My story

Meet Bernie! Bernie is a gorgeous 4 year old pitbull with such a love for life!

Bernie was rescued by an amazing foster after she found herself as a stray at the local shelter. She has completed heartworm treatment and treatment for her skin infection; Bernie has never let this little bump in the road stop her from enjoying her newfound freedom.

Bernie is an active girl who loves to go on walks and play with any toy in sight! When it is time to relax for the day, you can find Bernie cuddled up next to her humans begging for belly rubs, or chewing on a bone. She will thank you with a big smile and unwavering loyalty!
She takes weekly outings in public, rides great in a car, and is doing great socializing and working on a leash.

While she is highly allergic to cats and cannot be in a home with them, she loves kids and humans! She does not currently play with other dogs in a group or pack setting. She would need to be temperament tested with any other animals because she is a typical bulky breed and enjoys playing gregariously.

All Abandoned Pet Project Rescue adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up to date on age appropriate vaccines upon adoption. The standard minimum donation for dogs over six months to seven years is $200, puppies under six months is $250, dogs eight years and over are $100 unless specified otherwise. You can view all the adoptable pets and fill out an adoption application online on our website at bit.ly/APPRAdoptableDogs. For more information, you can email adopt@abandonedpetproject.org.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Interested adopter fills out an application online.

Adoption team reviews application, completes vet and landlord checks.

Adoption team will notify applicant if they are approved or declined, or if we need to redirect to a pet that is a better fit for the applicant or if the pet they applied for has other applicants in front of them.

If approved, adoption team will send an email connecting foster parent to adopter. We ask that the applicant and foster parent make initial contact within 48 hours of the meet & greet email going out.

If it seems like a fit over the phone then foster parents and potential adopter will set up a home visit.

After meet and greet, the foster and potential adopter will let the adoption team know how they would each like to proceed.

Note: We do not do onsite adoptions. Foster pets will return to the foster home after the meet and greet is complete, even if both parties want to move forward with adoption.

If a fit for both parties, the adoption team will send the adopter a link for adoption fee payment and an adoption contract.

Adoption team will let foster know once the adoption is complete and you are then free to coordinate handoff!
