Happy Tails | Fosters Needed | Big Day of Giving | Trails for Tails | Adoptables
A Beautiful Pupdate
This happy tail is what SSPA's work is all about!
Mia was dumped at the shelter, tied to a post.
The underweight girl went to foster, but her first foster returned her, feeling Mia's medical needs were beyond their abilities.
Then, she ended up being fostered by Liz Cardenas.
"She was sent back cause she was meant for us!" Liz says.
Mia was only 34 pounds, had bald spots and intestinal issues when Liz started fostering her.
And soon, Liz realized Mia wasn't going anywhere and she'd found her forever home.
"She’s healthy, no bald patches and weighs 64 pounds now!" Liz says.
She's made Liz's life so much brighter.
"Mia definitely brought so much love to our little family it’s unreal," Liz says. "Knowing she’s been through a ton and having her adjust was an emotional journey but all so worth it! It’s crazy how much love she has to give. I’d do it all over again!"
This story again shows that fostering saves lives, along with what SSPA wishes for all of our dogs!
Thank you, Liz, for making her such a beloved part of your family!

Puppy Waffles found his forever home Saturday!
His adopter Quin and her two adult children came to his foster's house, and - unsurprisingly - it was love at first sight!
Quin's daughter said after a few minutes of playing with him, "I love him."
Waffles will have two dog siblings as well!
Congratulations Waffles! Can't wait to hear about your adventures!

SSPA's dogs need your support! Will you show up for them?
SSPA needs to close a sizable funding gap to fill to maintain our life-saving programs for shelter dogs (behavioral, playgroups, Dog Day Out, fostering, adoption counseling and matching), so we truly need everyone’s support to keep us going through the summer - and beyond!
The dogs depend on us; we depend on you!

This little one is finally safe in foster after living on the streets for a while.
She's very sweet and is OK with other dogs.
She's looking for a special adopter who will continue to help her build confidence and work on her fear issues. Her person will need to be patient as she takes some time to acclimate to new people and handling.
A quiet home without young children would be best for her.
