    Flower the bulldog wants you to know that October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month – the perfect time to add a new four-legged family member to your home! 

    Flower was adopted from the Bucks County SPCA (BCSPCA) earlier this year. She was found abandoned on the side of a road in rough shape. 

    Thankfully, she was brought to our shelter in Lahaska where she got the medical treatment and care she needed to make a full recovery. Now Flower is safe and happy in a loving home of her own.

    Find Your Match

    The Bucks County SPCA helps hundreds of homeless dogs like Flower each year. Our shelters in Lahaska and Quakertown are great places to find dogs of every age, activity level, breed, and personality. 

    Shelter staff can help you find the right dog to fit your lifestyle. We’ll talk with you about your household and activity level, and provide insight about the medical history and behavior of the dogs you’re considering.  

    A Doggone Good Deal

    All dogs at the BCSPCA are neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped prior to adoption. They get regular veterinary care during their shelter stay, and staff and volunteers engage the dogs in training and enrichment activities to help keep them happy and healthy. All the dogs and other animals currently up for adoption can be viewed online at or you can call either shelter to learn more and schedule a visit. (Act fast! Dogs are adopted quickly, so check the website often.)

    You Get More than you Give

    Adopting from a shelter not only saves the life of a dog, it greatly improves your own! 

    Pets make our lives richer and happier. They give us a reason to get up and go on the hard days. 

    Their constant companionship is a source of joy in an ever-changing world.

    But pets bring challenges too. Whether you have a new dog in your home or a current pet who is acting differently, it can be overwhelming dealing with challenging behaviors if you don’t know what to do.

    We helped Flower’s new owner by providing tips for how to manage some of the dog’s unwanted mouthy behaviors. Flower continues to improve and they are doing well together!

    * Just kidding! But we do sometimes have pets named Pumpkin or Spice.
