Story
Meet Millie, a 2-year-old Pit Bull Mix, gracing the world with her presence at a weight of 44.8 pounds. Her journey hasn't been easy; she came into our lives through a stroke of fate, found abandoned in a park one summer, emaciated and neglected. Due to her challenging past, Millie requires a kid-free home, where she can gradually build trust and feel secure. In the loving embrace of her foster family, Millie has truly transformed. She's become an exuberant, playful, and affectionate companion who enjoys the simple pleasures of life. Whether it's embarking on leisurely strolls, indulging in a game of fetch in the backyard, or sharing a quiet moment on your lap, Millie is a dog who knows how to savor every moment. Not only is Millie house and crate-trained, but she also coexists harmoniously with feline friends. However, it's essential to note that Millie thrives as the sole dog in the household, as she tends to resource-guard her food and toys. To provide Millie with the ideal forever home, we're seeking a patient and nurturing owner who can offer plenty of activities to engage her both physically and mentally. Millie's foster mom has mentioned that she may vocalize when her active needs aren't met, a friendly reminder that this spirited pup is happiest when she's well-exercised. Once Millie establishes that special bond with someone, she becomes a beacon of happiness and loyalty. Thanks to our generous sponsors, her adoption fee has already been covered for an approved adopter. Please note there is a $15 rabies registration fee for McLean County residents.  Millie is waiting for a loving home where her heart can continue to bloom. If you think you could be that special person, apply today to meet her and start a beautiful chapter together. She has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm checked, dewormed, and is on flea and heartworm preventatives.

Story
Meet Milo! He's a 10-month-old Pit Bull Terrier who currently weighs 53 pounds. This playful sweetie would love a home with a canine playmate, yet it's not required. Although Milo grew up with young children, he might do best with children age 5+ because he's blessed with the typical big puppy high energy level. He's house- and crate-trained. You'll quickly discover that Milo is a well-rounded boy. His hobbies include: * Running around in the house * Spending time in the yard * Going on long walks * Engaging in high-energy exercise * Playing with toys * Playing with other dogs   Milo follows his foster dad from room to room. His previous family didn't have enough time for him, so he didn't get much interaction. It might take Milo a minute to warm up to new people and situations. He just wants to be loved. Can you give Milo the exercise and love that he needs? If so, he'd love to meet you! His minimum adoption fee is $145 plus a $15 fee for rabies registration for McLean County residents.  He has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm checked, dewormed, and is on flea and heartworm preventatives.

Story
Introducing Fada, the loving 10-month-old pittie with a heart of gold and a zest for life! Still sporting her puppy charm, Fada is a 34.9 pound bundle of energy just waiting to bring joy and laughter into your home. One thing's for sure – she's head over heels for her fellow canine companions. While she's learning the ropes of polite play, Fada's enthusiasm sometimes leads to roughhousing, so she'll need a four-legged friend who can keep up with her spirited antics. In the realm of housetraining, Fada is making strides and nearly has it mastered. Though she'll tolerate her crate, nothing beats the company of her beloved people or her furry pals. With energy to spare, Fada thrives on playtime both indoors and out. Whether she's tearing around the yard with her canine buddies, embarking on long walks, or playing a game of fetch, she's in her element. Described as friendly, outgoing, and adaptable, Fada is a social butterfly who's never met a stranger she didn't like. While she's charmed everyone she's crossed paths with, her exuberance suggests she'd be best suited for a household with older children who can match her energy levels and playstyle. Given her penchant for yard zoomies, Fada would thrive in a home with a secure fence where she can stretch her legs to her heart's content. As for her feline friends, well, let's just say they're not on her list of favorites. When it comes to kids, they would need to be able to hold their own and we think her energy would do best with kids ages 10 and up. If you're searching for a furry companion to join you on all of life's adventures, look no further than Fada. With her infectious happiness and playful spirit, she's sure to become the heart and soul of your family. Come meet Fada today and discover why she's the perfect match for your active lifestyle! Her minimum adoption fee is $145 plus a $15 fee, if 4 months or older, for rabies registration for McLean County residents. She has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm checked, dewormed, and is on flea and heartworm preventatives.

Story
Introducing Frankfort, the cutest 1 year old Pit bull mix that weighs 37.1 pounds! Frankfort is on his way to mastering the art of housetraining and excels in his crate like a true champ. But don't let his missing eye fool you – this young lad's energy levels are through the roof! He's a bundle of joy who thrives on plenty of mental and physical activity, making a fenced yard the ideal playground for his spirited adventures. With his boundless enthusiasm and penchant for play, Frankfort is a natural-born goofball who's sure to bring endless love and laughter into your home. From games of fetch to joyrides in the car, he's up for any adventure that comes his way. Plus, he's a cuddle bug at heart, always ready to snuggle up with his favorite humans after a day of play. While Frankfort's energy and jumpiness may not be suited for very young children, he'll thrive in a household with kids ages 6 and up who can match his spirited nature with a bit of balance. And as much as he loves to play, Frankfort may not be the best match for feline friends due to his rough play style. According to his foster mom, Frankfort is a cyclone of chaos in the best way possible – a true testament to his playful spirit and boundless love. While he's still learning the ropes of polite play with other dogs, he's making great strides and would benefit from continued puppy training and socialization. If you're searching for a furry companion to keep you on your toes and fill your home with love and laughter, look no further than Frankfort. Come meet him today and discover why he's the perfect addition to your family!

