Ruff Ruff! My name is Jamie
|Breed:||American Pit Bull Terrier Mix||Color:||Brindle - With White||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Female||ID#:||5395012-A19054799-Foster Care|
I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Jamie is friendly to people of all sizes and has shown wonderful tolerance for little ones' poking and prodding her, but because of her size and strength and enthusiasm, visits with kids under a certain size needs careful monitoring. She still gets over-excited for the first few minutes of a visitor's entrance to the house, but she will sit when asked.
Breed: Pit bull mix (Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.)
Age: 1-2 years old
Weight: 53 pounds
Reason for surrender to shelter: Jamie was found as a stray
If you are interested in meeting Jamie, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. If you have questions, please email the above address or contact our adoption staff member at 215-298-9680, ext. 16.

PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization. PAWS pulls at-risk animals from the City of Philadelphia's animal control shelter and adopts them out, either from our adoption center (located at 2nd and Arch Streets), from one of our adoption locations at area PETCO and PetSmart stores, or from our network of foster homes.
PAWS is dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
When you adopt a pet from PAWS you truly save a life!
PAWS' Adoption Center in Old City is open Monday-Friday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 11a.m.-7p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please reference this animal's ID NUMBER when inquiring about this pet.
All animals adopted from PAWS are up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. Adoption fees are as follows: $150 for dogs older than 1 year, $200 for puppies under 1 year, $50 for cats over 6 months of age, and $75 for cats under 6 months of age.

PAWS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is Philadelphia’s largest no-kill shelter and is working to make it a place in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home. PAWS rescues animals at the city’s animal control shelter that are in the greatest danger of being euthanized and places them either up for adoption or into temporary foster homes. Through its adoption locations, special events, and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for thousands of animals each year. Support for PAWS funds lifesaving programs such as adoption and foster care, low-cost vaccinations, spay/neuter surgeries, and other efforts, all of which reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia’s homeless animals.
