Every now and then, we come across a special dog in our Adoption Center who just can’t seem to find a home. That’s the case with Spice, a super sweet and social pup who has been waiting a long while to meet his perfect adopter. This holiday season, we’re asking you to help us find a home for Spice!

Spice came to the ASPCA in 2011 after living in squalid conditions in a basement without access to food or water. He was severely underweight, weighing only 32 pounds when he came to the ASPCA Animal Hospital. After being nursed back to health by ASPCA veterinarians and staff, he now weighs 54 pounds!

This sweet dog could not be friendlier. He would thrive in a home with an energetic adopter who’ll take the time to play with him. He already knows Sit, and loves to learn new tricks. Whether you’re looking to add a new furry friend to your household or know a friend who might be willing to give Spice a chance, we’d love to have your help in spreading the word. Please share this flyer on your Facebook, Twitter, blog and other social networks. Together we can find Spice a home for the holidays!

If you live in a teens-and-up household and are interested in adopting this special dog, please call our Adoption Center in New York City at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4120, or come meet Spice in person.

I am a Christian as well. I was raised a Christian and my father is a retired minister. Neither he nor I are offended by this.
Let's get back to the subject at hand...finding a home for Spice and all the other animals that are abused and neglected at man's hand!
Thank You ASPCA for your work - and thank you for finding Spice a home!

God made all. That means animals to. What's wrong with you...God loves everybody and what your saying is its wrong to play beautiful music for beautiful animals. I well not only pray for the animals tonight, I say one for you to. God bless us all, even the little animals. Are you forgetting where gods son was born.

ED are you serious. This statement you made is more unacceptable especially coming from a Christian. It seems the most offensive people claim to be Christians and hide behind God. These creatures were made by God and I do not think he himself would find this offensive. The silver and gold will remain but the sticks and straw will be burned in the fire. If you are such a Christian find that passage in the bible. Giving unselfishly is gold and silver as far as I a concerned. I suggest you spend more time in church and learn what it really means to be a Christian. I am sure God would prefer you spend more time telling people about him than basing an organization for using the song silent night. I also see you do not understand business either. Why do all companies advertise? To sell products or get people to support their cause. I am a Christian my self and I will continue to keep ASPCA in my prayers and all of the people that help this good cause.


This is the most ludicrous comment I have ever read. Animals, and especially dogs like Spice, embody loyalty, love and devotion. They are instinctively that which we as humans can only aspire to. For you to chastise the ASPCA for calling to mind images and sentiments of warmth, safety, family and care in the hopes of finding just one dog, cat or hamster a forever home is selfish, disgusting and most certainly not christian.

Kevin are an idiot..I find it offensive that you begin your statement with "holly" Is it a holly jolly Christian, or is it "holy". Was our Lord Jesus Christ born amongst the oxen, sheep and asses in squalor? Pretty sure he wants us to look out for whatever his creation is that cannot look out for Army Infantry Veteran


Ed you have to be joking! God created all creatures, great and small... Brush up on your bible and remember that being a Christian is about not judging others, treating all of Gods creatures with compassion, and loving one another. Go be an idiot somewhere else please....


are you serious??? why would that cause you to think your religion is anti animal? does not the scripture tell us that god granted us domain over all the animals? get over your puckered up self.....




"The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made. All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord, and all your saints shall bless you! "
Psalm 145:9-10

God loves His animals too. Silent Night is NOT religious. It's about a dear Saviors birth. He wants us to love and take care of the animals He put on this earth. Get off your High Horse .
