Kiya Koda in Indianola wants families to adopt smart during holidays

By haziqbinarif

Penny, a perky and playful American Pitbull Terrier, has lived at the Kiya Koda Humane Society in Indianola for nearly two years after being rescued and rehabilitated by the shelter.

Julie Skellenger, manager at Kiya Koda, said Penny was used for breeding before coming to the shelter. When she arrived and was spayed, they discovered her body injured because she birthed so many puppies.

She said it’s a shame Penny hasn’t been adopted yet, but she, like the 100 other animals in the shelter, needs a home.

Penny the American Pitbull Terrier has been at Kiya Koda Humane Society in Indianola for nearly two years. The website describes her as a dog who loves people and is the sweetest dog. She would be best in a home without other dogs or small children because she is very strong, Dec. 21, 2020.

Skellenger said Penny would do great in a home where she won’t come into contact with other dogs because of aggression issues, which is ultimately what has kept her at the shelter so long. She said Penny is a very sweet dog towards humans.

While Penny is the only adoptable dog at Kiya Koda currently, she is joined by an estimated 96 cats and around three dogs that the shelter cares for. The shelter is nearing its capacity for cats because it is only able to hold 100 cats, 20 large dogs and 10 small dogs.
