As an Indiana resident, it’s hard to know exactly when the snow will end, but we can rejoice in the fact that it is technically spring anyway! I cannot think of a better way to celebrate the turn of the season than with a new best friend. Until April 30th, the Humane Society of Elkhart county is having an adoption special where all of their pitbulls over six months of age are only $25.
Bad time for a new family member, but love to be around animals? The HSEC is hiring and offers great benefits to full time employees. This might be a great opportunity to secure a job for the summer.
Onto this week’s adoptable pets!
Meet Angus, a big-hearted four-year-old Pitbull and Boxer mix. Angus does not always get along with other dogs and cats, so he is looking for a family who will give all their love and attention to him. Additionally, like myself, Angus is often frightened by men that he does not know. A family that is willing to be patient and gentle with him is a must. Beyond that, this guy loves to play fetch, run around with his friends (you), and chew on new toys.
Any big dog lovers are not going to want to miss out on sweet Paige. This girl is a lovely six-year-old Cane Corso mix who is eagerly awaiting her forever family. Sometimes, she can feel nervous around loud noises and during car rides. However, Paige loves to go on walks, play with new toys, and spend quiet time cuddling with her favorite people. As a senior, Paige’s adoption fees are waived. Schedule a visit – she would love to meet you!
Stark is an active pup looking for someone to join in on his shenanigans. He is a two-and-a-half-year-old Pitbull mix with a heart of gold. Stark really enjoys outside time with HSEC volunteers, and would love to have a home with a big yard for him to romp around in. He is on the larger side at about 70 pounds, but he’s friendly with everyone he meets: and you could be next in line!
