otisreddingposterKim Wolf at the Pennsylvania SPCA is pulling out all the stops to find a home for Otis Redding,  a 7-year-old pit bull mix who has been at the shelter for months.

Here’s one of the imaginative steps she has taken — a poster promoting Otis Redding.

She’s also made a video which can be seen here.

“I’m trying really hard to find him a home,” said Wolf, adding that, were it not for the five dogs she already has, she’d take him home herself.

Otis Redding’s $75 adoption fee includes neutering, a microchip, 3 free weeks of veterinary care, and 1 year of vaccinations. Wolf says he gets along with everyone, including other dogs, cats, and kids. 

We give Kim points for ingenuity and suspect that, if her efforts to find a home for Otis are successful, we’ll soon be hearing about more adoptable dogs available in Philadelphia, with names like Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Marvin Gaye and Barry White.

We were in Philadelphia two weekends ago with a booth at the first-ever Philly Trunk Show, which was sponsored by the Philadelphia City Paper and held at the brand-new Piazza @ Schmidt’s in Northern Liberties. The PSPCA was out in full force with a whole platoon of wonderful, adoptable dogs. Their van was also there, and there were plenty of staff members around to answer questions. It seemed to me that most of the dogs were “bully” types. All the dogs (well, the humans, too) were friendly and sociable. I heard in the late afternoon that two had found forever homes. The Piazza is a great, dog-friendly venue. There were plenty of dogs strolling around with their humans. Spencer had a great time.
