Steven Martinez, the executive director for the York County SPCA said, “Even in January, so typically January is our month to catch up, catch our breath and take a rest but right now our shelter is full which is unprecedented for the month of January.”
Jerry Gilbert who was looking to adopt said, “Looking at the different dogs on the website, should we, shouldn’t we we had a dog that passed away, September was a year? And we just kind of missed the clatter of her feet and a cooking buddy at my side and said it’s about time.”
Adoptions also came with a free large bag of dog food. 39 dogs were adopted on Sunday.
