Elmbrook Humane Society to host meet and greet for abused pit bull

April 18, 2013

Elmbrook Humane Society invites the community to visit a special guest at the shelter Friday.

Canyon is an 18-month-old pit bull from an abuse and neglect case in the Chicago area.

Save Humane Chicago, a non-profit organization that helps court case dogs, transferred the puppy to EBHS on April 12.

EBHS will host a Meet and Greet for Canyon at the shelter, 20950 Enterprise Ave., Friday from 3 to 4 p.m.

Visitors can sit and snuggle with Canyon, attention she hasn't received in months while being held at Chicago's animal control.

Employees will answer questions about court case dogs, pit bulls, and adopting an animal.

"EBHS' goal with Canyon is to show the community that court case dogs, specifically pit bulls, can be wonderful pets for individuals and families," said Rachel Coolbroth, director of community relations and development at EBHS. "We want to make sure that Canyon receives plenty of extra love and attention because her life has already been hard enough."

Canyon is scheduled to be available for adoption at EBHS April 21.

Those interested in adopting Canyon should check www.ebhs.org for more information on when she will become available, Coolbroth said.

The Elmbrook Humane Society is the only no-kill animal shelter in Waukesha County, serving the community since 1964.
