I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Groot's Info...

I am a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Groot's Story...

Groot is a 33 lbs and fully vetted now, including HW neg and microchip. We need a rescue that is willing to take him in to a foster home and work with him. He allows us to touch and pet him, but he gets as small as possible in the corner and no eye contact. He does not come out of his kennel if we are around. We have to open the door and leave the room. I have had him out with another female puppy and he finally started playing some, but then she went to a rescue and he is back to being unsure of everything. He needs to learn to be a dog. He has also been out with some of the other bigger dogs and was fine. He was fine with cats too. I try to sit in his kennel when I am there for him to get used to me but he hasn't loosened up yet. He won't even take a treat from me. It is so pitiful.

If you know of a rescue that might be willing to take this boy on, please let us know. His rescue fee to an approved rescue is $70 as he is fully vetted.

Our shelter is a first come first adopt/rescue facility.There are no holds placed on dogs for potential adopters/rescue, however if a party is interested in a particular dog before it becomes available they may send an inquiry to and those inquiries will be kept track of in order of received once dog becomes available. Adopters/rescues will be notified what order they are in in regards to each dog. They are available at 8am on the day they are available. Non vetted dogs will have an appointment scheduled and will be available for pickup for adoption the day after their surgery. Approved rescues may pull a dog and have vetted at their own expense once available to the public.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Groot, a Lewisburg American Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Bulldog for sale in Lewisburg, or seeking a American Bulldog dog from a breeder in Lewisburg.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lewisburg 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 Lewisburg 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 American Bulldog breeders who help with American Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lewisburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
