Our Featured Pet
Hi, My name is Lucy and I am a 1 to 2-year-old blue-nosed Pit Bull mix. I am a sweet girl weighing in at 43 pounds. I was found as a stray in Philadelphia and taken to a high kill shelter, but that was the best thing that ever happened to me! I was cold and had frost bite on my ears and tail, and I had no hair in spots from sleeping or laying on concrete all the time. I was very very hungry and now the nice people at Home at Last saved me and are giving me plenty of food and warmth and love. When I first came to my foster mommy’s home, I didn't really know how to behave, but I catch on quickly and have already learned how to "sit" and "lie down" and we are working on “off”. I take treats from your hand nicely - just check out my video on Petfinder at: https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/31182297/. My foster mom says I should not be placed with any cats or small dogs under 25 pounds. But I do love to play with dogs especially the larger ones! I walk well on an extension leash but not so great on a short leash and for that reason she thinks I may do best in a secure fenced yard. Or someone could maybe teach me how “not to pull” on a leash?, I am crate trained and house trained. I currently live with older kids (10 years old) who I just love, but younger children are not recommended especially while I am still learning my boundaries. My mommy thinks I am too strong and will knock them over. She also says I make her laugh because I like to toss my toys up in the air and try to catch them . When the toy bounces off my nose, I rush to scoop it up and toss it again. Did I tell you I catch on quickly? I am spayed and up to date on my shots and would love to meet you. If you are looking for a snuggle bunny and loyal companion, I am your girl. Won’t you apply to adopt me today?
Please read our adoption information if you’re interested in adding Lucy to your family.
We regularly hold Meet & Greet events throughout each month. This is a chance for you to come out and meet our adoptable dogs and fill out an application to adopt or foster. The times and locations are always available on the left side at the top of this page, so be sure to check there frequently to see where we’ll be!
Please note that not all of our dogs attend each Meet & Greet. If you are planning on coming out to see a particular dog, it is best to check our Facebook page the morning of the event to view the list of dogs scheduled to be attending.
As a growing rescue group, we are in constant need of volunteers who can assist us in saving dogs. If you are able to provide a foster home for dogs until they are adopted, please e-mail us for more information. Fostering is such a rewarding experience and is vital to our goal of placing rescued dogs into new permanent homes.
Think that buying a puppy from a pet store isn’t such a big deal? THINK AGAIN.
That cute little puppy you want to buy is from a puppy mill and yes, pet stores WILL and DO lie to you and will tell you whatever you want to hear to make the sale. It happens ALL of the time! In buying a puppy, you’re helping to keep puppy mills in business. Don’t believe me? Educate yourself.
