The Dearborn Animal Shelter is a great resource for homeless pets—but with the ultimate goal of getting them adopted. That's why the shelter really wants their longest "resident" to find a permanent home.
Emily came to the shelter as a shivering, tiny puppy in January 2012. With help from shelter staff and foster care, she has grown into a wonderful young dog. She loves to play fetch, and is currently learning basic commands in obedience classes.
Now, she just needs someone to adopt her!
This pit bull terrier has excellent house manners, and loves to play with other dogs. She's on the small side at around 35 pounds, and has a sleek black coat.
Please call the shelter at 313-943-2697 to arrange to meet Emily, as she's living in foster care. She is ready to be adopted any day now!

The adoption fee for an adult dog such as Emily is currently $100. Adoption fees include a basic medical exam, behavior assessment, age-appropriate vaccinations, parasite and worm check, spay or neuter, microchip ID, travel box, and pet care information.
Adopters are also eligible for pet insurance from PetFirst HealthCare at an introductory price of $5 for the first month. The price includes accident and illness coverage with any veterinarian. Adopters must register their pet within 20 days of adoption by calling 866-937-PETS, or visiting www.petfirstadoption.com.
