Zipper's Story...
Trying to stay warm this winter? Try zipping up with Zipper! Zipper is a gorgeous 3 year old blue pittie who is just 100% sweetness. He originally came to ACL a few years ago when he was just a young pup, and he was adopted out. How strange it was for us to receive a call about a truck driver who found him running stray in Virginia two years later! The good news is the years have been good to Zipper - he's happy, healthy, and he still has the people-loving disposition we knew so well when he was a baby. Zipper has mellowed now that he's a young adult, and he walks great on his leash, loves to get lots of hugs and squeezes, and he settles down nicely for TV time. Zipper is good with respectful kids of all ages. He's a little stiff and uncomfortable with other dogs, though, so he'd do best as the only animal in the home, at least for now. If you're interested in meeting Zipper, email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org or come on in today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zipper, a Oak Park Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Oak Park, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Oak Park.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Park already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oak Park breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Park paves the way for another one to be saved.
