My visit to the SPCA

Last week, I was sick, so I didn’t get to volunteer at the SPCA like I usually do. However, this week, I was able to go, so I have more doggies to share with you that as far as I know are still up for adoption!

Since I was getting back into the swing of things, I decided to work with Rowdy, my previous foster. He’s still there and adjusting back to shelter life. It was wonderful to see him! The staff said that he seems more friendlier than before his foster time, so I’m hoping that the work I continue doing with him during my volunteer time at the shelter just brings him that much closer to a forever home!

Charlie was another dog I worked with this week. Charlie is a 6 month old lab mix who is full of energy! He is super fun and loveable. He can sit on command and is super sweet. If you are walking next to him and you stop, he will stop, sit and look up at you. He also has a howl that will just make your heart melt. I know he will find a home pretty quickly, so I thought I would just share his sweet face now!

Gabe is the funniest looking dog I’ve ever seen. He looks like a humungous Dachshund, with big floppy ears. He’s actually a one and a half year old part Dachshund and part Catahoula hound, which is what gives him his strange, yet loveable, appearance. He cuddled up next to me when we sat on the grass in the garden at the shelter and just looked up at me.

Stormy was the sweetheart that day. She is a two year old border collie. I just love her speckled face. She was a little lower energy than the other dogs I worked with that day, which was a welcomed change. We walked out into the garden, and she just leaned into me. When I sat on the ground, she inched over to me and rolled on her back for belly scratches.

I am so lucky to be able to work with these dogs. The SPCA really is a special place. I’m not the only one who gushes over these pups. The staff there is incredible. We had one dog adopted while I was there that day, and the whole place was buzzing with excited celebration. It’s pretty awesome to volunteer there. And I know I’ve said it before, but if you have an opportunity to volunteer, I highly recommend this place.

(I am not a representative of the SPCA, other then being a volunteer there. They didn’t ask me to write about the dogs. In fact, they don’t know that I gush this much about my time there. I just want to share all the cute doggy pictures with you!)

Have you ever worked in a shelter?  Do you have cute dog pictures to share with me?
