For the month of October, Placer SPCA is reducing adoption fees by 50% for all Pit Bull / Pit Bull mixes. If you are considering adopting a dog into your family, please consider adopting a Pit Bull. A well-bred, well-socialized and well-trained pit bull is one of the most delightful, intelligent and gentle dogs imaginable. In fact, they once held the nickname the "nursemaid's dog," because they were so reliable with young children. Some of the most famous dogs in American history were pit bulls, including Stubby a decorated World War I war hero, among many others.
Today, Pit Bulls work as therapy dogs, visiting nursing homes; as protection or sentry dogs for the police; and U.S. customs dogs, working in narcotics and explosives detection. Some even work in search and rescue, including a trio from Sacramento that worked tirelessly at the World Trade Center during the aftermath of 9/11. The majority are cherished family members, who have become very attached to their people, loving nothing more than cuddling on the couch or sleeping in bed with their pet parents.
All dogs adopted from Placer SPCA have been spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, and tested for heartworm. All adopters receive a voucher for a free veterinary exam.
For more information about Pit Bulls or the programs and services offered by Placer SPCA, please call (916) 782-7722, ext. 200 or (530) 885-7387 ext. 200 or visit www.placerspca.org/PitbullAwareness.
