We have a wonderful Happy Tails courtesy of one of our amazing volunteers, Dave!

“Lily came to the HC-SPCA in October 2022. I met her in one of her first days when she arrived and fell in love with her affability coupled with her gentle spirit. While I have my full quota of critters in our household (2 dogs and 2 cats-all rescues), a perfect family came to mind. I have worked at the Acadia Corporation where bringing dogs to work has been a long-standing tradition I started in the late 70’s (yes, I’ve been there a long time!).  Our operations manager, Matt, had been working with us for several years when they got a new goldendoodle puppy, “Shilo”.  In early October ’22, Shilo got out of the and was fatally struck by a car. The entire family, Matt, his wife Bekah and their three young children were devastated. 

After meeting “Lily”, I sent the family a video of Lily and implored them to contact the SPCA asap to express an interest in Lily.  In early November ’22 Lily went home to her furever family and has been a fixture in their home since then. For me, it was not only rewarding to see a wonderful dog find a new home but even better, I get to see Lily at work several times a week. She is a wonderful dog who has fit into both her new families both at home and at work. Every now and then when no one is looking, Lily  gives me a wink, letting me know that she remembers our first meeting at the SPCA and thanking me for the wonderful family I helped connect her with..

I have attached Bekah’s e-mail and photos commemorating Lily’s one-year anniversary of going to her furever home.

This is what makes volunteering at the SPCA so worthwhile to me!

Happy Tails, 





The beautiful cat you see in the “after” photos lives the same life as a typical cat and is THRIVING from the love and care given by his family. We are so thankful that his family saw him for his beautiful spirit and the dedication they’ve given to nurse him to the beautiful, healthy cat he is today.
