What a beautiful sight.
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania SPCA Empties Shelter For 1st Time In 47 Years

In heartwarming news, the Adams County SPCA of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania successfully adopted out all their dogs and reunited all lost dogs with their owners for the first time in 47 years, leaving a completely empty kennel. That is fantastic news, and I would have adopted one of those dogs myself if my house wasn’t already full of hellhounds (actually precious angels).

Today is a great day for the Adams County SPCA! Two weeks ago our kennels were almost filled, now we don’t have any dogs in the building at all (we have 1 cat that came in as a stray a little bit ago)!! Our community stepped up once again! This is the first time in 47 YEARS that the Adams County SPCA is empty let alone at Christmas time, it is a true miracle!

To say that we are beyond excited is an understatement! The staff and volunteers have worked VERY hard to take care of the animals in our care and to make sure they got adopted to the right home! This year we have adopted out 598 animals and reunited 125 strays with their owners!

We will be pulling animals from other shelters in PA next week in hopes of relieving some of their stress. Right now, we are going to enjoy this accomplishment!

I’ve never had anything but adopted dogs, and every single one has been absolutely perfect in their own way. Granted, they’ve been far from perfect in a lot of other ways, but I wouldn’t change a single one of them for the world. *Walter farts, growls at own butt* Life is good.

Thanks to JustA, who agrees adopted dogs come with extra love.
