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.

If you bring the time, patience, and dog experience, Azalea will bring the energy and enthusiasm. She is full of energy and love to play tug, fetch, and run around in the yard. She is still very much a puppy at heart. Azalea knows all kinds of tricks and basic obedience skills, but she only knows the hand signals since she’s deaf. Don’t let that worry you, she’s always been deaf and has adjusted well. You just have to get used to talking to her with your hands. She knows sit, down, stay, roll over, sit pretty, touch, and a lot of other neat tricks she would be happy to show you in person. She’s crate-trained and is even learning dog agility! She loves cuddles and being petted but prefers you scratch her back until she gets to know you.

As of June 4, 2018, Azalea has been with the SPCA for 421 days.

Coco loves attention. She not only wants to know what you’re doing, she also wants to be involved. She’s looking for a family that will keep her busy. Don’t worry, you won’t have to guess; Coco will let you know when she wants attention. Click here to watch her do her best to get someone to notice her. If you have a safe indoor/outdoor situation for this adventurous kitty, she would appreciate a safe way to get that extra enrichment. Coco eats a special diet to keep her urinary tract healthy.

As of June 4, 2018, Coco has been with the SPCA for 330 days.

Paul is the perfect sidekick because he knows when to let his superhero do his/her own thing. He’s content to go off and take a nap, but if you need him, he’s probably nearby waiting for your call. Paul loves attention, so he hopes his sidekick will ask for his advice often. He is FIV+, but can still live a long, healthy life.

As of June 4, 2018, Paul has been with the SPCA for 393 days.
