program – We have altered more than 20,000 animals over the past five years, many of them at no charge;

• To prevent cruelty to animals and all animal suffering through humane education, neglect and cruelty investigations, protective legal action, and an active dog and cat adoption program – We receive about 1,000 calls a month for cruelty investigations, spay and neuter assistance and adoption requests;

• To protect all animals against suffering and abuse through education on legislation affecting the protection of all animals – We regularly educate the public and provide testimony about animal welfare to county and state legislators.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We don't have a central shelter facility, so the best place to meet our adoptable cats and dogs is at our adoption shows! If you have previously filled out an application, please bring it with you to the show! Please e-mail with any questions. We cannot guarantee that an animal you want to meet will be at the show. Please check the animal's online listing the day before the show and we will do our best to let you know if he/she will be there!

We hold three adoption events each month, on Saturdays from 12 noon to 2 pm.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoptions begin with a visit to one of our adoption events. The adoption coordinator and/or the pet's foster parent will review the applications received. The applicant (if any) whose responses best fit the needs of the particular pet will generally be contacted within a week to schedule a home visit. A vet check and personal reference is also required prior to visiting your home. Our non-refundable adoption fee is $180 for dogs and $75 for cats. The fee covers spay/neuter, core vaccines (distemper and rabies), deworming, microchipping, and the general care of the animals. Per our contract, if you cannot keep your adopted pet for any reason, it must be returned to our program. We will try to find it a new home.
