January is #UnchainaDogMonth ⛓and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is encouraging people to allow their best friends inside 🏠 , where they are safest and happiest. In addition, cold weather 🥶 can mean frostbite, exposure, and dehydration when water sources freeze.

If you know someone with an outside dog, offer to play with the dog and take him or her for walks. Bring treats or toys, if it's okay with the dog's owner. Make sure that he/she has adequate food, water, and shelter—as required by law—and report neglect to authorities.

In search of a new hunny, this holiday season? 😍Heni would love to keep you warm on those cold, winter nights. Make him yours this holiday season!

Heni is a 2 1/2yr old meathead! He is still very much a puppy and seems fine with everything he meets. He especially loves children. He is housebroken and cratetrained.

MAX!!!! This dog is so handsome and has the most inquisitive expressions! He's about two years old, and weighs just under 60 pounds. Still a young dog with lots of energy, he'll really enjoy an adopter who can take him on lots of walks! He was brought to us when his owners could no longer keep him, and they had lots of good things to say about him: he's lived with kids and liked them, is house trained and crate trained, not destructive, doesn't like toys except he does like bones, doesn't dig in the backyard nor does he try to escape a fenced yard, and is a good doorbell (meaning he'll bark when someone is at the door!). Max is allergic to seafood so avoid that! And despite his larger frame, he thinks he's a lapdog... his previous family said Max "will try to Army crawl onto the couch to see how far he can get, although he is not usually allowed on the furniture." Maybe his new adopters will get him a big comfy dog bed... although he may still prefer the couch! Max will happily greet you when you come home from work or being out. Now who wouldn't want this big sweet squish of a dog to come home to?!? Come visit him tomorrow when we open at noon!

DMV local, WWE wrestler and Guardians of the Galaxy star 🎬 Dave Bautista (Batista) just rescued not one but TWO abandoned pit bulls 🐾. The 6 year old 🐮 colored pits, Maggie and Ollie, were being housed separately at the shelter after being together their whole lives 😭. Volunteers at Rescue Me Tampa weren't having it and started a social media campaign to keep these sweet pups together. Within a week Dave Bautista swooped in and saved the day! He promises to make sure the rest of their lives are filled with lots of love (and spoiling!). 💜 #davebautista #adoptdontshop #pitsandcelebrities #cowpits #drax

Cold Weather Safety Tips

Brrrrr 🥶 Is your pet winter weather ready?? 🐾❄️ #aspca #coldweathertips #protectthepaws

Exposure to winter’s dry, cold air and chilly rain, sleet and snow can cause chapped paws and itchy, flaking skin, but these aren’t the only discomforts pets can suffer. To help prevent cold weather dangers from affecting your pet’s health, please heed this advice from our experts.

thank you very much
Ambassador Pit bull rescue Do you have a phone number where you’re able to be reached?
I need help for my pit😭
Hi, My boyfriend and I submitted an adoption application for Gigi and included our lease agreement showing no breed or pet restriction as well as contact information for our landlord. We have not received any response from the adoption coordinator despite our efforts in trying to facilitate the adoption process and multiple follow up emails to get in touch with the adoption team. We would like to know if this is how you normally operate. I understand this organization is volunteer based, however, a courtesy response would've been appreciated or update on the status of our application.
I just got a message from Wisdom Panel that Gigi’s results are in....I haven’t looked at them yet...anyone care to take a guess at what it says?!?
Shout out to Audreona Nelson and her husband for helping out today with Improving Gigi’s response to people approaching the fence in my backyard and socializing her. She loved their visit but from the look on My Petey’s face in a few of the pictures, he may have even loved it more. 🤣
