This week's Adopt-a-Pet at the Pennsylvania SPCA is Rufus, a 2-year old Labrador/pit bull mix.

Rufus is a lovebug that can't get enough pats on the head or scratches on the back. He's easy to handle and responsive to commands. He also loves long walks and playing outside.

To adopt Rufus, contact the PSPCA, 350 E. Erie Ave., at 215-426-6300 or visit www.pspca.org. Please provide his tag number, 1162398, when inquiring.

The adoption fee is $75 and includes neutering, vaccinations, microchipping, three weeks of free care at the PSPCA's animal hospital and 45 days of free ShelterCare pet insurance. *
