Effie's Story...
The lovable Effie is oh-so-happy to wander around the shelter offices, going from room to room looking for a soft chair, or better yet, a lap to jump up upon, for this girl just LOVES her creature comforts. As well she should, for Effie did not live in the best of circumstances in her life before arriving at the shelter, to say the least. Like the other dogs who were rescued by BadRap (go to www.badrap.org for more details about the rescue) from a backyard hoarding situation, Effie spent most of her life at the end of a chain at the mercy of the vagaries of the extreme Oklahoma weather. This most charming girl will flash you her sweet smile in an instant, and before you know it, she has worked her way into your heart, big time! Indeed, it is hard not to resist the endearing habit Effie has of resting her head upon your shoulder, cold nose wedged up close to your ear, nor the searching, soulful gaze of Effie's eyes. This is one special girl, with the mettle of a survivor and the soft heart of one who would be ever-grateful for the security and boundless love that a forever-home can give her.

Act quickly to adopt Effie. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Effie, a Berkeley American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Berkeley, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Berkeley.

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