Field Trip & Sleep Over Eligible Dogs

Camille has decided that she is just not the “long term fostering type”.  She prefers to venture out daily on as many day trips to your home to watch tv, lounge in the sun and take short leash walks as we can set up for her.  Camille is under treatment for heart worm and cannot partake in off leash play but LOVES to play with busy bones and toys– just not here in the shelter.

Camille is a 2 year old Pitt Bull mix
