Margaret

PERSONALITY
I am an affectionate, sweet girl who is very playful. I enjoy the company of my favorite person. If I may say so myself, I am quite skilled at playing fetch, and I love a variety of toys, especially small balls I can chase.

Hobbies: Playing fetch, chasing a feather, looking out at birds
Favorite Toy: Little toy balls and string with a feather
Favorite Napping Spot: Near my favorite person, on top of a couch, a cozy chair or a bed

HOW I CAME TO THE PGSPCA
I was originally adopted out as a young kitten through the PGSPCA. I am back now because my favorite person had a serious injury.

DREAM FAMILY
I would prefer a quieter home with one or two people, with not a lot of noise. I thrive with a lot of playtime and attention. Having a lot of noise or many people coming and going makes me nervous. I am very friendly with people, but I need to meet them on my own terms.

Tiffany

Tiffany was in pretty bad condition when we picked her up from the PG shelter in December. She weighed just 6 ½ pounds and had recently been shaved due to being matted. Her eyes were in AWFUL condition and as a result, she has had multiple eye surgeries. She had her left eye removed and can only see shadows and movement with her right eye. She will need to continue with eye drops multiple times a day for the rest of her life. She doesn’t mind getting the drops in but does not like to have her eye cleaned. She also has some allergies and is currently receiving a Cytopoint shot as needed and periodic medicated baths.

She lives with 2 other small dogs and gets along well with them. I am not sure about cats and she would be best with kids over 12 years old. When the dogs start barking, she joins in and continues even after the “threat” is gone since she has no idea why she’s barking..lol.

Tiffany adjusted to her surroundings quickly and has her own room where we feed her and have pee pads laid out for her. She LOVES to eat!! She will let you know when it is mealtime and we have not found any food she does not like!! She has free rein of the home and is non-destructive when left alone (on average about 6-7 hours a day). She sleeps in my bed at night along with the rest of the dogs! I have not crated her at all. She needs to be carried down the stairs but is able to go up the stairs on her own. If there are stairs in the home, there must be a gate to prevent her from falling. We use steps for her to get on and off the couch. She loves to be on the bed and will let you know when she needs to be lifted up.

 She has recently started playing with toys and tries to play with her doggie siblings every once in a while but she just keeps barking in their face and they don’t understand what she wants. She gets happy feet when she gets excited. She also greets us at the door when we get home! She walks well on leash but is rather slow because she loves to stop and sniff everything. She also has a doggie stroller that she likes to sit in and also likes to be carried. She wants to be in the same room as you and prefers to be laying on a pillow or on your lap. We think she should have an older doggie sibling so she is never alone. She definitely likes to be part of a pack.  If you would like to add her to yours, apply today!

Josie

PERSONALITY
I like to inspect things.  You could say I was nosey, but I prefer to consider myself curious. You may be curious about my coloring. I am not your average white cat! Not with my calico tail! I am laid-back and quite docile and I like to curl up on the couch with my foster mom. 

Hobbies: Napping
Favorite Toy:  String on a stick and paper bags
Favorite Napping Spot:  On top of the cat tree

HOW I CAME TO THE PGSPCA
I came to PGSPCA alone and pregnant.  They took care of me and realized that I was sweet and gentle enough to be adopted.   I was adopted but a couple of years later I found myself at the PG County Animal Shelter.  This was a very scary place to be.  Luckily, PGSPCA came and got me and put me in a new foster home where I’ve been able to get comfortable again.

DREAM FAMILY
I am an older cat so I want a family that has good napping spots.  I like to cuddle with my foster mom while she watches TV or is on the computer but I don’t interfere with the keyboard.  I want a calm house where I can play a little and then have a good nap.  I am sweet and loving and will be a great companion!

Prince

Prince was found as a stray and is really happy to be back in a home! He enjoys being near his family in a lap or at your feet. He also really likes walking on a leash. He seems to get along with his foster family’s small dogs but is definitely more interested in his people. He has nice house manners.

Prince has a few things he would like to say to birds/lawnmowers/etc and might not be a great apartment dog, especially if his family is not home a lot. He also is petite and would probably do better with adults or a family without small children. He is a sweet guy and will definitely make a great new family member!

Cherry. I’m on hold!

Due to the large number of applications we have received for Cherry already, we are not currently accepting new ones until we have a chance to process the existing ones. If you have already submitted an application, we will be in touch sometime in the next week or so.

If you can’t tell from my photos, I am a schnauzer mixed with joy and love… and maybe some corgi, since I have really short legs. But I don’t shed!

I live with my foster family: 3 chihuahuas and a yorkie-mix (2 boys and 2 girls). I am selective about who I like. So, if you plan to adopt me, I will need to meet all my new brothers and sisters first.

My mom says I’m really smart. I saw how she makes my brothers and sisters sit and wait to be released for dinner, so I did that, too. I am motivated by food and treats and would be willing to learn new tricks for a cookie or a bone. I know to go outside and haven’t had any accidents in the house since I’ve been here. Mom and I also play fetch with my favorite stuffed toy.

I had hip surgery on May 9, and I am almost 100% healed. I run around the yard, jump on the sofa (don’t tell mom!), and –my favorite–go for walks to visit the nearby sheep. After a hard day chasing squirrels and protecting the house, I love to cuddle and watch Netflix.

 

Puck

DREAM FAMILY
I’d like to be in a family that’s not too active.  I may be good with another cat, and definitely okay with one of my hockey siblings. (Zamboni is my favorite.)

Zamboni

PERSONALITY
I’m the baby of the Hockey Litter. I got my name because I run with my back legs wide like a Zamboni.  And also a little bit like a bunny. I’m super sweet but like to be chased.  If you can scoop me up, I’ll let you hold me for an hour or so. 

Hobbies: Chasing the laser pointer

I like being with animals and people.  If no one else is around, I will follow you around. (If you’re wondering, I was named after Sonny Milano – go Caps!)

Hobbies: Chasing the laser pointer
Favorite Toy: Laser pointer
Favorite Napping Spot:  On foster mama or papa or in a pile with my other hockey siblings

HOW I CAME TO THE PGSPCA

Jackie. I’m adopted!

Jackie was adopted May 2024!

Jackie is a super friendly girl that really likes attention but can also settle down quickly after the initial excitement wears down. She has free rein of the home and is non-destructive when left alone (on average about 6-7 hours a day). She lives with 3 other small dogs and gets along well with all of them. I am not sure about cats or kids but I feel like she may be ok with both. She sleeps in my bed at night along with the rest of the dogs! I have not crated her at all.

When Jackie came from the PG shelter, she was missing fur in several areas that is thought to be from allergies. We are currently managing that with Apoquel and medicated baths and it seems to be helping but this may be an ongoing expense. Her coat will require brushing and periodic grooming.

She gets the zoomies a few times a day which only last for a couple of minutes but are hilarious to watch (I would love to see her do an agility course because she is lightning fast!!). I have not seen her play with any toys unless someone throws one for her and then she doesn’t bring it back..lol. She LOVES to look out the window for hours on end and will bark to let us know if she sees anything outside. She usually gets the whole pack barking but quiets down when the “offender” has left her view.

I have not seen any food aggression from her but she will steal food from another dog if it is on the floor. Because of this, I feed her in a closed room. She doesn’t know any commands but is very food motivated so it would probably be easy to train her. She is easily corrected by just telling her no. She is pee pad trained but does potty outside every time she goes out so could probably be easily house-trained.

She walks great on leash and is non-reactive to other dogs or animals. She rides perfectly in the car so would be easy to take on adventures! She would be a great first dog because she is such a go-with-the- flow kinda girl. I think she would fit well in any home.
