Meet Tippa! This sweet lady came to us from our friends at Bissell/Animal Rescue Corps. Tippa was a bit shy when she first arrived at our shelter, but since then she's really opened up to reveal a big sweetheart! She's been on a few trips out of the shelter, and despite her past, she seems very eager to explore the world around her and meet new people. However, due to her history, we are requiring that all human and canine residents in the home meet Tippa, just to make absolutely sure everyone gets along. Please note that Tippa's teeth were in bad shape when she got here; she already received the necessary dental procedure, but this will be an additional medical fee. Luckily, though, her adoption fee has been waived, and we did receive a donation to help cover some of her medical fee! If you would like to meet Tippa or have more questions, please speak with our kennel staff who will be happy to help!
