One Direction Shines Spotlight on Homeless Puppies

Ever since the debut of their first single “What Makes You Beautiful” young girls have fallen for Britpop boy band One Direction, but on a recent visit to a Philadelphia radio station the teen dreams found themselves developing cases of puppy love for three adorable adoptable four-legged fans.

St. Patrick’s day turned into St. Pitties day during a performance at Q102 as band members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson met Bella (who is available for adoption now), Bob and Cleopatra, Pit Bull puppies from Delaware County SPCA .  (Bob and Cleopatra will be available for adoption starting March 23rd.)

One Direction’s appearance with the pups has helped to direct potential pet parents to the many Pit Bulls at Delaware County SPCA who are hoping for forever homes. March is Pit Bull Awareness Month at Delaware SPCA, which is offering a special $50 fee this month for Pit Bull and Pit Bull mixes over six months of age.
