Adoption Spotlight



Trisket is an astonishing 8-month-old female, who is a ball of energy and love. She would do great in a home that can keep up with her and continue working on her puppy manners. She can be adopted for a fee you name until Thursday. Also, if not adopted, Trisket will be available at the Mega Adoption Event on December 7th and 8th at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks for a $35 adoption fee, along with 1000 of other homeless pets.
