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

I am a mom but the pups don't need me anymore, I will admit they were a handful! I am three and a half years old and a Pit Bull mix. I am excited because I am spayed so no more little scoundrels for me to take care of and I am house trained. I really like people and have made friends with all the shelter staff and while it is nice to have friends I am ready for a family. Please don't think that I am unadoptable because I am a Pit mix; you won't find a friendlier dog here at the shelter. Surely there are some empty nesters out there whose kids have left home that may want a four legged friend. After all we would have a lot in common like have puppies or in your case kids, raise them, see them start a life of their own and finally have a life of our own. So in review, I want an adult only home and I want to be the only pet. Life has not been easy but I think I am finally in a place where I can ask to be the pampered one. So let's go home, put our feet up and watch Animal Planet Funniest Dog videos! Okay, so what is the deal? Here I am again asking for a chance at happiness; I need a home. I have been Cat of the Week before but sadly I did not get adopted. Do you know I have been here for five months and I am losing hope. I am spayed and three and a half years old. I would not mind sharing a home with kids and other cats but no dogs please. I have been told that black cats never get adopted because people think we are bad luck, really? If you would just give me a chance you will see we could be so happy together. Help me please because I don't want to be here for six months, six days or six more minutes.....I am ready to go TODAY!.
