Facts about Gia

  • Breed: American Bulldog

Gia immediately stands out to any who meet her as an incredibly warm and friendly dog! She approaches people with joy in eyes and a wiggly body that touches your heart right away. She loves to come close and is happy to give you lots of kisses, but she is not overpowering and seldom jumps up on people. Besides her outgoing personality, she also has a gorgeous little bulldog body and beautiful coloring with her two toned face. Gia was once “only a yard dog” but since VOCAL took her in she has done very well with in her foster home with house-training and other house manners. She sleeps quietly in her crate at night. At first she was crated when left at home alone but has earned her foster family’s trust and has freedom of house and yard now. Gia’s adjustment to being with other dogs has been marvelous. It is always a good idea to go slow with introductions, but she is currently with a pack of 8 other dogs and gets along with them all. Gia would not mind being an only dog though as she is very people focused. Typical of her breed, she is eager to please and trains well. She knows “sit” and also “stay” – even when being required to wait for her food! Gia will be an absolute blessing to whatever family adopts her!

About VOCAL - Voices of Change Animal League, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We have seen the issues of pet overpopulation firsthand. Our board members, staff and volunteers have worked with local animal shelters and have seen the thousands of animals in Marion County that have nowhere to go, who are often abandoned and/or killed. We also recognize the strength of the human-animal bond and have witnessed the situations that animals often fall into during a family crisis. We have made it our mission to help these animals. We hope you will join us!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We don't have a shelter facility; all of our animals are in foster care. We think this is pretty great! Having adoptable animals in foster homes teaches them pet manners such as housebreaking and social skills. It also allows us to learn a lot about the animals and helps us determine the type of home the animal will be most successful in.

If you are wondering how to meet an animal you are interested in adopting, you have to fill out an application first. Then, if we feel you could be a fit, we set up a home visit and meet and greet with the animal.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an adoption fee for both dogs and cats, an application, and a home visit. We end the process with our adoption contract.

If you are interested in applying for one of our animals, please visit our website Our dog and cat applications can be found under the "Paperwork" heading or on the "Adopt" page.

We accept multiple applications on all of our animals; we believe in finding the best fit home. We don't place animals on a first come, first serve basis. Once we receive your application, we will reach out to you to review your application if we feel you could potentially provide the best fit home for the animal.
