Adopted! Pet of the Week: Lola

Adopted! Pet of the Week: Lola

Update: Lola is with a loving family in her forever home!

Lola is a 4-year-old spayed female, tan and black American Staffordshire Terrier. "She came to us as an owner surrender because they had a brand new, itty bitty baby," said Niki Gottesman, adoption manager with the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

"And it's a real fallacy that you can't have a baby and keep your dog," Gottesman continued. "We have wonderful information to help you through that process. There's great books out there, so if you do all the right things while you're pregnant, before you have the baby, there's no reason why you can't keep your dog."

Lola would do well in a loving family with older children she can play with. She has a nice short coat that is easy to keep. Regular baths will help her look and feel her best, and don't forget the flea and heartworm preventative!

She's up for adoption at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. If you adopt Lola, her initial exam is free complements of our Pet Connections Sponsors:

About Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is a limited-access humane society and provides services to more than 7,000 cats, dogs, puppies and kittens each year. Operating continuously since 1925, we have been positively impacting animal welfare and addressing overpopulation in Palm Beach County through a variety of services.

Through the adoption and spay/neuter programs, our vision is to ensure that there are no homeless animals and every animal has a home in Palm Beach County.

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Humane Society of the Palm Beaches, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, receiving no state or federal funding. It is dependent exclusively upon private donations, grants, bequests and fundraising events to provide quality programs and services to the community. Your donations directly support the services and programs in place to help animals in need.

Our mission is to provide shelter to lost, homeless and unwanted animals; to furnish medical and other services for the care of companion animals; to care for, protect, and find quality homes for homeless and neglected animals; to advocate animal welfare, community involvement and education to further the bond between people and animals, for the mutual benefit of both.
