Black Labrador Retriever Mix, Medium Young Male Dog Pet ID: 48532
Duke is a young male black Lab blend. About 7-10 months old, Duke has tons and tons of love and energy to give. Typical to his breed, Duke is smart and very hyper. He needs plenty of exercise and basic manners to be a perfect canine companion. Duke has a sad story to tell: his owner was moving and unable to take Duke along. Duke could live in a home with children over the age of 10 who can help keep him well-exercised and give him lots of playtime. Feline friends are not in the cards for Duke, though, but he can live with other dogs and should have owners with experience training dogs. A home with a fenced-in back yard would be ideal for him, as he could spend lots of time chasing a ball or a rope toy; alternatively, several walks every day will go far to help burn up some of his big puppy energy. He is a sweet boy who doesn’t know how he went from being in a home to being a resident at the Delco SPCA, so he hopes you and your family will stop by the Adoption Center soon to meet him. Best of all, Duke’s adoption fee is just $20.12 in the month of April, as he is one of the Delco SPCA’s “Most Wanted Rookies.” Can’t adopt Duke but still want to help? The Delco SPCA is currently accepting donations for Duke to help pay for his training in order to help him find a forever home faster.

Domestic shot hair-buff & white, Medium Adult Female Cat Pet ID: 49956
“Oh Buttercup, I need you (I need you), more than anyone, darlin’…You know that I have from the start.” Buttercup is a sweet buff & white tabby currently hanging out in the Delco SPCA’s lobby in a VIP cage with a pretty pink bandana, making occasional trips to the Business Office to stretch her legs. She has a slight neurological problem that makes her a tad off-balance, but she gets around just fine! She loves greeting the folks who stop in to the Adoption Center. In fact, it’s her favorite thing to do: be around people. She could talk and cuddle and give headbutts the whole day through. What Buttercup lacks in cat adoration, she makes up for in people love. Give her a little chat or a belly rub, and you’ve got the ticket to her heart. Buttercup can’t wait to find out who her forever person will be. Could it be you?
