Gizzy's Story...
Gizzy is in foster care. Please go to for more information and to complete an application to adopt.

Hello, friends! My name is Gizzy and I am looking for a place to call home forever. My "sister" Shadow (also available for adoption through Finding Shelter) and I were living with our elderly, human dad on his farm. It was just the three of us and we spent all day with him. It was pretty great. But our dad got really sick with Leukemia. He knew that he was not going to get better but was so worried about us. We came to Finding Shelter as the first two dogs in the Finding Peace program, a special program designed to help animals who need a place to go when their humans get sick. Anyway, we moved into our awesome foster home and recently heard that our former human dad passed away. It was so sad, but he felt better knowing that we would be safe. I would love to find a home with my sister Shadow. I just love to be with my people. I follow my foster mom around the house and cry when she leaves. Finding someone who is retired or works from home or can take me to work with them would be splendid! When you do leave and then come home, I will welcome you by sitting up and waving to you. I have mastered the trick and show off my talent all of the time. Basically, I am a snugly and sweet girl who cannot wait to move into a loving home where I can stay forever. I will show you every day how thankful I am that you chose me and think that I am special.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gizzy, a Norristown Pomeranian dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pomeranian for sale in Norristown, or seeking a Pomeranian dog from a breeder in Norristown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Norristown already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Norristown breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pomeranian breeders who help with Pomeranian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Norristown paves the way for another one to be saved.
