Shelter Pet of the Week: Meet Bonita

LongIsland.com

Bonita is a young mutt from Save-a-Pet who was rescued as a puppy from a high kill rate shelter who has been repeatedly overlooked, and is now looking for her chance to shine.

Bonita is a three year old pit bull mix at Save-a-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center who had a tough start at life, but is looking forward to becoming part of a forever home that will promise her hours of play and a warm bed.

When Bonita was a puppy, she was brought to a high-kill shelter – shelters which receive so many animals that they frequently euthanize healthy dogs and cats, often through outdated and inhumane measures like using a gas chamber.  Fortunately, she was rescued by Save-a-Pet, and though the staff and volunteers love her, they agree that she has been at the shelter far too long.

Bonita is a very happy dog who loves to go for walks and jogs, and she is a favorite among the volunteers who walk dogs at the shelter.  She dreams of being with a family that would have a yard for her to exercise in, and an owner who would take her as company on their jogging route around the neighborhood.

Bonita would do best in a home with older children with her to romp with, and to also teach her new commands.  She truly loves being with people, and she deserves to finally have a family that will take her in and give her a lifetime of affection.

This young girl is already housetrained, spayed, and up-to-date with all of her routine shots.

If you are interested in adopting Bonita or another dog or cat at Save-a-Pet Animal Rescue, call (631) 473-6333, or fill out their online application.
