Susquehanna SPCA Seeks Foster For Puppies, Mom

Jim Kevlin/The Freeman’s Journal – Jasmine nurses her puppies at the Susquehanna SPCA. The shelter is looking for a foster family to care for the dogs until they’re old enough to be adopted.

HARTWICK SEMINARY – A surrendered dog gave birth to six puppies overnight at the Susquehanna SPCA, and now the shelter is looking for a foster family to take in the mother, Jasmine, and her brood until the puppies are old enough to be adopted out.
According to Becca Daly, communications coordinator, the ideal foster would be a quiet home, with no other pets or young children, and would be able to bring the dogs back to the shelter as necessary for medical appointments and checkups.
Daly said the dogs, including Jasmine, are all in good health and will be available for adoption after the puppies are weaned, usually 8-10 weeks.
Executive Director Stacie Haynes said that the owners did not tell them Jasmine was pregnant when they surrendered her last week, and when she came in this morning, she found the new puppies.
To volunteer, call (607) 547-8111 ext 100.



Christian Alexander amd Natalie Johnson, both of Cooperstown, were named to the Fall 2019 Dean’s List at SUNY Purchase. Alexander is studying Journalism, Johnson is studying Anthropology.
