UPDATE: Pretzel Has a Foster Home!

by Vanessa Molletti on April 23, 2017

Thanks for checking in! 🙂 I found a foster home!

Name: Pretzel
Age: 2 years old
Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
Foster Period: 4 weeks

Hello Bully Lovers!

I’d like to introduce a very special pibble to you by the name of Pretzel. She just had a huge surgery done and needs some time to recover. Despite how many people love this sweet girl, I’ll say that she takes her “winning personality” to a whole new level! Pretzel’s surgery was scheduled to repair one of her knees that we knew was a luxating patella. When Pretzel was preparing to go into surgery for this, we discovered that she not only had a luxating patella in one knee – she had BOTH patellas luxating AND both of her knees had torn cruciate ligaments! As anyone might imagine, the new cost of all this blew us away and all we knew was that we couldn’t afford to fix everything.

This is where the veterinary staff who had Pretzel at the time, simply fell in love with her. They offered us a greatly reduced cost to get this girl what she needed. The staff expressed to us that she was such an incredible dog and everyone at the hospital was rooting for her, so they felt they had to help this girl. With the new offer, we were able to afford her surgery and get our deserving girl all fixed up! Now, despite the love for her we hear about daily from our staff and volunteers, we hope to get her out of the shelter and into a home where she can get pampered.

Beware potential foster failures! We have a very special girl here that needs a place to recover and maybe even a place in your heart!

Please let me know if you are interested in fostering our lovely Pretzel.

UPDATE: Brutus found a home!

by Joseph Romero on April 14, 2017

Thanks for looking! 🙂 I have gone home!

Name: Brutus
Age: 1.5 year old
Breed: Great Dane
Foster Period: 2+ weeks

Hi all,

Some of you may remember Brutus from a couple of months back. It’s kind of hard to forget a 125 pound Great Dane! Brutus has completely recovered from his surgery and we are now searching for his forever home. Our dog kennels are the perfect size for 99% of the dogs out there but good ol’ Brutus fits into that 1%. So, while we are screening through the applications of potential adopters, we’d like to find a place for him to stretch out his rather long legs. 🙂

Brutus is a very sweet dog with every person he meets so I’m sure he’d be good for most households. On the other hand, when it comes to other animals, he becomes overwhelming almost immediately. So to make life easy for all involved, we are requiring that there are no other resident animals in the household.

For those of you interested in meeting this gentle giant, we’d love to hear from you!

Thanks,

Joseph Romero
Manager of Foster Care and Medical Support
