Kennel #10 Pepper Bit Bull Terrier Mix Medium Young Male URGENT! LONGER TIMER!  Sweetie. Loves to run. All the people who have come to visit the kennel lately have walked right past me, and they all keep talking about other dogs right in front of me. It’s really breaking my heart that people don’t even try to meet me. Hello, I’m a handsome fella! I’ve already spent a month here, and while the volunteers are really great, I’d really like to go to a new comfy home already. Warden Delgado got me to come out of my cage and play in the yard on Saturday. I really loved it. Please find it in your heart to at least come meet me. I’m getting tired of all these people talking about lotteries for the small dogs! I’m ready to go home!! Pick me, me, me!!!

Rosebud & Butterball Beagles Adult Females - BONDED! Need your help! They are both 8-10 years old. We do not want them to spend their golden years cooped up in a shelter! Both very friendly. Found abandoned in the middle of a rural road most likely thrown away because they are “too old”. They still have so much love to give.
