Theres no bigger smile than Kody's.  He is a very sweet boy who rarely barks. Kody walks well on a leash but does not know his own strength. Kody also follows verbal cues very well. He loves his morning and late afternoon walks. When not on walks Kody can be found outside sunbathing or playing with his Jolly Ball. He is a very confident dog and is loyal to his human companions. Kody will do best in an only dog home with older children. This ranch favorite will be a great addition to a family who understands him and knows how to handle a very strong dog. Kody is up to date on all vaccinations, microchipped and is neutered. .Kody is located in Harper, Texas and can be transported to any location in the US or Canada. ##1499377##

Story
Stella is a 6 month old pitbull puppy. She was found being sold in a crate on the side of the road with her siblings. She is extremely playful and loves attention. She does great with other dogs and kids. She has a ton of energy but has her snuggly lap dog moments. We lack the space for her to get her energy out and properly potty train her as I am disabled and we have many stairs in our home, I cannot care for her and train her as necessary. It is unknown if she’s had shots given the circumstances in which we found her. Will not go to just anyone, she needs a good patient home where she’ll get the training and love she needs

Story
Meet Coco! Coco is one of our longest residents at the shelter and is looking for a special home to help teach her that the world is not so scary. We are looking for a very structured foster or adoptive home for Coco due to some of the behaviors we have seen here in the shelter. Coco is very excitable and has a hard time calming herself down. When she is kept to a routine, less of these behaviors appear. Staff has been working with Coco to learn that calm behavior equals more attention and rewards! All interactions with Coco need to be done in a calm manner and stop if Coco starts getting overstimulated. This girl will need to go into an adult-only home, and without other animals. She would do best in a home where someone can dedicate time long-term to her training. We are unsure of how Coco was treated in her past, but we can only imagine it was not kindly. She is quick to react to situations or people that she finds uncomfortable or scary and can take multiple meetings to warm up to new people. Due to this, we are suggesting only positive training in her future. Coco is very treat motivated and enjoys snuffle mats and they have worked as great training tools for her! Coco has stolen the hearts of many staff and we would love to see her thrive in a home. The staff who works with her has seen how sweet Coco can be and how hard she has worked to be her best and not to mention that big smile! We are able to see the playful, goofy side of this pup and want her to find a home where she is comfortable enough to show that to someone else! If you are potentially interested in fostering or adopting Coco, please speak to staff to further discuss her behaviors and what placement we are seeking for her. Coco is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Availability date: 10/17/2022

Meet the Cats of Gettysburg at the Kitty Corner by Forever Love Rescue Hailey is an extra large pitbull. She is very friendly and playful. She seeks love and attention. Hailey due to her size would not be good with young children or frail adults. She would be okay in a home with older, considerate children. She is 90 lbs. She loves to snuggle/sleep on couch with you, but does snore at times. She would do well with another dog w/proper introduction. Hailey is interested in cats but would chase them so no cats in her new home. *** a courtesy post means that this dog is NOT part of Forever love Rescue.   We are trying to help a fellow rescuer find a home for this dog.   We accept the adoption application and do some basic checks for them and then all communication will be handled by them afterward.   We do not attest to the information they provide or to the health / vet care of the dog.   Specific questions about this dog should be emailed to us at foreverloverescue@gmail.com so that we can forward it to the appropriate person.  Meet the #CatsOfGettysburg - Apply to adopt at bit.ly/AdoptFLR and we will help you find the purr-fect kitty for your family!  Visit dozens of our adoptable cats and kittens at our Kitty Corner adoption center 39 Queen St in historic Gettysburg PA on any Saturday or Sunday from 11am-3pm.  All of the cats listed are located in or near Gettysburg unless otherwise noted.

Story
Meet the Cats of Gettysburg at the Kitty Corner by Forever Love Rescue Meet Angel! Could she be your one and only??? This sweet 3 year old pittie girl almost lives up to her name every minute as long as there's not another pet around. Obviously her foster mom has a couple of other dogs that they have to keep carefully separated. We would love to find her a home where she can shine! She loves to go on car rides and will wait patiently while you walk into the gas station quick. She does great on quiet walks. She has no problem hanging out at the office all day and greeting visitors. And she is the best snuggler at night! We keep saying that she would make an awesome companion for a truck driver!!! She loves food, treats and toys. She does almost anything on command. She enjoys a quick trot through the fenced yard but quickly comes back to be a couch potato and follow her new temporary momma around while she does chores. She is content to be almost anywhere her people are but also behaves while they are away if she feels safe and cozy where she is. She also has no problem jumping into an open crate for a nap, so we think she is crate trained too. For more info please email foreverloverescue@gmail.com Let's find Angel the home she deserves!!!Meet the #CatsOfGettysburg - Apply to adopt at bit.ly/AdoptFLR and we will help you find the purr-fect kitty for your family!  Visit dozens of our adoptable cats and kittens at our Kitty Corner adoption center 39 Queen St in historic Gettysburg PA on any Saturday or Sunday from 11am-3pm.  All of the cats listed are located in or near Gettysburg unless otherwise noted.

All she wants is to be loved back.Star would do best in a home where she is the center of attention. Loves to play and lounge on your lap like a couch potato as often as possible.
