There’s always Hope

‘Hope’ is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul 
And sings the tune without the words 
And never stops — at all…”
— Emily Dickinson

Hope is also a 3-year-old Chihuahua, Dachshund and Jack Russell Terrier mix (or so the SPCA thinks), who’s looking for a forever home.

Her big brown eyes will melt your heart even as her playful side puts a smile on your face. 

Hope can be shy initially but warms up quickly and, while spunky, also enjoys just snuggling up and relaxing with you. She recently had a litter of puppies that were all adopted so now it’s mama’s turn to find a loving family — preferably a calm one with no other dogs so she can be spoiled as your one and only.

To meet Hope, visit the SPCA of Westchester at 590 N. State Road in Briarcliff Manor.

Founded in 1883, the SPCA is a no-kill shelter and is not affiliated with the ASPCA. The SPCA is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. To learn more, call 914- 941-2896 or visit
