Happy (belated) Pit Bull Appreciation Day

I’m a list/process queen. I use project management software to keep my personal life organized and I’m composing this post in my notebook where I keep shorter lists to remind me of my daily tasks. Why do I do all this? Because if I don’t, I get it in my head that National Pit Bull Awareness Day is October 28th when it’s really October 25th. D’oh!

I hope you have all celebrated appropriately. I am spending the day on the couch with my own sweet Pibble.

I also need to catch you up on a few available pups at the Wake County Animal Center (WCAC), as I did miss a couple of days during this month of Pibbles.


WCAC ID: 105253

Tiger was surrendered in late June with her harness embedded in her skin, which caused her skin to get infected. She’s about two years old and still is full of puppiness. Her foster family is teaching her all sorts of cool things like playing appropriately with her foster fur family, good leash manners, and crate training.

“With the good life in my sights, we should meet up because I am spayed and ready to go home with you today!!!”

This little Am Staff is only eight months old and came in with a horrible case of Demodex. Look at the amazing progress she’s made with her foster family in the last 114 days.

She’s a beautiful blue and white Am Staff who is a shy “little” thing at two years old and 80 lbs.

She walks well on a leash and will give you a little nudge for affection. She loves the solace of sitting in the grass with you and being petted.

This sweet little Am Staff has something to say.

“Hi there! Welcome to my world! My name is Katie and as you can see I’m a fairly small brindle female and I’ve been told that I’m cute as a button! I’m already 2 years old so I won’t get any bigger either. My Foster parents love me because I’m small and super friendly.

“I’m typically quiet in my kennel and wait patiently to go out for my daily walks. I am heart-worn positive and will need treatment when adopted, but my heart is as big as they come. I want nothing more than to lay in your lap and soak up all the loving you can dish out.

“I am a dream on a leash and am great with my foster brother and my kitten sister , but proper introductions to new animals are a must, as with any dog. I am a LOVE BUG! I consider myself to be happy-go-lucky as I’m easy going and get along with most everyone. I love being around people and can’t wait to be adopted by a nice family. Please visit me today and see how loving I am!

“Lots of love – Katie”

The WCAC is always full of great animals looking for their furever homes. They are located at 820 Beacon Lake Drive and open daily from noon to 6:00 p.m. You can also check out the adoption gallery to look for your new love.
