Every now and then, we come across a special dog in our Adoption Center who just can’t seem to find a home. That’s the case with Spice, a super sweet and social pup who has been waiting a long while to meet his perfect adopter. This holiday season, we’re asking you to help us find a home for Spice!

Spice came to the ASPCA in 2011 after living in squalid conditions in a basement without access to food or water. He was severely underweight, weighing only 32 pounds when he came to the ASPCA Animal Hospital. After being nursed back to health by ASPCA veterinarians and staff, he now weighs 54 pounds!

This sweet dog could not be friendlier. He would thrive in a home with an energetic adopter who’ll take the time to play with him. He already knows Sit, and loves to learn new tricks. Whether you’re looking to add a new furry friend to your household or know a friend who might be willing to give Spice a chance, we’d love to have your help in spreading the word. Please share this flyer on your Facebook, Twitter, blog and other social networks. Together we can find Spice a home for the holidays!

If you live in a teens-and-up household and are interested in adopting this special dog, please call our Adoption Center in New York City at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4120, or come meet Spice in person.

My Prayer is that each dog and cat will have a home in the new year


If my kids weren't 10 and 7, and if it didn't say "teen and up household".... :( we'd take him in a heartbeat. Good luck Spice!!


I like animals but for ASPCA to play a holly Christian song "Silent Night" is not acceptable. I am A Christian and I am very offended by their ads with religious music. Jesus died for us and near his birth at Christmas ASPCA plays "Silent Night" for animals? it is offensive & not acceptable. How far would they go for their pockets. It appears this is a very rich organization, paying millions of dollars for advertising..why dont they spend that money on animals?


"Silent Night" is an 18th century German Christmas song that is sung all over the world during the holiday season. I respect your feelings, but I don't understand why you would be offended. The holiest of saints, St. Francis of Assisi, wrote his most famous prayers for animals. St. Theresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross prayed for the animals. Jesus of Nazareth was born in a manger surrounded by and protected by and kept warm by animals. There is, in my humble opinion, no offense in playing "Silent Night" for the animals. It is part and parcel of Christian love, mercy and compassion.


Good for you Emma...there were animals in the manger where Jesus was born...Wishing you a Merry Christmas!


A beautifully written reply to someone who needed to be reminded of the meaning of this holiday season. I so appreciated the explanation done in such a kind and professional manner.


Please stop with the negativity already. The ASPCA does amazing things for animals...we should all be positive and help them to help animals. God loves all beings. Thank you...


Local shelters and rescues are the ones doing amazing things for the animals, so please donate to them instead of the ASPCA who gives less than a penny for every dollar donated to the animals!


Local shelters murder animals!! I may only be ten, but even I am not that thick!!! (safe haven does not though). I think aspca is doing wonderful things!! And their ads are so people like us can find out about it!!!!!!
