The Tookany Valley Chronicles: Pet Adoption Edition – Sultan

“Sultan is seeking a new home,” according to Ms. Katie Nagy, Humane Educator at the Montgomery County SPCA.

According to Ms. Nagy, Sultan is described in his SPCA file as a “5-year-old, male Staffordshire Terrier Mix who was brought in to the shelter when his owner was moving.  Sultan is a handsome mush face who will need an experienced dog owner to help teach him his manners.”



“He should not go to a home with children under 13 years old since he is a big, strong boy,” his SPCA file continued.

“If you think you might have the right home for Sultan to learn how to be a polite pet,” stated Ms. Nagy.  “Please contact the Montgomery County SPCA Abington location for more details and to request an application to adopt Sultan.”

According to a statement from the Montgomery County SPCA, in order to adopt an animal you must:

• Have valid photo identification.

• Be at least 18 years of age.

• Be the owner/renter of a property or have the owner’s/renter’s permission (this includes adults living with their parents).

• Provide proof that pets are permitted under a rental/lease agreement (if applicable).



Adoption hours at the Abington Shelter of the Montgomery County SPCA are Monday through Friday from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Saturday from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and Sunday from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 PM.

The adoption fee for Sultan is $65.00 plus tax.

The Abington Shelter of the Montgomery County SPCA is located at:
