They are both friendly Brendan would love to get his dogs back when he gets on his feet but also knows that might not be possible but he can't imagine his life without them. This is a heartbreaking situation. He did not neuter the male the female is spayed.

Senior Dogs Who Need Homes or Foster homes at Philadelphia SPCA

These senior dogs could sure use a break!  Can't Adopt? then how about fostering an older laid back dog?
here are some of the current senior dogs that would LOVE to be with you for the holidays and maybe even longer.  Contact: if you can help!

Sha Sha - URGENT

Sha Sha (14328825) is a schnauzer type mix that was surrendered to the shelter because now that she's 12 years old, her owners no longer have time for her. Poor Sha Sha is clearly missing her family! She had lived with children and other dogs, so she's quite lonely here in a kennel all by herself. According to her former owner, Sha Sha is crate trained and loves to go for walks. She's energetic for a old girl, but also likes to just lay by your feet. She has some minor hair loss due to fleas and her fur is a bit matted. This poor senior girl deserves to be loved again! Seniors decline quickly at the shelter and deserve a chance to live out their golden years- Sha Sha needs rescue ASAP!

Charlie - URGENT
Poor Charlie (14490004) was found emaciated and filthy in an abandon house. It's pretty clear that he hasn't been cared for in quite a while, but Charlie has a ton of love to give. He's a big brindle Cane Corso, around 7-10 years old.

Poor King (14492542), a male 13 year old German Shepherd- Chow mix, was abandoned by his owner when they moved out, and sadly for King, he had to come here. King is not thrilled with being here, and is too scared to solicit attention or open up to anyone--can you blame him? After 13 years in one home, he suddenly found himself in one of the loudest and most stressful environments a dog, of any age, could be in! King would certainly be happy to have a grooming--he has mats all around his neck and up behind his ears. Please don't leave this old man here...King deserves his home again!

MONET (A14436742) here! Just wanted to introduce myself and tell you that I'm staying at ACCT for a little bit till I find my family. So, about me, I'm an adult (about seven years old) Terrier/Pit Bull Mix that my owners could no longer afford to keep. I'm pretty good with other dogs, in fact, I came in with another dog. If you already have a dog, ask my friends at ACCT about bringing him/her in to meet me! I'm not very interested in cats, so maybe I could live with them too! Really I'm just a friendly gal who needs a fresh start! I know I'm a little big for a lap dog, but sometimes I can't help myself, I just
LOVE to cuddle!

URGENT: Bubba is a senior shepherd mix who came to the shelter in the beginning of October 2011.

When Bubba's owner died, his neighbor took him in but was unable to care for him.
Bubba is most likely house broken and seems to like other dogs. He seeks affection from people and wants to nuzzle his head into your lap.
Unfortunately, Bubba has not had an easy life and wasn't cared for very well.
He has horrible teeth and has difficulty eating hard food. He is blind in one eye, from a cataract.
He has open sores on his back, legs, and neck.
They are irritated and because of this, he scratches, which has made them even worse.
Bubba is currently on medication for the infections.
Additionally, one of Bubba's hind legs is not functioning correctly and he either doesn't use it,
or it bends at the knee and is flat on the ground.
Bubba is desperate to get out of the shelter into a home where he can be comfortable in his golden years.

BATMAN! This older gentleman is just a happy-go-lucky shepherd.

While he is obviously overweight, he loves to prance around and chase balls.
Batman is good with other dogs and can be tested with cats.
Batman is likely housebroken, comes when called, and is great with all kinds of body handling.
Batman would make the perfect companion for someone who is looking for a dog to lounge around with
or even a family looking to add another member. Batman is already neutered and can go home today!

Foster or Adopt Special Needs kitty age 7 named OREO really cute black white cat

OREO Needs Home or Rescue ASAP
CONTACT: Dina, at

Oreo (7-yr. old neutered male) was brought to the vet by his family a few months ago because he seemed sick and wasn't himself...he was diagnosed as diabetic, and the family was told what needed to be done: a brief hospitalization to regulate the blood, and that he would be insulin dependent afterward. The biggest expense is the few days in the hospital, but after the initial care, it isn't expensive to keep a diabetic cat on insulin in the long term. They took him home and did not vet him.

