Shelter Dog Lost Her Owner and Now Needs a New Home [PHOTOS]

Gina is a very smart dog. She knows how to sit, shake, lay down and walks great on a leash. She is house-trained too! Gina is spayed and I believe she may have a micro-chip as well. She has been the faithful companion of her owner for 6 years but he recently passed away. Now Gina finds herself at the shelter where she is confused and sad. Her owner's family could not properly care for her. She was covered in fleas and has lost some hair because of it. She scratched so much that it was hard to get many good photos. A good bath and a little love is all that Gina needs.
Gina Knows How To Sit, Shake & Lay Down!
When you adopt ANY of our featured pets, you will receive a FREE wellness package from Pleasant Grove Animal Hospital (PGAH) valued at $80.
With the Wellness Package you will be able to gain a lot of information from the fine folks at PGAH. They can answer all of your questions on care and which products will be best for Gina. They will also give Gina a very thorough exam. PGAH is like your favorite family doctor, for your FURkids.
Adoption fees at the animal shelter vary from $40 to $144, depending on the size, gender, animal and whether or not they were spayed or neutered when they came into the shelter. Since Gina is already spayed, the adoption fee for her is only $40.
Something else that you should consider is micro-chipping your pet. It is only $20 through the shelter and gives you peace of mind to know if your dog or cat get picked up by the shelter or taken to a vet, they will be returned to you quickly.
