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

Go, go go, that’s me always ready to go. I am a young Pit Bull about a year old and all I can think about is playing. I would like to have a home with a fenced in yard so I can romp and run. I am able to settle but must be exercised because I am young and healthy which means I am full of energy. I absolutely don’t care for cats so a “cat-free” home is a must. An active family that takes me along on their adventures would be just the thing for me. I don’t think I would fit in well with couch potatoes. So hurry up, lets go, it is a beautiful day for some fun! Wow, everybody was calling me a dumpster baby because I was found near a dumpster. But I want you to know now they call me a sweet baby because of my wonderful personality. I am a little over five months old and I am searching for a forever home. I would be a good friend to a single person or a couple and a family with kids would be great too. I have a lot of living to do and I don’t want it to be in a shelter. So please consider adding a cute gray tiger kitty to your family. In case you didn’t get that...I am a gray tiger kitty!
