LebTown features a different Lebanon County pet each Friday to help us enter the weekend with the best vibes possible.
Our Pet of the Week sometimes is a local furbaby who already lives in a happy Lebanon County home. Other times the weekly column will spotlight an animal that’s available for adoption through a local shelter and is seeking a forever family.
This week, meet adoptable Jesse!
Jesse is a pit bull, estimated to be around 5 years old.
“She found her way to the HSLC as a stray in extremely poor condition,” says Danielle, a dog kennel technician at the Humane Society of Lebanon County.
“When she was found, she had a very bad case of dermatitis, she was malnourished, and she needed lots of TLC,” Danielle adds. “Her toenails were so long and curling under, she was furless and sores were oozing. She was hurting on the outside and inside with her sad, defeated and helpless face. In fact, we weren’t sure of Jesse’s future when she first arrived … her prognosis was extremely guarded.”
That all changed once this adorable pibble got the attention she needed.
“Jesse is the sweetest lady and loves everyone she meets!” Danielle says. “She enjoys affection and gives kisses too! She walks well on a leash and is a very chill gal. She would make a great couch potato companion!”
Jesse has attended shelter events and was “an excellent shelter ambassador,” Danielle adds. “Jesse loves snacks, too! She knows sit and to give paw. She would do well with kiddos and would make a great family dog. Canine siblings would be dependent upon a meet and greet.”
The shelter is currently searching for a foster-to-adopt family for Jesse, as she continues treatment for her skin and medical care through the HSLC. If you are interested in fostering or adopting this bundle of love, please fill out the adoption application online at lebanonhumane.org or call the Humane Society at 717-628-1369 for more information.
“We are looking for an amazing family who will give Jesse continued care and love to heal and thrive,” Danielle says, “understanding of her unknown past, consistency and most of all, unconditional love. Please help us find this precious soul her new beginning.”