Today, they brought him back, much thinner, sicker, and declined treatment for him (picture was taken today, 12/19/2011). They opted to euthanize him, instead. Our vet and the caring staff felt that this kitty is treatable and that he can live a healthy life with an owner who is willing to give him insulin--they do NOT want to euthanize him. They had the family sign him over into their care, and they will hospitalize him and get his blood sugar back in line. They are hoping a rescue or family is out there to take him--QUICKLY.
Insulin is not expensive, and the vet staff can help teach any new family or rescue how to give insulin--it is VERY SIMPLE! You would be given instruction on feeding and diet. It is also a GREAT PLUS that this cat is not overweight, as many diabetic cats are!
There will be NO CHARGE for the medical care, courtesy of our caring Vet, they just want to see him saved and go to someone who will love him!
Time is of the essence, as he cannot stay at the hospital for long!

BLU a 10 year old male labrador retriever needs urgent foster or forever home no other dogs - Cornwall NY

contact:  Sarah at

Hi Sarah with OCC All Retriever Rescue in Cornwall NY. We took in an owner surrender last Sunday Blu a soon to be 10 year old black male lab. Owner had cancer and can no longer care for him. He is confused but settles and is a GREAT dog. We had blood work done and everything came back great, except he does have Lyme which we are treating him for.
Blu is 139 lbs and is great with people but seems to be bipolar when it comes to other dogs. He does great with most but than when he is done he is done and snapped at the fosters dogs. We were told he was good with other dogs when we took him in. Owner is in the hospital .We do not have any foster home without dogs so I have no where for him to go. We were going to pay to kennel him but he has never been crated and he freaked out trying to chew the kennel's wire, barking non stop.
We are trying to find a foster or forever home for him with no other pets, if you know anyone who might be able to help us we would beyond appreciate your help.

Adopt Camby, an 8 year 48 lb golden retriever mix in Port Chester NY

Hi meet Camby. He is a Golden Retreiver mix, approximately 8 yrs. young,and 48lbs. He gets along with dogs, cats (he actually has no interest in cats) and children and just loves life. He is a great companion. Our boy Camby has come a long way and has been disappointed by his human owners in his prior life. Camby was dropped off at a high kill shelter along with his buddy who is a purebreed Havanese. The dumped these dogs off and just drove away laughing. Camby and his canine friend were separated in the kennel and all he did was cry for his friend who left the shelter the second day he was there because he was a purebreed and Camby was left behind because he is not. Saving Paws Rescue came to Camby's rescue and took him out of the shelter and placed him in a home with children, dogs and a loving caring family. This is a temporary home for Camby, he is ready and well adjusted to live his life with a loving family.  Please contact: for adoption information.

From Max's owner -  I have an 11 year old lab that desperately needs a new home. I'm moving and cannot take him with me and my parents will not take care of him when I leave.

If you can foster or adopt Max, please email as soon as possible for an application.  thanks!

UPDATE ADOPTED!!!! Coco, a 14 year old chocolate labrador

Meet Coco, a 14 year old PB chocolate labrador retriever. Coco is Good w/ other dogs and good with children. Not tested with cats.
Housebroken: Unknown
Has a little trouble standing up but once he is up, he is good to go for a walk.

For those of us who have pets and love our animals, it's hard to think of ANYTHING we wouldn't do for them if they needed it. Unfortunately, there are some people who don't feel that way, and one of those was Coco's owner. Coco was originally picked up as a stray and was taken in at a nearby animal shelter. His owner came to see if he was there and found him, but when they heard that he was required to get a 10.00 rabies vaccine before leaving, their response was "He's not worth it. Just keep him". Coco is 14 YEARS OLD and belonged to the same owner his entire life.
COCO is located in Kentucky and transport is available to the northeast.
Bowling Green-Warren County Humane Society, Bowling Green, KY
Would you like to foster Coco so that he can leave the shelter and live out the rest of his life in comfort?
Please email for a foster application.
