This sweet, lovely girl is desperately wishing for a home of her own, as the shelter is a loud and confusing place for her. We can’t understand why she has been with us since November, perhaps due to her older age (we believe her to be around 10 years old). But we think old dogs make great friends and Fa Li (pronounced "folly") would make a fantastic companion for someone out there! If you are looking for a loyal and friendly dog to stick by your side and sleep on your lap, please stop by the shelter and meet her today! Fa Li loves to go for walks. She has lived with a cat before and does ok with dogs of a similar temperament (easy going, older). Any children in the home should be over the age of 10.

Fa Li is a candidate for our “permanent foster” program and therefore all of her medications and medical care would be provided by the Humane Society at no cost to the foster parent. She is currently on medication for arthritis and anxiety.

For more information on Fa Li and her needs, or on the Foster program in general, please contact Aspasia Yeager at or by phone at 717-564-3320 ext 108.
