You Are Here > Be a Guardian Angel

We often get animals at the Hillside who need expensive urgent or prolonged care.  Often, senior dogs require specialized medications that can really take a bite out of our budget.  Just one bottle of medication can cost as much as $200.  Sometimes an animal in our care needs life-saving emergency surgery or extensive veterinary care.  Joe's Fund provides the funds to cover ALL medical treatment for animals at Hillside and helps us provide critical care for them in their time of need.   When you sign up to be a Guardian Angel  for Joe's Fund and the animals featured here, you become a part of a family of supporters who truly are "guardian angels" for animals in need. Each animal here will be helped by Joe's Fund.  You will find a donation button in their story.  Simply click on the button and you will be able to donate quickly and securely online. Watch this page for updates on the animals featured here. Thank you for your generous support!!

Teddy  was surrendered to the Hillside when his owner could not pay for veterinary care for Teddy's eye. Teddy will get immediate veterinary care and will need emergency surgery to remove his eye.  This sweet little guy is neutered, 6 years old, lived with other animals. Teddy will need a good, loving home once available for adoption.
Joe’s Fund at the Hillside will pay for the costly veterinary services that Teddy receives. Without this special fund, Hillside SPCA could not continue to give so many cats and dogs the urgent medical and surgical care they need. Please donate to Joe’s Fund, the true angel of HiIllside’s animals. If interested in adopting Teddy, please contact the shelter directly at 570-622-7769 or visit 7 days a week. Thank you!

LeahLeah came in as a stray approx 1 1/2 weeks ago and as you can see from pictures was in very poor condition.  She has been getting treated with medication for her severe skin problem.  Starting yesterday she just wasn't herself.  She had blood in her stool and was little lethargic.  Today she continued with the bloody stools, was vomiting and very lethargic.  We immediately took her to the vet.  She is one sick little girl.  She had a fever of 105.1, and has a very bad viral infection.  The mange has her immune system down and that is why she became so ill.  She was admitted to the vet hospital and will be receiving IV fluids, blood work, and testing.  Hopefully getting her medicine through IV she will start to feel better faster, but she is certainly one sick little girl. We need all the prayers we can get for her right now and are asking for help to pay for her hospital stay (unknown for how long she will be there).  Anyone who can open their hearts to such a sweet, innocent little angel and make donations in her honor would be so greatly appreciated. Joe's Fund has been hit especially hard and needs help so that we can continue to make sure animals in need, like Leah, can get the medical help they so desperately need. You can donate securely online by clicking the yellow donate button below.  Make sure to choose Joe's Fund when giving. Donations may also be mailed to Joe's Fund, Hillside SPCA, PO Box 233, Pottsville, Pa. 17901, note "Joe's Fund" on your check or MO.


hank you!
