October is a wonderful time to consider adopting. The weather is still mild and it will be easy to help a new canine companion adjust to the home and family. Then when the cold weather sets in, there will be a warm, fuzzy friend to snuggle up with.
Adopting a pet will provide an adopter with: unconditional love, tail wagging greetings, a hiking or walking companion, and a confidant who will never spill secrets. Studies have found that owning a pet helps lower blood pressure, improve depression, helps reduce the need for pain medications, helps improve activity, and helps pet owners live healthier.
All dogs adopted from the SPCA receive flea treatment, vaccines for kennel cough and distemper, a microchip, and a free 30-day pet health insurance policy from with a valid e-mail address. Adoptable dogs may be viewed on the SPCA’s home page at www.lycomingspca.org. Once you see their beautiful pictures you will fall in love and want to open your heart and home to one of our homeless animals.
