Muffin’s Pet Connection: Week of September 6

WOOF WOOF: EMERGENCY…My Iscis, a very friendly, three-year old, mush face pit mix, is great with kids and people and is literally a house dog; she does not go out. I have four kids and she has been with them since she was six weeks old.

“I would love to keep her, but I live in housing and was sent to court for breach of my lease; no Pits or dogs over 20 pounds are allowed in the building. I have been looking for a home for weeks. I am pregnant, there is not much traveling I can do with her.

“Non-kill shelters are all full; her time is running out. I have until Tuesday to find a home for her or I will be in jeopardy of losing my apartment. Is there any help you can give me? Please call Jennifer at 347-259-7803. Thank you very much.
