My name is Otto, I am a 5-year old Pit Mix. My foster mom says I am the sweetest man. I love to cuddle and sit/lay in moms lap. I enjoy fetch and playing with my stuffed toys, especially the squeaky ones. I carry them around to show everyone. I was brought in when I was sick and my family couldn’t do surgery. I had ulcers all over my mouth and they think I ate something caustic like a battery. I’m finally feeling better a few months after surgery but I am left with Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD). My condition is controlled with a prescription diet, and I love my special food-even as treats. I am not a fan of my current four-legged brothers and sisters, so I would really like to be the only animal in the house- I get jealous easily and love my humans attention. I love all humans, big and small, and would love all the attention I can get. I even do great with kids!!

Adoption Policy:

  • Complete an adoption application and submit it. You will receive an onscreen confirmation we received it.
  • Once your application is initially reviewed, we then contact your veterinarian and references. After that, a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • Because this is a life time commitment, once you meet the foster dog, there is a 24 hour waiting period for you to make sure that the fit is right for everyone. So many people see a cute face and want to take them home right away without really thinking about it. The waiting period also allows you to get supplies ready for your new one.
  • We do not ship dogs within or out of the state.


  • Puppy and Adult dog adoption fees are variable.
