Bambi's fosterer writes...

Bambi (AKA plain brown dog) is a young spayed female, medium-sized
with short to medium coat - friendly but a bit tentative with new
friends. She ignores the cat at foster home and her best buddy at
present is a mixed poodle that is close to her size. Would probably
be good pet for older kids - active and might bowl over small
children.

A single family house with fenced yard (necessary) is recommended as
she will sometime protest bark when crated and you first leave
(although can be distracted with a milkbone or chew treat).
Otherwise, does well in a crate when alone and at night.

Obedience training is suggested (she knows sit but not good at come or
other basics). House training is good but watch for hints of need.
She does not have any chewing problems and can be quiet when indoors.

Bambi originally came into the local shelter as a stray. They suspect
that she was hit by a car when running loose as she came in with a
broken pelvis. However, after a few weeks of crate rest, everything
has healed up well and she is ready to run and play with her new
family. Could you be it?

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

Bambi is expecting to attend the next adoption show, December 10th at the Big Bad Woof in Hyattsville, although there's always a possibility that plans will 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.
