Princess Leia

Female - Mastiff - 1.5 years old

Meet our brindle beauty! Princess Leia is a 1½ year old mastiff. Leia arrived to us from another shelter where she was sick and at risk for euthanasia. She has recovered from her sickness and is loving all of the attention from our volunteers. She is super fun, playful, and puppylike. Leia has a great personality and walks nicely on the leash too! She is gaining some much needed weight with lots of yummy pancakes and scrambled eggs. 


Female - Lab/Whippet mix - 6 years old

Rhubarb arrived to us in pretty rough condition. This girl has been through a lot…she was attacked by another dog and had multiple bite wounds, she was hit by a car, and she was born with a missing limb. Rhubarb got some much needed TLC from the Sanctuary volunteers and she is now thriving as our office dog. She will need an adopter who understands skittish and nervous dogs. Once she warms up to you, she gives the best kisses, she is superrrrr snuggly, and she has lots of energy.


She must got to a home with a physical fenced yard.


Female - Pit mix - 6 years old

Rosa is a recent arrival from a high kill shelter in Philly. She was just hours away from being euthanized. Luckily we were able to scoop her up! She is super friendly and lovable. She weighs around 46 lbs. She loves to play with squeaky balls and hang out in the yard with our volunteers.

Male - Shepherd mix - 1 year old

Royce came to us a recent stray who was sadly never claimed. He was found with who we believe to be his mom, Porsche. Royce is very playful with Porsche.  Royce would do best with an experienced adopter to help him build confidence. When he came to us he was very nervous and scared. However he has come so far in the few weeks that he has been with us. He weighs around 52 lbs.

Female - Pit mix - 3 years old

Sierra is hoping to be on Santa’s nice list this year. She is 10/10 the goodest girl. Sierra was lucky enough to have a sleepover with one of our volunteers and she has wonderful things to say about her. She says…”She literally was never more than 2 feet away from me and stares at you like you’re the only person in the whole world “ She was so lovable and playful and so great on the leash. She is very happy go lucky and great in the car. She was the perfect houseguest and had no accidents in the house! Sierra would make a wonderful addition to any family.

Female - Pit mix - 5 years old

Riley was abandoned on a busy road and sadly never claimed. She is still nervous at the shelter but she warms up quickly and loves belly rubs. Riley loves to snuggle on her big bed and get attention. She is enjoying her walks at the shelter but she is strong on the leash. She really loves her people once she's given the time to get to know you and we have no doubt that she will make a fabulous addition and be someone's best friend.

Female - Pit mix - 3 years old

Zinnia was abandoned at a local park. Her former family tossed the ball, and as she was chasing it, they drove off without her. She hasn’t given up hope on people, despite being dumped. Zinnia is looking for her forever family! She loves pets and attention! She is one of our best walkers, and she loves to be outside. She has quickly become a volunteer favorite! She loves other things a little too much at times like toys and bones. We are looking for a patient family to work on her “love of things”, otherwise known as resource guarding. We believe it can be worked on as it seemed to develop in the shelter’s stressful environment.


Female - Pit mix - 4 years old

Lula has been with us almost 3 years now and it's time for her to be in a home! She weighs around 55 lbs. She is shy but sweet and needs time to warm up to new people. Her ideal family is active and dog-savvy. We’d love to find a family to foster her while we work on her training. She is super smart and quick to learn.
