Photo: TROELS SOMMERVILLE Desperate Diesel has tried everything in his search for love. He has taken out ads in newspapers, created his own Facebook page and has even resorted to begging in his fruitless quest. But the long wait could be over for the 10-month-old husky-shar pei cross puppy as the SPCA's Second Chance for Love adoptathon rolls around. This weekend -- just ahead of Valentine's Day -- the SPCA's Auckland Animal Village in Mangere will hold its third annual adoption drive. The event is aimed at uniting pets with their forever homes'', SPCA Auckland operations manager Tracy Dunn says. The village will be decorated in the Valen- tine's Day spirit and spot prizes and giveaways will add to the festivities. As an extra incentive adoption prices for all animals will be reduced by 50 percent during the weekend. More than 500 pets were adopted during last year's nationwide event and the SPCA's aiming for more this year, Mrs Dunn says. The luckless Diesel's been at the village since August last year when he was abandoned as part of an unwanted lit- ter.The rest of his siblings have all found loving homes. Canine attendant Bar- bara Shakeshaft looks after the pocket rocket'' and she's hoping he'll soon find a home too. It's a shame I can't take him home -- but I've got cats.'' Diesel can't go to a home with cats because of his high prey drive'' but he has a wonderful temperament, she says. People who don't find the right animal on the day can buy a raincheck voucher so they can take advantage of the reduced prices and come back to look for a pet another time.
