Living the Good Life

I recently received an email from “Cookie’s Papa,” the proud owner of a Pennsylvania SPCA (PSPCA) alum! Cookie is a 4-year-old Rottweiler/Shepherd mix whose previous owner fell on hard times and lost her house, so she surrendered Cookie to our shelter.

“Cookie’s Papa” wrote:

“We adopted Cookie in December 2008. I met her at a mobile adoption that I was working at as a volunteer and I went to the PSPCA the next day and adopted her. I knew Cookie was special because everyone at the shelter was so sad to see her go.

Cookie had a rough first week or two trying to figure out where her "tootsie rolls" go, but she learned quickly. She now knows how to sit and give paw. Cookie is our baby and she never leaves my side. The neighborhood knows her by name because she greets everyone with a wet kiss.

She goes to the spa once a week for massage and doggy time. Cookie is the love our life and I can't imagine life without her.”

Everyone at the PSPCA is happy that Cookie is living the good life, complete with weekly spa trips! Every dog deserves to be pampered.

Cookie’s pals back at the shelter could use some pampering, too. Many of the animals that come to us have never had a bath until they enter the shelter. After they're rescued from cruelty and neglect, our grooming tub is their first stop! Once they're sudsed up, we see a whole new animal: healthier, fluffier, and much, much happier.

April showers mean especially muddy paws, so this month we’re collecting grooming supplies for our shelter animals. You’re invited to donate shampoos and conditioners, grooming clippers, and special treatments (medicated shampoos for flea, tick, mange, and skin irritations) to the Pennsylvania SPCA. Clean, gently used towels are always welcome, too!

To help our furry friends look and feel their best, visit our website:

Our animals need all the help they can get finding new homes. Your grooming donations will help them put their best paw forward!

PS: Cookie, we love your new set of ears!
