SPCA's "Angel Pet" Programs Aims to Help Older, Sick Animals Get Adopted
It's no surprise that older dogs and cats with health issues have a harder time getting adopted. The Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA's new "Angel Pet" program is helping older pets with medical issues get adopted faster.
You can adopt one of the "Angel Pets" free and the SPCA will cover their ongoing medical costs.
Six animals are currently available in the program. One of them is a diabetic cat named Samson.
"We want to make it as easy as possible for Samson to find a home. We're going to provide the insulin that Samson needs and the regular check-ups and the blood panels and stuff like that," said Lisa Lane of the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA
The SPCA also hopes to find a home for a friendly dog named Hershey. He was bald when taken in by the SPCA, eaten up by fleas and ticks but now, Hershey is healed - furry again - and ready for his forever home.
