Us Scary?!?!?!

While October is often celebrated with scary costumes and horror movie marathons, this month the Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center is celebrating something no one needs to fear.


In recognition of National Pit Bull Awareness Month, the animal shelter is offering a $25 discount on all pit bull adoptions through the end of the month. And if you have questions about this often misunderstood breed, you don’t want to miss the shelter’s Pit Bulls Aren’t Spooky Open House on Saturday, Oct. 26, from noon to 5:00 p.m.


Dog trainers will be on hand at the open house to answer any training or behavioral questions attendees may have. Many people do not know that pit bulls who are raised responsibly are highly affectionate and obedient dogs with a calm temperament.


Halloween pet photos can also be taken at the event for a $5 donation. Some costumes will be available. And attendees can enjoy light refreshments during this fun, informative event.




Meet Snow


I was turned in because I wasn’t getting along with the male dog in the house anymore….come to find out it’s because he got me pregnant! I had 11 beautiful puppies while here at the shelter and they are finally old enough to go out on their own, and now I am looking for my forever home. I would probably do best as an only dog until my hormones calm down a little, but I am good with kids!
