Receive a special discount on the adoption fee by adopting a Pet of the Week!!!

It seems I just canít get a break. My previous owner had problems, one of them being homeless, so I came to the shelter. I thought someone would rescue me and take me home but I have been waiting over four months...I am sad! I have a lot to offer, I am house trained and know how to sit, shake and stay, and I like kids. A special angel has paid my adoption fee hoping that would help me get adopted, yet I am still here. Please donít be afraid of me because I am Pit Bull. It is true I want to be the only pet in the home; I just donít care for other dogs or cats but I LOVE people. My dream is to become someoneís best friend. The only request I have is that you play fetch with me, it is my favorite game. I am hoping someone reads this and comes straight to the shelter to get me. I am anxiously awaiting your arrival. I never knew there was such a thing as an animal shelter because I have always had a home. However, my person can no longer care for me due to her illness. So I am a bit frightened as you could imagine. I never saw so many animals in one place before. I would like to leave here as soon as possible. I would be a good choice to be adopted because I am spayed and litter trained. I have good manners and get along with other cats, dogs and children. I know what having a nice home is like so shelter living is difficult for me. I am hanging on but barely. I would like a new home as soon as possible. Can you help me?
