Pets

Pet of the week at the SPCA: Springs

At 27 pounds, there’s a lot of Springs to love!! While she’s not much of an athlete, she is skilled in the art of lounging and purring. As soon as you get within her vicinity, she starts to purr and enjoys a good cheek scratch and a head rub. She even enjoyed some gentle brushing. If you have a soft couch and a sunbeam in your house, Springs would love to be your forever friend.

Religion

As I have been reading through the report, released last month, I am horrified that the jury was able to point to over 300 priests committing sexual crimes, and over 1,000 victims that the Catholic Diocese of Pennsylvania failed to handle appropriately over the last 70 years.
