Have you been #KissedbyaPit? The new campaign raising awareness of amazing, sweet, adoptable Pit Bulls – we are sharing many that are available for adoption! We are accepting #KissedbyaPit pictures of adoptable pit bulls from area shelters on Long Island, Brooklyn and Queens!  All you have to do is click here to submit them.  See all the amazing kiss-a-bull pitties waiting for homes here on LI – and please share!

Apple is Paws Unite People’s favorite Princess. She is a 4 year old AmBully, and her mission in life is to just make you happy. We pulled her from a local shelter and she is waiting for a home. She’s currently in a foster home with a cat, adores all size people, & is ok with dogs smaller than her. (big dogs scare her, as she was hurt by one) Why not make our favorite princess a member of your castle? After all… every princess deserves their happy ending. For more information on how to adopt this sweetie, email Adoptions@pawsunitepeople.com or call (516) 721-2552.

Juma is a 5 year old pit bull who was very shy and has a very funny submissive smile! She could use a home that will give her the patience and love she needs to grow in to the best dog she has the potential of becoming. Juma has come a long way here at our shelter. With the help of volunteers like Anastasia, and our staff, she is learning that people are kind and kinda cool!
The Southampton Animal Shelter is located in Red Creek Park in Hampton Bays and we are open 7 days a week. Stop by or call (631) 728-7387 to find out more about Juma!

Titus, a rescue who is living the life now of doggie bliss, (of Titus and his girl Hailey), is a kissing fool. He raises money for rescue by sharing his loving kisses with anyone who wants to be kissed by a pit! Titus’s human mom is with Tuff Tails who help locally by pulling dogs from area shelters on Long Island.

Honey and her foster mom Anna are in love :) Her 4-legged foster sister Brooklyn is also in love aww!! Honey is a small pittie mix who was rescued from a bad situation. She is sort of shy and needed someone to help her know what it’s like to be just a dog. She is about 2 years old, spayed and up to date with vaccines. We were thrilled to pull this girl out of the shelter and into the loving arms of her fosters. Please email info@tufftails.org to learn more about fostering it saves lives thank you!! xo

This sweet female pit mix is about a year and a half old. We haven’t been able to decide on a good enough name for her yet. She is super sweet and is all about snuggling. She loves cuddles and kisses. She’s a little shy when it comes to playtime, but she’s slowing learning how to play and how much fun toys can be. She would be a great family dog, she just needs a high-fenced yard, because she can jump! Meet this girl today and give her the home she deserves! (Also at Islip Animal Shelter!)
