Help us fill an animal’s food bowl and spread some holiday cheer this season! From December 9th to January 9th, every time we get a like on Facebook we will donate a scoop of food in partnership with Hill’s Pet Nutrition to the Hillside SPCA – an animal shelter in our area. Please help us by spreading the word! When we post on any of our social media accounts, please share, retweet, or create something on your own. We’re aiming to get 1,000 likes (that equals about 10 40-lb bags of dog food!) and we can’t do it without you! So please let all your friends, family, coworkers, and anyone else know so we can make this holiday season just a little bit better for these animals in need.

Hillside SPCA: Mark your calendars for the entire month of January, 2013!!

Hillside SPCA: Mark your calendars for the entire month of January, 2013!! It’s the CAT AND KITTEN ADOPT-A-THON (no adoption FEE!) Please, please, they need your help! They are experiencing one of the worst years ever for incoming cats and kittens. They’ve been on overload all of 2012, and are really desperate for more adoptions. Please pass the word to everyone you know about this huge January event. Their cats and kittens are so beautiful, so lovable and oh, so needy! If they could talk they would absolutely beg you to take them home! Their usual adoption process will apply, but there will be NO ADOPTION FEE to qualified applicants. Adopters must sign and agree to their standard adoption contract. It can’t get any better than that! Hillside SPCA is open every day of the week, with feline adoption hours from 11:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. FOR ANY QUESTIONS, MORE INFORMATION, OR ANY INQUIRIES CONCERNING THIS EVENT, CONTACT THE FELINE MANAGER DIRECTLY at 570-622-7769, visit the shelter or go to www.hillsidespca.org
