Dutch and Septia of Hillside

Dutch and Septia of Hillside

Dutch and Septia are the nicest couple that should be spending their golden years in a great home, but as their lives were turned upside down in January, 2020, the pair of seniors are happy to still have each other, even if they're missing the good home that they shared all their lives.  Dutch, a yellow husky/shepherd (15), and his girlfriend, Septia, a brown lab (12), came to us when their owner became ill and had to go into assisted living.

It's obvious that they were loved, since they're incredibly sweet, happy, friendly dogs.  Dutch had some medical needs that needed tending to when he arrived, and Septia has some age-related arthritis, but these two have lots of spunk and energy for their age!  They're so well-behaved and have great manners, and they absolutely adore people of all ages.  They're full of personality and nothing gets them down.  While they're waiting for that special someone to come along and offer them a great home, they've been added to our Share-A-Pet program to get some extra attention from some good sponsors, like you!

We established the Share-A-Pet Program in February 1978 to save the lives of a number of dogs and cats who, for various reasons, were in special need of a “New Leash on Life.” The animals are selected by the Society staff from among those at our Animal Care Centers which the Society considers unadoptable due to age, handicap, medical problems, abuse, length of stay, etc. All Share-A-Pet sponsors through our web site will receive via e-mail the Society’s publication, the HUMANE NEWS, plus every four months, a color photo of each dog or cat they are sponsoring and a letter telling about the health and activities of the animal. All sponsors will also receive a Share-A-Pet membership card, which entitles you to free admission to Popcorn Park Zoo for the duration of your sponsorship. Please note: Should funds for one animal exceed the cost of its care, they are applied to all cats and dogs in need on the Share-A-Pet Program.

The following services are available at the Forked River Shelter: - Adoption and surrender of cats, dogs and small animals seven days a week. - Radio-dispatched ambulances on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. - Popcorn Park Animal Clinic, a modern Medical Dept, staffed by licensed veterinarians to treat and care for privately owned animals and shelter animals. - Spay/Neuter services. - Animal Haven Farm and Kitty City - the homes of our Share-A-Pet dogs and cats. - Home of Popcorn Park, a 7 acre refuge providing a permanent home for injured, ill, handicapped, abandoned, abused and exploited wildlife, birds, exotic and farm animals. - Humane Education programs and tours.
