adopt a pit

YIKES! I just found out I’m the longest resident EVER at the animal control shelter  in Athens, Georgia.

Hi, I’m Biz, and I asked my best volunteer friend why no one had picked me. She said it’s really just because everyone at the shelter loves me too much to let me go! AWWWW!

Then she admitted that was selfish and she ran right out and asked the Shelter Pet Project to feature me, and here I am!

As you can tell, I’m super-happy. I love to give kisses and play  with the other dogs at the shelter. I’m cheerful, affectionate, and playful. I have a great sense of humor and some pretty awesome ears!

I haven’t mastered that “fetch” game the humans like so much, but I can toss my own ball in the air and catch it all day! Also, when I feel like some love, I will just lie right next to you and plop my paws in your lap! BEST. THING. EVER. Guaranteed!

And when I know you have treats? Wait til you see my puppy dog eyes!

I’m two years old, healthy, neutered, and weigh 45 pounds of pure sweetness. To learn more or meet me, just email my buds at   info@athenspets.net.

Not near me? Re-blogging saves lives!

Love,

Biz

SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMONDS… OH HI!

I’m Leo and I’m a dazzlingly good looking once-in-a-lifetime dog who somehow, through a series of highly unfortunate circumstances, ended up a starving puppy living on the streets!!!!! #tragedy

Well, you can imagine how glad I was when a nice lady stopped her warm car and took me out of the cold and to the vet doctor, where I was all fixed up and got to eat all the food I needed. #blessed

Then my savior named me “Leo” and took me to meet nice new friends at Adopt-a-Dog in Armonk, New York. Everybuddy there fell in love with me – who could resist? I was the staff favorite, sweet and adorable to every person who met me, and VERY smart! #overachiever

But somehow the days have become months and now years – for two years I’ve been waiting, longer than any other pet in this shelter. #theremustbesomemistake

I can understand some people may not think they’re worthy of me. THIS IS NOT TRUE! You are! I can see into your heart and I know it’s full of love! #knowallseeall

My shelter friends think I should be an only pet, but maybe we can discuss this. The thing is, when you’re as amazing as me, it’s hard to see why people would want another pet! Trained, healthy, loving… gosh, I wish I could adopt myself! #justtellingitlikeitis

If you already have pets or live really far from me, maybe you could reblog me? See, I spend a lot of time dreaming of my new home, and how can people know I’m looking for them if they never see my post? #inarguable

So please, call 914-273-1674 or email adoptions@adoptadog.org and tell them you want to meet Leo… and then just casually say, “What do you think of him?” if you want to know all about me! #onlygoodthings

Love forever,

Leo



Bunny here, hopping right into your heart!

I’m still waiting at Providence Animal Center​ in Media, Pennsylvania, for you awesome friends to reblog me and help me find my heart’s desire: a home! #dreamscometrue

As you can tell, I’m a bouncy girl, healthy and happy, just one year old. I love my toys, playing, cuddling I know tricks like giving kisses on cue, and am housetrained and walk nicely on a leash. #superstar

One trick I haven’t learned is getting along with other pets, but I more than make up for it with an impressive array of different ear positions – I could probably be an Internet sensation! #thegoodkindofviral

Want to know more? Hop on over to your email and contact adoptions@providenceac.org!

Love,

Bunny

Karina seems to think the shelter is some kind of spa vacation. This happy, funny, playful gal likes to run all around with a toy in her mouth, then hurtle herself in the grass at your feet and wriggle for belly rubs. She brings with her 100 percent pure unadulterated joy!

She’s active, but knows how to mind her manners – she sits for treats so earnestly it’s like she’s going to explode!

Adopt her, and you’ll know happiness and fun all the rest of your life.

Reblog her, and angels will fly down and sprinkled heavenly dust on you!

Karina is at Athens-Clarke County Animal Control in Athens, Georgia, who can be reached at 706-613-3540.

Now, get out there and get her home!

Captain reporting for duty, Shelter Pet Project people!

I’m currently stationed at the Babylon Animal Shelter in West Babylon, New York. I’m looking for a new assignment, as the kennel situation here, even for us officers, is not ideal in terms of allowing me to fulfill my duty to the best of my ability – which as an officer and a dog I’m honor-bound to do!

My special skills including being a big mushball and giving truly tremendous hugs. I demonstrate an exceptional degree of gratitude, get along with my fellow canine recruits, love treats, excel at marches (known in civilian parlance as “long walks”), and above all, will stay loyally and lovingly at your side forever.

I’m looking for a permanent assignment, so if you know of a unit that could use a dog of my abilities, please contact my current CO at 631-643-9270.

Your assistance in spreading the word about my availability for reassignment will be much appreciated.

Honorably and faithfully yours,

Captain
