Sensational Sidekicks

Behind every good superhero is a trusty sidekick. Sidekicks are always in the right place at the right time to help the hero save the day, but they never get credit for it. At the SPCA, we feel they’re a little underestimated. You are the hero of your own story, and we’d like to suggest adding a furry sidekick to your life.

What is a sensational sidekick?

SPCA sidekicks are pets who have been overlooked for more than 30 days. While these pets probably won’t help you catch the bad guy or save the world, they’ll be there to help you win the battles in your daily life. They’ll listen to your stories about the evil villain that is your boss. You’ll always feel like you made a grand entrance when they come running to greet you. They’ll recognize your superpower in summoning the red laser dot or being the keeper of the tennis balls. Here are a few Sensational SPCA Sidekicks that aren’t getting any credit for their skills.

Meet the sidekicks

If Bojangles had to choose one item to take with him and be stranded on an island, he would choose a tennis ball.

As far as he’s concerned, fetch is better than taking a walk. He would like to be the only pet so no one tries to steal his tennis balls. To watch him in action, click here!
