The easiest way to begin the communication and adoption process is by filling out an adoption application.
My name is Penny. I am a 4-year-old pit bull mix who would do best in a quiet home with no other animals. I am a very sweet girl with a loving temperament. I am potty trained, spayed, and great on a leash. I am hoping that my new home will take me on walks and let me run around in the yard so that I can lose some of this baby fat that I have been carrying around for 4 years!
