Jimmy is a 9-year-old pit bull mix. He’s deaf and has joint pain, anxiety, and skin allergies. While he is 80 lbs. of doggie love, he’d been waiting more than a year for his forever home. By offering to cover the cost of his medications (which were fairly expensive) and providing enrichment items, we were able to find just the right adopter for Jimmy! Jimmy was finally adopted in early November 2021.
