Plea for Puppy Goes Viral

Plea for Puppy Goes Viral

A family of regular visitors to the SPCA of Anne Arundel County has gone viral after their 8-year-old daughter’s plea to her father for a puppy.

On Wednesday March 21, 2018, writer Brendan Greeley tweeted a photo of the front page of his morning newspaper, where, scrawled across the top, his daughter had created her own headline advert: “CAN I PLEASE GET A PUPPY?!”

The notable tagline was “a real one” – we assume referring to the family’s current dog that is not a puppy. “Having studied my habits and preferences, my daughter hacked my attention this morning for her political agenda,” Brendan wrote on his twitter, which, with the hashtag “#teampuppy,” soon garnered over 36,000 retweets.

Brendan tweeted again, to which he attached a letter to the #teampuppy advocates:

We told her she could have the puppy. You win, #teampuppy. You win.

 

In the letter Brendan wrote:

Our daughter, 8, loves going to the SPCA of Anne Arundel County, Maryland. She’s finally on the schedule in May to read bedtime stories to the dogs. And last month she donated $62 dollars of her own allowance. The Anne Arundel SPCA is her charity of choice. Please make it yours, too.”

Since the tweet went out we have had an amazing outpour of support, and we thank everyone who has donated already!
