In the world of shelters, where hope and longing often intermingle, a dog named Cider found himself in a familiar predicament. For 886 days, he called a shelter his home, patiently awaiting the day when someone would choose him.

Shelter Life

Life in a shelter is no easy feat for any dog, especially for those who have spent an extended period. Despite the challenges Cider remained resilient, his spirit unbroken amidst the routine of shelter life.

A Special Treat

Recently, Cider received an unexpected treat—a day out at the park, away from the confines of the shelter. With the guidance of Lindsey King, the manager of volunteer programs at the Pennsylvania SPCA, Cider frolicked in the open space, reveling in the freedom to run and play.

A Moment of Peace

Cider took comfort in small pleasures – the grass beneath his feet and the sounds of nature all around him. He was basking in the warmth of the sun. For a brief while, a sense of peace replaced the weight of his numerous days spent in the dog shelter.

Looking for Home

Cider has a long way to go. He is waiting for a family that will accept him and show him the kindness and love he so richly deserves. His dream home would be one in which he is the only pet and where the owners are willing to show him the world in a compassionate and perceptive manner.

A Bright Future
