EUGENE, Ore. – Jelly is a 10-year-old terrier pit bull mix looking for a family that will play with her and take her on walks every day.
She is a happy, friendly dog with a good energy level for her age. Jelly loves getting attention and her new family should be ready to spend plenty of time with her. She must be the only pet in the home, and can go to a family with dog-savvy older kids.
Jelly arrived at First Avenue Shelter on May 8, when her owner could no longer care for her. She weighs 48 pounds and her adoption fee is $85. This fee includes the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.
Jelly visited KEZI 9 News on Tuesday as Pet of the Week. Every Tuesday, KEZI showcases homeless pets on the Midday newscast at 11 a.m. If you are interested in Jelly or other animals at First Avenue Shelter or Greenhill Humane Society, click here.
