Leia's Story...
Leia is a purebred Blue nose Pitt who was abandoned by her former owners. She is an amazingly well behaved dog who is fully housebroken and is ready to be the perfect house dog. She loves to run and play still at her young age of around 1 year and wants nothing more than someone to snuggle with her and accept her kisses and love. She knows all basic commands like sit, come, lay down, and leave it. She has never met a person or creature she doesn't like and is the happiest dog ever and is the biggest mush.

To adopt, simply out the adoption form for the animal you are interested in and submit email or fax it to us.

We do not have a shelter so before you can meet any of the animals in our program, you need to submit an adoption form and that animal's foster family will get back to you promptly.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leia, a Newtown 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 Newtown, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Newtown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Newtown 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 Newtown 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 Newtown paves the way for another one to be saved.
