This girl is an angel she loves people, kids and other dogs. She absolutely loves to go on walks. Keep in mind there will be background checks since this is a pit bull and we want to make sure she goes to the right family.When she came to us as a stray she had had an embedded collar was severely under weight. She had a frozen elbow from an old injury left untreated, she was evaluated at the vet and she is doing wonderful now and we think even the elbow is getting better.

We work with out of state rescues and animal rescue groups all over the country.

Our Adoption Process...

Our dog adoption fee is $40.00 which includes a microchip. All our animals are microchipped prior to leaving the shelter. There is an adoption application that must be filled out prior to adopting your dog. If the dog is not spayed or neutered you will have to sign a sterilization contract with us and the adoption is not legal until you bring us back a copy of where your dog was spayed/neutered and a copy of the rabies certification. Some of our dogs and cats have been spayed /neutered. On cats the adoption fee is $40.00. As with the dogs, adoptions aren't legal until animal has been given a rabies shot and been spayed/neutered.
