Supporting Change for Companion Animals

I’ve changed a lot since I first brought Agatha and Christie home from the Philadelphia SPCA in 1991. Yes, I’m fatter and older. But not just that.

A Tale of Two Shelters – Help Support the Future

I love dogs. But sometimes they frighten me. And I felt a shiver of fear as I walked down the narrow corridor with dogs barking and lunging on each side. Pet adoption shouldn’t be scary Let’s just say it wasn’t the happiest way to look for a dog to adopt. And the dogs were so […]
