So we’ve been talking about getting a puppy #2 to add to our brood and as a playmate for Bayley – but we need to settle in a little bit more and I need a job. Despite the fact that I know we can’t get another dog yet, I like to look at puppies anyway. Charlie and I went to the Charlottesville SPCA and were very pleasantly surprised at how nice the facilities are. Neither of us had ever been to a shelter before and were a little apprehensive. All the dogs seemed to be very well cared for and the staff was very helpful and knowledgable. If you are looking for a new addition to your family – definitely check them out. The shelter also had quite a few cats to adopt. The SPCA is located at 3355 Berkmar Dr. It’s behind the Lowe’s shopping center on 29N.
