Contessa is an exuberant 5 year old who was surrendered to the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center by a tearful owner because his mobile home park would not allow her breed anymore(we found it curious that they would have a ban on bulldog/pit bull/meatball mixes, it seems awfully specific ). Coming in at 50 pounds she is the quintessential big dog stuck in a not so big dog's body. She is low to the ground, round and quite comical. She has an amazing zest for life and despite being abandoned, she loves with abandon. Her favorite activities include licking people's faces and toes. She also has a great appreciation for belly rubs.
Contessa is potty trained and is currently learning the ways of the leash quite quickly. Her former owner told us she lived with a min pin and she definitely gets very excited to meet every dog and person she passes. Contessa would do best with an experienced owner if there are other dogs in the home or she would be a great only dog, she does not mind receiving all the attention.
Contessa brings so much joy to the people she meets. She is currently in boarding and just dying for the daily love and attention she so desperately deserves.
Please consider fostering or adopting Contessa. Contact Jana Savage @ 857-998-7970 or JanaS@ AnimalAdvocatesAlliance.org.
Rescue Group Info...
United Hope for Animals is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to creating a world where our relationship with animals is guided by compassion and responsibility. We actively work toward bringing an end to the needless suffering of companion animals through community-based programs here at home and across the border.
The statistics are sobering: Together, one unspayed female dog, her unaltered mate and their offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in six years. Even with its prevalent spay/neuter programs, the United States euthanizes more than 6 million dogs and cats each year. Through our Shelter Support Program, we work in partnership with local shelters to reduce this number by raising public awareness about the overpopulation crisis faced by shelters, facilitating rescue and adoption of sheltered animals, and, in the process, bringing identity and dignity to the many lives that would otherwise pass anonymously through an overburdened animal control system.
Across the border, we sponsor a regular Spay/Neuter clinic to provide spay/neuter services to families who could not otherwise afford them, and through our Pererra program work to provide a humane and gentle passing to pets who have no other options.
