Featured Pet: Earl Pitt’s America 

Meet Earl Pitts America! This uniquely named puppy is the life of the party, and loves all his Canine buddies! Earl just made his way to us from another shelter in the south, and he's already making lots of new friends at our shelter. He hasn't lived with cats or kids before, but Earl has yet to meet someone he hasn't been excited to say hello to!
