Dogs Like Hennessy Get All the Time They Need

On a cold December day last year, eight-year-old Hennessy came to us limping and suffering from multiple untreated conditions. She underwent extensive surgery on her right knee. And through it all, she never lost her trust in people.

Housetrained and a great leash walker, she learned commands like Sit, Down and Leave It with the same enthusiasm she showed greeting people. Naturally, staff members fell in love with her one by one.

But Hennessy still hasn’t found find a home of her own.

We know that some dogs take a little longer to find forever homes—but in the meantime they benefit from our top-notch veterinary care, playtime and snuggles with our devoted staff. At the ASPCA, dogs like Hennessey get all the time they need.

We’re working hard to help as many animals as possible. With your support, we can continue to save lives like Hennessy’s. We think she’s worth it. Don’t you?

This holiday, please make a small donation to help animals like Hennessy—they are counting on us.

Pet Adopting a pet is a very special step, like bringing a new member of the family into our home. Adoption of Homeless Animals.

What happened to Betty and her two puppies! Did she make it she is beautiful? I'm sure her puppies found forever homes. But did get lucky too? Please let us all know please. The ASCPA is a wonderful organization.
