Hi there! I'm Lewis, a 2 year old brindle pit bull! I love kids and other dogs. I may be a little hyper at first but I just want to play, and who wouldn't want to play with me?! I've had sorta a rough start in life. I was shot with a shotgun...but then the staff of unleashed saved me! I didn't have a name when I first came here but now my name is Lewis! I was really hungry and my body was shot and I didn't know why. I was put in a room full of toys and blankets and a bed but I really didn't know what they were because I never had any before. I also got to eat this really yummy canned food with gravy and it's my favorite. I don't get it a lot anymore because I'm plump now and my skin has healed over! I am in foster care at the moment with my other brindle buddies who I really enjoy playing with. Another thing I enjoy is raw hides! I love those :) if you want to get to know more about me, email unleashed and let my foster parents know you would like to see me! I will do tricks for a treat so bring some along :)

Cats: Yes (but I'm scared of them)
Dogs: yes
kids: yes

About Unleashed Pet Rescue & Adoption

About Our Shelter...

Unleashed Pet Rescue and Adoption (UPRA) was founded in 2011. Two independent rescuers in St. Joseph, Missouri had been rescuing dogs from local shelters and owner surrenders for several years, and had grown a tremendous passion for saving lives, especially the bully breeds in need.

Danielle Reno had been working hand in hand with several shelters in her local area, such as Atchison, Kansas City, St. Joseph, and Mission KS to save lives and work towards finding homes for pets in need of fur-ever homes, while Rachel Kovac was just a few miles away in the same city doing the same exact thing, as well as running several training programs for pets and humans (Prison Pup Program) and branching her rescue work out nation-wide. Eventually, these two young ladies crossed paths, and decided that they would make a great team together.

So, they officially became a licensed non-profit rescue together and continue their fight in saving the lives of homeless pets and striving to improve the image of bully breeds in society. We pull from high-kill shelters and often are at capacity at both our shelter and through our foster program, so our need for fosters and adopters, as well as donations, is always at very high demand to continue doing what we do. Thank you in advance for your support!
