Hound Dog Adoption Special

HoundDogSaleWith our September adoption special on black and black/white felines now over, we are excited to announce a new adoption special for the month of October! Continuing with our efforts to highlight the often overlooked animals, October’s adoption special is for canines and features all of our super special hound and hound mixes!

As with the black cats, many shelters are overrun with a variety of hounds, beagles, and hound mixes. These furry friends are regularly passed up in favor of other breeds of dogs and we just don’t understand why! Hounds and hound mixes are often some of the most loving, silly companions you’ll ever meet. So for the month of October, all of the hound and hound mixes in our shelter are 50% off! So follow your noses to the SPCA and come visit the many wonderful hound friends we have here patiently awaiting their forever families!
