Your donations at work: Skittles and Sydney

There are many well-known mother and daughter pairs - Sophia and Dorothy, Lorelai and Rory, Skittles and Sydney. Wait, you say you’ve never heard of that last pair? Well Skittles and Sydney are the SPCA’s happiest, fluffiest duo. We thought you should hear a little about them so you know just what your support means to the pets of Wake County.

Sydney and Skittles came to us in late December of last year. They were adopted after about two weeks and lived with their family for 10 months. The family fell on hard times and could no longer care for them so Skittles and Sydney came back to the SPCA.

Both dogs had hair loss and Skittles was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection and hypothyroidism. The holidays are an important time of year for the SPCA. The girls are still waiting for a forever home but because of donor support, Skittles and Sydney will get the care they need while they wait for a family to adopt them. Donations ensure that the pets who don’t find a home for the holidays will still have warm bedding, full tummies, and lots of love.

We make donating as easy as possible. You can use your credit card to make a donation online or by phone. You can mail your donation or better yet, stop by and see us in person! Don’t worry; we know you’ll actually be here to see the pets. We understand.

You’ve heard the saying “it’s the thought that counts.” Well, that is absolutely the case here. It doesn’t matter if you can’t give a lot. Give what you can. Skittles and Sydney and the homeless pets of the Triangle thank you.
