Video Available! Hi, my name is Zeus - I’m a 9 year-old altered male Pit Bull mix. I would make a fine addition to a quiet, chilled out home (an adult only home is ideal). I will need to be the only dog in the household as other dogs make me nervous - I'm just not sure of their intentions. I require an owner with past breed experience and a property inspection prior to adoption. The volunteers at PHS love me for my sensitive side. I soak up affection like a sponge and provide a calming presence in this crazy-busy world. Its the simple things in life I love - isn't just being together the ultimate?! I love car rides, and am super easy to walk on leash, assuming we avoid other dogs. I guess you could call me more of a “home body”/lap dog since I prefer stability and safety to exploration. Please come and ask for Zeus, ID# A553771

Help this Shelter by making a donation.
PHS/SPCA, a private non-profit guided by the humane ethic, builds healthy relationships between people and animals. As an ethical choice, we accept all animals in need of care and often provide a second chance to the neediest animals: those who would otherwise be turned away at so-called “no kill” agencies that accept only highly adoptable animals. We also serve as our County’s provider of animal rescue and control services and, as such, have no control over the number of incoming animals. Our record is outstanding. Since 2003, we have adopted 100% of healthy, adoptable dogs and cats. Our definition of “healthy” is based on the State’s definition: dogs and cats without medical or behavioral issues, those that are fully weaned and social. It excludes obviously unhealthy animals (those with injuries and illnesses or those behaviorally scarred from past treatment and mistreatment) as well as unweaned kittens and feral cats. Still, donations to our Hope Program allow us to make well, then place into new homes approx. 170 animals every month. In February 2008, the Society celebrated accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) following a comprehensive review of the shelter’s veterinary program. Community education and outreach, partnerships, and a dedicated volunteer group greatly extend our mission and work. Read more at www.PHS-SPCA.org.

When a potential adopter comes into the shelter and sees an animal he or she is interested in adopting, we ask the potential adopter to first complete an Adoption Profile. Then, one of our knowledgeable customer service representatives brings the adopter and animal together in one of our Get Acquainted Rooms. There they have a quiet, private space to get to know each other better. During the visit, the customer service representative may discuss the following:
past experiences with animals and current animals in the home
lifestyle, including work schedule and the kinds of activities they plan to do with their companion animal
housing situation - own or rent, size of yard, etc.
In order to make the best match possible for a family and home, we suggest potential adopters bring along all members of the household to meet the new companion animal and bring their current dog(s) to meet a potential dog. Adopters must also be 18 or older. Again, thank you for thinking of PHS/SPCA. We hope you find the companion animal you are looking for.
PHS/SPCA reserves the right to deny adoptions. Our priorities are the health, safety and future well-being of the animals in our care and the health, safety and expectations of people who visit us with hopes of finding a pet who will match their interests, lifestyle and existing companion animal(s).
