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.

Does Spice get along with other dogs? Indoor cats? Could transport be arranged to IL?


I adopted a 2 year old cat from PAWS. I walked out with empty arms. Went back the next day and saw a cage on the floor with boxes on top. I walked past him several times. There I found sweet Oliver and took him home. Point being to make this dog stand out. A kerchief, photo's, letters from the dog with his picture and maybe his paw print.

I hope he finds a great home. I have to beautiful dog and a loving cat. I have save other animals and found homes for them. Hope someone out there has a place he can call home.


Spice, I hope you find a great home soon. I would adopt you in a heartbeat if my stupid apartment in AZ would permit big boys like you. Maybe I need to save my pennies and get back to the East coast, eh? You deserve to be spoiled with love and care, you cutie pie!!! *belly rubs*


You are a darling Spice! I can't believe you are not getting adopted. You deserve a home for Christmas. I would adopt you if I could but my mom is allergic. Just remember that I am thinking about you and you have a special place in my heart!
