Story
Hi! Sonya is a sweet 7-year-old girl who loves people! She gets along with my sister's dog however lunges at other dogs while we are on walks so I'm confused about how she is with other dogs. She is also wonderful with my three children under the age of 12. She is 100% home and potty trained but is due for several vaccines as of recently. Please feel free to as any other questions on anything I may have left out. I adopted Sonya myself and this was my first time owning a dog, I hit the jackpot and she made it so easy for me.

Story
Hi, my name is Sonya! I am a sweet ol' gal who just wants to find my furever home. I did have one for a few months but unfortunately my owner had to move and couldn't take me with her. I don't deserve to be stuck in the shelter again. I have plenty of pep in my step and a whole lotta love to share. I am open to living with other animals and even kids with proper introduction. I am truly a delightful doggie and I would make a fantastic companion. I can't wait to find my people who will snuggle with me on the sofa and take me out for adventures and play! Maybe it could be you and your family?!---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. We are open daily 12-6pm.---The Pennsylvania SPCA - Lancaster Center848 S. Prince St. Lancaster PA 17603Kennel #16516717-917-6979lancaster@pspca.org

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, so dog savvy kids 5+ that can respect my nervousness are the ones I'm looking for. 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, housetraining, and canine manners, but I am eager to please and very food motivated. I am open to living with other animals given proper introduction. I have displayed a prey drive, so I may not be a good fit with cats, but I'm willing to try. I was briefly adopted and was happy to live with two other dogs, but unfortunately one of them didn't like me being the third wheel. I have shown some resource guarding behavior while at the shelter, so any kids in the home should be 13 and older, who can respect my boundaries. My adopter did say that I was fine about sharing my toys and food with the other dogs though. 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.

Size

Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
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.

Hudson is a 1.5 year old handsome boy who loves belly rubs and long walks. He has received basic and C.L.A.S.S phD dog training. He knows basic commands and is crate trained. While he is a very smart boy, it has become clear he would prefer to be an only child. Our home of 3 children and 2 cats is not an ideal fit. We are hoping to find him a loving home where he will be much happier.

Story
We adopted Gidget at 8 weeks old from a local family who had a litter of puppies. She will be 7 in August 2024. Gidget is a total lapdog despite her size and loves love. She is affectionate and constantly wants to be around you. Unfortunately, we are a busy family and are not able to be with her as often as she needs. Gidget will do well in a home with someone who is home most of the time. She gets along with our cat and the children. She also gets along with our other dog but is questionable around other dogs.

Story
Calling all Pitty lovers! Synclair the roughly 1.5 year old, 45lb male Pitbull is up for adoption! He is blind but don't, "pity him it doesn't hold him back one bit. Hello everyone, my name is Synclair! I was an owner surrender for no fault of my own; my family just couldn't keep me and had been very sad to let me go. They tell me I'm blind, but honesty I don't think I am at a disadvantage. Loud household noises don't frighten me at all, and I am a smart pup who can learn the layout of my environment quickly. I do best with a routine, it helps me know what to expect and curb some slight anxiety. I'm a sweet gentle boy who absolutely loves everyone. My favorite things include snuggling, playing with my toys, and getting treaties. I walk okay on the leash with some guidance from my foster mom, and I have mastered getting up and down stairs! I am also quite skilled at getting up into the car for rides around town. Still working on my relationship with my crate, I have been doing really well sleeping in my crate at night now. I do cry out when my foster family leaves me in the crate to go out on the town without me, however I settle down eventually. I ring a bell that my foster family has set up for me by the door when I want to go outside; this has helped me well in eliminating my accidents. However, they tell me regression is common in new environments. My foster mom says I am a smart boy and will catch on quick in my new home with a routine. Still working on some manners, I am still a big puppy, and little cheeky. My foster mom has a full house with lots of noise so when I get caught doing something I shouldn't, I'm very easily redirected. My foster family includes two small children, and other than occasionally bumping into them when they are too quiet (which is not often), we get along great! I really love to chow down on my dog food, a puzzle feeder would be best, so I take my time and not eat too fast. I Would be okay with a dog friendly cat that didn't mind me sniffing and being all up in their space. I do love to play but I am only mildly energetic, mostly I am calm cool and collected. I will get excited when you come home after being away, but what dog who loves you wouldn't? I have been Microchipped, neutered, vetted, and up to date on vaccines. My foster mom says I'm truly a sweet and special dog that will make one lucky family happy. If I sound like a good fit for you, please apply! Currently being fostered in Reading PA. Zoes House Kennel #9117 Sinking Spring, PA 19608
