Story
Khan is a very handsome young pit bull looking for an active/structured house. Having been abandoned at the shelter, we don't know any specifics about his background. We do know that he LOVES humans and craves attention! Khan is extremely energetic and very strong. When we first met him he had absolutely no manners. He can get overstimulated and will jump or nip to get your attention. He has completed Intro-to-Training class twice and walks with a Gentle Leader and a chest harness. He will benefit greatly from continued consistency with his training and commands. He is very smart, and he shows that he can absolutely be a Good Dog with consistent handling (and the right yummy incentives). After more than a year here at the shelter, he is much calmer and better able to process his surroundings. His loves are car rides, walks, swimming, and PEOPLE! At 65-70 lbs his strength can be a challenge. His jump has a 5-6 foot clearance from standing! Khan has not shown any signs of aggression toward other dogs but he does forget his manners in an effort to play with them. We have not specifically cat-tested Khan, but he has been in our lobby where he can see cats and he is very interested in them. We suspect that he would chase anything smaller than himself.

Story
Hello, my name is Oso! I was brought into the shelter for a chance at a better life, since my previous home left me malnourished and neglected. I am gaining back my strength and condition, but I have been resilient and have not lost all trust in people. I have been living in a foster home because kennel life is very stressful for me. I am dog and cat friendly, so I would be happy to live with other animals. I have gotten much healthier and happier so now I can't wait to find my furever home! I do need some work on crate training, but old dogs can still learn new tricks! I have historically shown some over-arousal behavior and do have some handling sensitivity, so any kids in the home should be 13 and older. Although I am a mature gentleman I love to play and have plenty of spunk. I deserve a comfortable home and to never feel alone or hungry again. Would you like to adopt me? ---This dog is in foster care and is available BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please fill out an application to schedule an appointment. Find the application here: https://www.pspca.org/form/adoption-application-lancaster or stop by in person to fill them out. If you have resident dogs, we require up to date vaccine records for them as well.---The Pennsylvania SPCA - Lancaster Center848 S.

Story
My name is Betty. I'm a sweet older girl looking for my forever home. I can be a little nervous at first but as I warm up I am sweet and affectionate. I love the company of my people friends and love to be close by. I am not a fan of other dogs and would prefer to be the only dog in the home. I have not been around cats before but may be open to trying. Do you have room for an old girl to rest and enjoy her golden years? If you think your home is right for me then come down and lets meet.---If you are interested in adopting, please come prepared --bring a photo ID, proof of address, and everyone in the home including resident dogs with vaccination history.

Story
Hi, I'm Caillian! I am a puppy who was living in a hoarder's home, and now I am looking for my furever home where I can be the center of your world. I have a lot to learn as far as basic commands and canine manners, but I am eager to please and ready to learn. I have shown some reactivity towards other dogs, so I will need a proper introduction to see if I can have a doggy companion. However, I may do ok with cats, but have yet to meet one! I also find younger children to be a bit scary, but may do ok if they respect my nervousness. If you think I would be a good fit with your family, come down to the shelter to meet me!---Our facility is open daily from 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM, meet and greet appointments are highly recommended. If you are interested in meeting an animal please contact us via email at Lancaster@pspca.org to learn more about our adoption process and to set a meet and greet appointment.

Story
Hi, I'm Prince! I am a big, goofy ball of energy and love. I was living in a hoarder's home, and now I am looking for my furever home where I can be the center of your heart. I have a lot to learn as far as basic commands and canine manners, but I am eager to please and very food motivated. I am open to living with other animals given proper introduction, although I can come on a bit strong. I am not a fan of sharing what's mine, so any kids in the home should be 13 and older, who can respect my boundaries. I could be a wonderful addition to your family if you'll give me a chance. I am a lovely pup who deserves a better life and companionship. Will you adopt me?---If you are interested in adopting, please come prepared --bring a photo ID, proof of address, and everyone in the home including resident dogs with vaccination history.

Story
Hello, my name is Jewel! I originally came to the shelter as a stray a few years ago, and then I found what I thought was my furever home. They gave me a good few years but sadly had to return me when they were moving somewhere I couldn't go. I am a senior gal with a heart of gold and I just want somewhere comfortable to lay my head and companionship from people. I like to be the center of your world so I cannot live with cats or dogs. I can sometimes be a little weary of strange men, but food is the quickest way to my heart. Since I am an older pup and I am set in my ways, I do ask that any children in the home be 5 and older. I may not be around for a long time but I will certainly be a good time! I hope you will consider adopting a lovely sweetheart such as myself.---If you are interested in adopting, please come prepared --bring a photo ID, proof of address, and everyone in the home including resident dogs with vaccination history.

Story
Tommy is a very loving dog. He is 12 years old but still gets around well and enjoys walks. He is not adjusting well to our new baby, and gets very jealous. We have brought in a trainer to work with him, but his behaviors are worsening. He would do best in a quieter home with no young kids. He would make a great companion dog and loves to sit on laps. He deserves to be the main focus of a family. He doesn't do well with cats. He has not had any issues with our dogs. He does chase woodland animals. Any questions please reach out. This is a very hard decision and we want him to live his golden years in a quiet and relaxed setting. Thank you for reading about Tommy boy.
