  1. Adoptable Dogs: Bella

    My name is Bella. I am an approximately 4 year-old female pit bull mix. I am good with dogs and love children. I am a pretty laid back lady, but have my energetic moments when I play with my foster siblings. I do love to go for walks and make a great running partner. I have been at Speranza since the summer of 2016 and would love to find a family of my own soon!

    I used to live in a car with my puppies and my human. Sadly my human overdosed on drugs while in the car with us. She survived, but I was brought to Speranza with my puppies. I was a great mom and we were fortunate enough to be fostered with Dr. Pryor and his family. My puppies were all adopted and now I am waiting for my family to come while living in a new foster home.

  2. Winter is Around the Corner.

    For those allowing Santa to bring a new pet down the chimney this Christmas, or for those that have plenty of experience under the belt, it’s time for a refresher on winter hazards. There are many areas of safety concern during the winter for your pets. Some of these things are obvious like the cold temperatures, while others are less obvious like Ice Melt products. We will outline danger areas by topic:
    Winter or Indoor Plants:

    • Holly Berries: moderate gastrointestinal upset if ingested such as drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, and mental/neurologic depression (lethargy, dullness).
    • Poinsettia: mouth irritation and gastrointestinal upset if ingested; usually mild and self-limiting in small quantities.
    • Pine Needles: could be irritating to the stomach and fallen needles should be swept up often
    • Mistletoe: SEVERELY irritating, often leading to bloody vomiting and bloody diarrhea; 1-2 berries can be fatal!
    • Lilies (Tiger, Asian, Japanese Show, Easter, Stargazer, and Casa Blanca): can cause acute kidney failure in CATS. (Download PDF)
  3. Pet of the Month: Clyde

    Hi everyone! My name is Clyde and I was born in June 2015.  I am half of the dynamic duo that my mom decided to give a home to after my sister, Bonnie, and I were dumped at a farm. When I was about a month old, an animal attacked me and I would not have survived if I had not been taken off the streets. I told mom to save my sister, too…how could she say “no”?!?

    My most favorite thing to do ever is snuggle with my mom. Granted, there are other humans that live with us, but she is my favorite. She’s always petting me, playing with me, and taking naps with me. She even lets me sit on her lap while she puts on her face in the morning! Other fun things I love to do are chase strings, figure out ways to eat the goldfish, play with all my noisy toys late at night, use as many things as I can to sharpen my claws on besides my scratching post, chew the bath mat so it has to be replaced every month, take the screen off the window and venture onto the roof of the house when possible, and meow extremely loudly the entire length of time my humans eat dinner (even though I was already fed). My other siblings Bonnie, Jezzie, Fishy, JJ, Whiskers, Tickles, Damon, Bubbles, and Ghost Rider all live with me, too. We make up quite the “little” family ?

    Even though I am happy and full of life, I am not always healthy. I have had many ongoing health issues in my short lifetime so my mom wanted me to have the best vet care around. I met Dr. Amber over a year ago and she is amazing. She truly cares about me and has made it a priority to get me well. Granted, I don’t like traveling to see her, but I always know I am in the most capable hands when I am there. Dr. Amber and the staff at Dillsburg Vet Center are wonderful…they even have treats for me when I come visit ? But thanks to Dr. Amber, I am slowly getting better and will have a long life of snuggles!
