Quick note: the shelter wants to remind everyone about their $5 Feline Friday special. All cats and kittens have a $5 adoption fee every Friday from now through Thanksgiving.
Now…let’s take a look at Dirk.
Dirk is a 40 pound, 9 month old, American Pit Bull Terrier mix. He is described as being very polite and can be a bit on the shy side. He loves playing with other dogs and is good with some of the shelter’s more shy, under-socialized pups. Dirk would like to live with an active family who can keep him busy and give him lots of positive experiences. Daily walks or jogs would be good for him since he is a young, athletic breed. Dirk is a sweet boy who would fit well in many homes.
Dirk’s adoption fee is listed at $150. He is up-to-date on all of his shots, and has been neutered and micro-chipped. Adoption fees go right back into the shelter to help care for animals continuing to wait for their new homes.

More about CHA Animal Shelter:
CHA Animal Shelter is a nonprofit animal shelter in northeast Columbus, Ohio (3765 Corporate Drive). CHA is funded solely by donations from adoption fees, donations from the public, and various other fundraising efforts. Their mission is to serve the people and animals of Central Ohio by providing safe, temporary shelter and care for abandoned or otherwise homeless cats and dogs, and to reduce pet overpopulation by means of spay and neuter, education, and community outreach. They have been fulfilling that mission since 1975.
Adoption fees are designed to help offset a portion of the cost of food, shelter, and medical care for each rescued animal. (jj)
