My story

Meet Nino. He is a 3 year old Pitbull mix who is needing a new home because he recently bit his owner's younger child - so he will need to go to a new home with no kids. He is not aggressive or mean at all normally, he just had that one incident with her child. Nino is very sweet and loves people, but it does take him some time to get used to other dogs. He is housebroken and kennel trained, and he is up to date on vaccinations and is neutered.
*Adoption fee $60

Additional adoption info

Adoption fees vary according to the animal. We often provide adoption discounts for senior animals or animals which have been at the shelter longer. All animals come with age-appropriate vaccines and are spayed/neutered. Dogs are also microchipped. All adopters must complete an application and provide a vet reference. Phone inquiries may take several days to receive a return call, but emails and FB messages usually receive a same-day reply.
