GERONIMO! That''s what you when you jump, feet first into a lot of fun. It''s an apropos name for a guy like me. When you are senior canine, you have got to take chances and enjoy the little things. I''m always down for an adventure and with summer just starting, I bet we can explore greenway trails and creeks! I''m always down for a play session with some of my younger buddies. While I a wait for my forever family, I enjoy the company of my canine bro in my foster home. The awesome thing about an older gentleman like me is I know how to treat the ladies and lads with respect. I''m house trained, am good about not going to be jumping for attention like those wild teenagers, AND I''m an expert snuggler! Are you ready to make this senior''s day? Adopt me right away! I am full grown at 60 lbs.
*Just like me, my medical history is a little more sophisticated than the other canines. I''m currently living in a foster home- please speak with an adoption counselor for more details.*
~ My adoption fee is $95.00. ~

About SPCA of Wake County

About Our Shelter...

The SPCA of Wake County is a private, non-profit organization that serves the pets and people of the Wake County community.

Founded in Raleigh in 1967, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Wake County is dedicated to creating a more humane community where every adoptable animal has a home. Each year the SPCA rehomes over 3,000 animals through its innovative adoption programs and lost and found efforts!

The guiding mission statement of the SPCA remains as relevant now as it was when it was written in 1967: To protect, shelter and promote the adoption of homeless animals; to provide education about responsible pet ownership and to reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter programs.
