Adoption Spotlight

 

 ASTER

Aster is like a blooming flower. She’s a little shy at first then blossoms when a little love is extended. She’s a moderate energy dog who loves to cuddle and go for walks. She’d do best with a dog of her same energy level, and she should do well in a home with kids. Aster’s adoption fee is “pay what you want” through Sunday, November 19. (Brandywine Valley SPCA, 600 South Street, New Castle, DE 302-516-1000, www.bvspca.org)
