Spice Finds a Home for the Holidays!

For two years, Spice had been in our care, recovering from extreme neglect.  This sweet and social young dog longed for a family of his very own, but couldn’t seem to find one.

This month, we launched a special campaign to help get the word out about this energetic pup. We’re happy to announce that on Christmas Eve, Spice received the greatest gift of all—a loving home. Two brothers made the trip from New Jersey to adopt Spice after a friend shared his photo on Facebook.

So many people had a hand in finding Spice a home, including the Animal Care Technicians who nurtured him to our media team who helped promote his story. But we couldn’t have done any of this without your support. Thousands of you shared Spice's photos and story on your social media channels—and it made all the difference.

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you. Please consider making a last minute, tax-deductable gift to the ASPCA. Together we can help more homeless animals find the loving homes they deserve.

Would also love to know how he is doing in his new home! Hope and pray he is treated with the love and kindness that he deserves!

I was just wondering what kind of after care the dog will receive now that he's been adopted. Will there be any kind of un-announced visits to his new home?

We perform extensive background checks on anyone looking to adopt from our shelter. They met with Spice and were able to get to know him before deciding to adopt. We don't make unannounced house visits, but we work very hard to make sure every match is successful.
