Adoptable dogs

All dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm negative, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines unless otherwise noted. Home visits and meet and greets with other animals in the home are required prior to adoption. Placement of animals is not first come first serve, but is determined by who we believe will be the best fit both for the animal and their new family.

Luke use.png


This little guy, Luke, is a snuggler! He had a tough start to his life not loved and obvious abused (still a little skittish with loud sounds) but is eager to please and thrives on love, attention and positive reinforcement. "Good boy" with hand clapping brings a whole new energy out of him! He gets attached very easy and needs his forever home! Loves kids, loves to play with other dogs and ignores cats. Who wants to love this boy forever? Please share this handsome boy! Please put in an application at

Echo use.png


Echo aka Mave is new to the Flint City Pits family, previously a GCAC dog! He is currently decompressing and learning how to trust again with his wonderful foster dad and his service dog. He is good with dogs with proper introduction, not sure on cats yet. Will update with info. This special boy wants someone who will have time to give as he LOVES to be close with his person. Please put in an application at



Everyone meet Chance aka Iceman, a previous GCAC dog! He is about 3 years old, loves snuggling, long walks on the beach and is looking for the perfect match to spend the rest of his life with. He is housebroken and will either tap you with this paw or bark to go outside. Chance will proudly sit and offer you his paw to shake and lie down on command. Loves fetch and walks pretty well on a leash. He loves the dogs and the cat he is living with, however proper intro is a MUST. Poor Chance is terrified of being left alone to the point where he is destructive, so this boy comes with an industrial-size crate that is no match for him. His amazing Foster family is working on teaching him that the crate is his safe place and he is starting to go in willingly. He needs a family that's going to put the time in to show him he will never be abandoned again. A little work and understanding and this guy is as good as they get! A huge thank you to every involved with getting him into such a great foster home! He still has some decompressing and learning to do but if you are interested please put in an application at

Sundance is three to four years old, about 50 lbs, and he is a very calm and cuddly couch potato. He does play with dog friends, though he's pretty lazy about it.  He has no interest in cats (he lives with foster kitties.) He will make someone a very happy forever friend. He has lovely gray spots. He is a Detroit Tigers fan.

Leela Use 2.png


From Leela's foster mama: 
This little girl is amazing she is so sweet. Leela is great with my other dogs and is interested in the kitties but just wants to sniff them. She has met kids and did wonderful. She gets the most adorable wiggles when I come home and the zoomies in the yard. She has manners but is working on learning her basic commands but is doing awesome! Great on the leash and just all around amazing. She can't wait to go to her forever home even though we will miss her terribly ❤️ She enjoys hip hop music and break dancing.

Kimber Use.png


Kimber is great with kids and other dogs. We're guessing she's a german shepherd/basenji mix She is about a year old and full of energy. She loves to play, and will make a great addition to any active family. Her father is Peter Rabbit.

Lacey Use.png


Lacey was picked up as a stray when we got a call that there was a dog in traffic near two major freeways. One of our board members rushed out and found her. She has since found a fantastic foster home, and has an incredibly sweet personality. She critiques art in her spare time.

Katie Mae

Katie Mae almost didn't make it out of the shelter. She was so scared and shut down she was going to have a hard time being considered adoptable. An employee helped Katie start to learn to trust people again, and she has since found an awesome foster mom where she is putting on some much needed weight. She is playful with other dogs and very sweet. She has her martinis shaken, not stirred.

Mike E Use.png

Mike E

This low rider went viral on Facebook after we received a call from the police for help. This wonderful guy was covered with fleas and flea bites. We took him to West Flint Veterinary Hospital and now he is a happy, itch free guy. The vet said that he's either been chewing wood or rocks - his teeth are a little rough. He weighs 50 lbs., is about 3-4 years old, and we're guessing him to be a cross between a lab and a bulldog. He is good with kids, cats and other dogs. He doesn't even bother chickens. He is silent in a cage. He will be neutered soon. His favorite show is "Breaking Bad".



Princess is a sweetheart! She is a low energy girl who enjoys cuddling on the couch, belly rubs, and rolling around in the yard. She is quiet in her crate at night and freely goes in and out during the day. She has not chewed anything in her foster's home except for her toys. She gets a little scared of loud noises and sudden movements so a quieter, low energy home would be best for her. She is good with other dogs. She is a people dog and likes to be where her people are. She wears a tiara and loves Disney movies.




Chisel is an eight months old brindle pitbull. He is fixed, good with kids, other dogs and cats. He is house trained and crate trained. He has a brother named Bosco. He claims to have seen a UFO.



Bosco is an eight months old tan and white pitbull. He is fixed, good with kids, other dogs and cats. He is house trained and crate trained. He has a brother named Chisel. He enjoys a good snipe hunt.






Steph spent over four months at animal control before coming to stay with her foster family, who absolutely love her. She is super playful, but loves to cuddle, gets along with all her doggie friends, but would prefer a home with no cats. She is about 50 pounds and about 5 years old. She is also completely house trained. Steph loves car rides and long walks on the beach. Everyone who meets her loves her, and we’re confident you will too!



Vega is the sweetest, most loving dog you could ask for. She gets along well with kids and cats. She has been attacked by other dogs in the past, before coming into our care, so is not a fan of most dogs - it would take a very slow introduction if there are other dogs in the house, which we would help with. Vega loves car rides, squeaky toys and vanilla ice cream. She hates talking about politics.



Look at those ears! Everyone meet Denny. This adorable guy came to the shelter smelling like a skunk and scared to walk on the floor. He's made tremendous progress and doesn't stink anymore but is still a little shy. Thanks to his new Foster Mama, Beth, he will soon realize how spoiled he's going to be. Wants to know the answer to "Who's a good boy?" (He's sure it's him.)



This is Talisha. She's had a rough hand dealt to her in her short life--she's heartworm positive, and needs surgery on one of her legs. Thanks to a group effort--fundraising by Cheri Martin, support from Amy Warner and Genesee County Animal Control, and a dedicated foster, she now has a happy future to look forward to. She's about a year and a half, and a super playful, friendly, happy little dog, weighing in just over 40 pounds. She does have a high prey drive, so a cat free home will be best for her once she's ready for adoption. Enjoys sleeping in and soap operas.


Eva is about 3 years old, fixed,and up to date on shots. She was very scared at the shelter, and her foster mom has done wonders for building up her confidence. She walks great on a leash, and her ideal home would include older kids and smaller dogs for friends. She also loves America.



Kitty is our first feral dog experience. She is only about a year an a half old, and weighs about 40 pounds. She came to us in November of 2016 underweight and terrified. We had to carry her outside during her first week with us. She has made dramatic improvements since then, but we are still working on building up her confidence with people. She absolutely loves her doggie friends and gets along with cats well too. Aside from her shyness, she is otherwise in great health, and will be available for adoption soon. Don't mention her underbite - she's sensitive about it.
