Won't you be my friend?

Okay I'm going to try something new on my blog.  A little bit ago I posted for the Write a Post and Help a Dog! By Pedigree, here is the link:
Anyway it really got me thinking that I don't do my part for shelter dogs.  I don't have lots of money to donate to them or money to buy things to go towards them.....  So after a long deliberation I decided to make a new post in hopes that I can at least do something for them....  I'm not sure how often I will do this, but I really hope its something everyone likes.    It is the "Won't you be my friend?"  and in it I would like to post about shelter dogs currently up for adoption!  So maybe someone will see my post and be like that is my dog!  I hope to really help some of these dogs get homes! 
 So for my very first post I'm going to post a dog from the Hillside SPCA, that is were I adopted my Rocky.  And just so everyone knows this post and this "Won't you be my friend?" project is all for him!  Its my way to honor him.  So in honor and out of love for Rocky here is my first "Won't you be my friend? Dog!" 


German Shepherd Dog Mix

Adoptable in  Pottsville, PA

Bella is a 4yr old shep mix. Bella  gets along with kids and cats too.  Bella has been spayed and is ready to be adopted. 
This little girl is at the Hillside SPCA and she needs a loving home.If you are interested in adopting her here is Hillsides information: 
Here is a link to the Hillside webpage: 
you can also contact them by phone:  (570)622-7769
Or you can even visit them their hours are:  11am to 3pm everyday including Saturday and Sunday.

Hillside does adopt to people anywhere, not just in Schuylkill County.

    Remember a dog is a life time responsibility.  They need love and care.  Adopting or deciding to be a pet owner is not a decision you should make lightly.  But if you are ready for a pet and ready to take that step in making a life long friend who will always love you even if your having a really bad hair day or if you clothes don't match, a friend who will get excited just because you are home even if you only been gone for 5 minutes, a friend who will sleep at your feet at night and not care if you snore,  a friend who will eat your burnt dinner and act as if it taste amazing, a friend who will love you just because your you....  If you are ready for that friend Then please consider adopting.  
If your interested in adopting today then please consider Bella,  because something with a face that sweet deserves a loving home.

~~Is Won't you be my friend? something you would like to see me post more?  Maybe I can even let you guys email me links to adoptable dogs in other areas that I can post about?~~

I will also put all this info in its own tab so its easy to find.
This blog post is also part of the Blog the change for animals. Bloggers and blog readers, please help us publicize Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescuea special online global event held on July 23, 2012 stressing the importance of dog adoption.  Together we can make a difference! 


  1. I think this a great post, and perfect for Blog The Change days. I hope Bella finds a home...thanks for spreading the word about a shelter dog in need! (and thanks for adopting your own pup from a shelter too.)

  2. Thanks so much for Blogging the Change by sharing Bella's story. She's beautiful and certainly deserving of a forever home, just like Rocky found with you!

  3. Great post for Blog the Change. You also might consider going to and picking up one of their adoption banner/widgets for your blog. You can even make it just show your local shelter and it will update itself.

    While shelters need adoptions, there are also other things necessary to them you can blog about too. Volunteers, fostering, donations, and even a drive for old towels/blankets periodically for the animals to sleep on. (They go through laundry FAST!)

  4. We are keeping our fingers and paws crossed hoping that Bella finds a new home!

  5. What a great idea! I love the comment "a friend who will get excited just because you are home even if you only been gone for 5 minutes." My dogs are like this!

    Thanks so much for Blogging the Change and for spreading the word about the July 23rd dog rescue event. I hope you will post about another dog on that day as well. With folks like you promoting this special day, it’s sure to be a success!

  6. I love this idea for a regular feature! I think it's fantastic to highlight dogs looking for their forever homes, and I love your description of all that we get from them in return. :)


  7. Won't you be my Friend is a great idea! And I'm sure the pups you help will be the first to agree.
    Thanks for blogging the change for animals,

  8. I hope Bella finds her forever home soon! Great idea to have "won't you be my friend" as a regular feature :)

  9. this is a great idea, to help the dogs find their forever home.

  10. Aw, I hope Bella finds a forever home.

  11. I love this! I wish I could adopt Bella :-( But I hope she finds a loving home <3

  12. I sure hope Bella is able to find a good forever home. Both of my dogs are rescues from abused/neglected backgrounds. You definitely could not tell that now. They are spoiled princesses, who leave toys scattered all over the house and yard, and who pretty much rule the house. Just the way it should be, lol.

  13. I love this post. I think people should adopt much rather than buying ridiculously expensive pets. All of my pets (two cats and two dogs) have either been rescue animals or from the shelter.

  14. Thank you for opening your heart, efforts and blog to rescue Dog. Have a a great day : )

  15. what a great post! bless you for your love for helping animals.

  16. I shared this on FB (Wall) I have a rescued dog too. We can be promoters for Pet Adoptions.
