Team Penny - NYC Marathon

Hi. My name is Penny. My Dad likes to run far and is doing that on November 5. That's right, he's running the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon as a member of Team ASPCA! I hope he gets peanut butter at the end (peanut butter's my most favorite food). 

You may not know this, but my parents' sister Laura found me scared and neglected on the streets of Detriot in 2015. I had chewed my way through a rope to escape a bad situation, and then ran like there were squirrels everywhere. Laura trained me (she's a professional!), brought me back to health, and began to teach me that people can be good. Now, I enjoy the luxuries of South Philly, where I get to cuddle with my Dad and sous chef for my mom.

You can help dogs like me find homes, hugs, and treats by supporting the ASPCA through my Dad's marathon run. Your donation will help the ASPCA provide life-saving programs and services to millions of animals like me nationwide. They’re fighting to give abused and homeless animals a second chance at life.

So while my Dad runs lots of miles, let’s make sure each step makes a difference. Join Team Penny by making a donation and help me make a positive impact in the lives of animals! 

Xoxo,

Team Penny
