Story
Meet Bruno, the sweetest boy you'll ever meet! This adorable dog is not just a pet, but a cherished member of our family. He's incredibly affectionate, always ready to shower you with love and cuddles. Bruno is well-behaved, house-trained, and great with people of all ages. He enjoys long walks in the park, playing fetch, and lounging by your side. Sadly, due to unforeseen circumstances, we're unable to bring Bruno with us as we move. We're looking for a loving home where Bruno will be cherished and cared for just as much as he is with us. If you're seeking a loyal companion who will brighten your days with endless joy, Bruno is the perfect match for you!

Story
Jolene is an adult spayed female Pit Bull Terrier Mix. She weighs about 50 lbs. She is a very sweet and active girl. She is crate trained and can be particular with other dogs. She is currently at the Shelter. Volunteers For Animals periodically pulls dogs from other shelters to free up space; this helps avoid euthanizing healthy, adoptable animals. We are able to do this through the generosity of many people such as the originating shelter staff, transporters, foster volunteers and others who help with pulling fees, vet bills and finding good homes once they are here. The adoption process includes an application that is completed by the potential owner. If there are multiple applications on the same animal, the animal will go to the best home for that particular animal - not necessarily the first application. Fees for the rescues animals can range from $100 to $300 per animal which needs to be cash or a check - NO CREDIT CARDS. If you are interested in any of the Rescue dogs, please email us. Do not call the Shelter regarding rescue animals - they have no information about these dogs. All rescue animals are in foster homes with volunteers - NOT at the Shelter - unless otherwise noted.  Here is the adoption process:   To adopt an animal you must complete an application and be approved. There is a $60 fee for any animal which needs to be cash or a check - NO CREDIT CARDS. If the animal is not spayed or neutered, there is a $35 deposit which will be returned upon proof of surgery.
