Claybert is a 19 lb. senior male cat who has become a shelter favorite in the three months we have had him. His owner surrendered him to our care so she could take care of her own health.

His ideal forever home is a place where he can get some exercise and enjoy countless belly rubs!

Week 18 – Antigone – ADOPTED

A female American Pit Bull Terrier mix with a milk chocolate-colored coat, adorable graying muzzle and spunky bat ears that goes by the name of Antigone, is this week’s Piazza Pet. According to the folks at PA SPCA, it’s hard to not stop by and say hello. She gives the best puppy-dog eyes and has great manners when meeting new people. Antigone would really like to find a new foster or adoptive home where she can snuggle up with her family and go on fun adventures. She might be a senior lady, but she is up for anything and can’t wait to shower her new family with love. Please consider giving her a chance! Grab the family and your resident dogs and stop on by to meet her today!

Puppies require a lot of love, patience and training but they are so worth it! The PA SPCA offers low-cost training classes that would be a great option for a puppy like Bo. Check out our Piazza Pet of the Week page for adoption information.