Story
Hi there, future family! My name is Niko, and I'm an 11-month-old Pit Bull Terrier mix with a whole lot of love and energy to share. I weigh about 65 pounds, and I'm as cute as can be! Let me tell you a bit about myself and why I might just be the perfect addition to your home. I'm a well-mannered boy who's housetrained—I even go to the door to let you know when it's time for a potty break. I'm great in my crate, which makes things a lot easier for you when you need some downtime. Exercise is super important to me. I love running around in the house or yard with my doggy pals and going on walks. I'm quite the active guy, and playtime is my favorite time! I get along wonderfully with other dogs and even cats. I think cats are fascinating, though sometimes they give me a little smack when I get too curious, and then I just walk away. I'm also a people-lover, but due to my energy and playful nature, I’d do best in a home with kids over 12. Some of my favorite things include toys, fetch, tug of war, bones, car rides, and cuddles. I'm a smart cookie too—I already know "sit" and "paw." My foster mom says I'm friendly, outgoing, confident, happy, playful, and loyal. I’m looking for a home with a fenced yard because I love running and playing outside, and I prefer not to do my business on a leash or tie-out. My ideal home would have a doggy playmate. I adore my new canine foster brother, who is a 30-pound puppy. I play gently with him, whether it's tug of war or chasing him around the yard. I’m also super affectionate. I love greeting my foster family with licks and cuddles, and I no longer jump on people or furniture. I do need plenty of exercise and stimulation, or I might chew on things I shouldn't. But with the right amount of play and love, I promise to be your sweetest and most loyal companion. Are you ready to be my forever family? With love and licks, Niko His minimum adoption fee is $145 plus a $15 fee, if 4 months or older, for rabies registration for McLean County residents.

Story
Molly has not always been treated with kindness by humans, but that doesn't affect her gentle and sweet disposition. Molly recently had a litter of puppies at the ripe age of 9 years old, and she's also working through some skin issues, so she more than deserves a quiet home where she can curl up on a soft bed, preferably with a calm dog friend. She is dog and cat friendly, walks gently on a leash, is house trained, and knows "sit". Molly is a perfect foster house guest and is looking for her perfect forever place to rest and be spoiled while she lives out her golden years.

A PCH adoption counselor will contact potential adopters within three business days (PCH cannot guarantee any pet's availability, but we make every effort to accommodate adopters with a reply and possible alternative suggestions). Counselor and client will then have a conversation to answer questions, discuss any medical needs for the pet and determine the suitability of a match (if necessary, we may opt to put adopters in touch with foster parents). After a match is made, clients will be asked to sign our adoption agreement and pay the adoption fee online through our secure payment system *Please see our modified no-risk return policy. (below) The PCH adoption counselor will then set up a specific appointment time and location. Adopters should bring a pet carrier and leash to pick up. Adult pets will be wearing a collar. It is important that clients arrive on time, neither early nor late. If your adoption is scheduled at Pet Central Helps!: Upon arrival inside the Crossroads Center complex (360 Wylie Drive), look for the black Pet Central Helps! semi-trailer, which is right outside of our facility (Suite 720). Park in the parking lot and enter the facility. A PCH representative will greet you and show you to the adoption room. Your new pet will be handed to you. We will take a "Happy Adoption Day photo with your pet and family. If your adoption is scheduled at PetSmart: Park in the PetSmart Parking lot and enter the store. We will be set up just inside the store entrance. Let us know you are here to pick up your pet! A PCH representative will confirm your information and hand you your pet. We will take a "Happy Adoption Day photo with your pet and family. PCH supports a 21-day no-fault return policy in which adopters are given the opportunity to find a better match. If we are not able to provide advice/tools to keep a pet in the home we offer these options: Exchange for a pet that may be a better match** Receive a refund minus a $40 processing fee** With this approach, we can often turn mismatches into opportunities! Thank you, Pet Central Helps!
We'll also keep you updated on Athos's adoption status with email updates.

Story
Athos needs a special champion. He was born here at the shelter a little over 2 years ago and has been adopted and returned twice since then. Each experience carries its scars and unfortunately, Athos's scars will take commitment to overcome. There are many things that make him good, lovable, and even ideal in many ways: he rides well in the car, loves to play ball with people, doesn't beg for human food or get on the furniture without permission. He listens well on walks, even when he notices a squirrel he'd probably like to chase. He likes to people watch out the window and gives kisses when he's feeling cuddly and affectionate. However, something has happened to Athos that prompts him to react true to the expectations of his breed when triggered, and he will need the work of a strong handler who understands the Belgian Malinois makeup. They are instinctively protective and benefit highly from early socialization, and it is evident that Athos did not receive that. Athos has completed a board and train program with a trainer specialized in his breed, but that doesn't override his instincts in the moment when he is startled. For example, Athos has fallen asleep comfortably on the couch with a trusted person, only to be startled awake when an unexpected family member entered the room. Hackles were up, teeth were shown, and growls were heard as his instinct told him he was protecting his person from an intruder. Once he realized he recognized the visitor, he was fine and calmed down but it is in those moments Athos can be menacing. People with hoods up (like sweatshirts or coats) spark the same kind of fearful reaction. Because of his lineage, combined with the unsteadiness of a life in and out of the shelter system, Athos will only be considered for adult-only homes with a history of dog experience, preferably with the Malinois or GSD breed. He is gorgeous, smart, and affectionate with the people he knows, so the person with the right experience who can help him work through his reactions when startled will have an amazing dog for life. If you are interested in Athos and would qualify, please give us a call and a manager will discuss him with you further. Athos/Male/2yrs. 3 mo./Belgian Malinois and American Pit Bull Terrier Basic Commands: "Heel," "sit," "stay," "come," "drop"Cat introduction in a controlled environment: former adopter states good with catsGood with dogs?
