Pet name:
Pit Bull Terrier
Brown / Chocolate
Meet this beautiful pup named Thelma! She and her sister Louise came in as strays on August 25, 2023 and were never reclaimed so they are now awaiting their adoption day. They are 1 year old,  current  on shots, now spayed, and full of puppy playfulness and love to share. Happy girl who still considered to be a puppy and will need an owner that will work with her on basic puppy manners/training so she can continue to mature into even more amazing adult dog. Shes smart and wants to make her humans happy. Loves to go for walks and rides great in the car. When you approach her in her kennel or run she barks but once out she’s the best and a complete love bug!! Stop by for a visit with Thelma  today and give her  a chance at a happily ever after that she deserves! 
If you have another dog and are interested in meeting another potential new furry member please bring him or her to the shelter and meet on neutral ground before adopting. No need to shuffle the animals around any more than necessary. Please know that 1 mosquito bite can create heart worms and they can be fatal if not treated. It is VERY important to keep your pets healthy and protected by keeping them on a once a month heart worm and flea/tick prevention. These animals are counting on you as their owner to provide them with lots a love and the proper health care so PLEASE make sure you are aware and prepared before adopting. Owning a pet is an extra expense and responsibility but is so worth every minute and penny you invest in them. They will add lots of joy and unconditional love if given a fair chance.
The shelter is open Mon.-Fri. 10-1, 2-5, Sat. 10-4.  Adopt a homeless pet and save a life. If you can not adopt right now come out and volunteer and make a difference in the lives of these animals while they await their FOREVER home.  
In order to adopt any of our "bully breeds" there is special paper work that will need to be collected and approved prior to the adoption.  We love all of our dogs and want to make sure to place our "bully babies" in homes best suited for them.
