Pepe, a pit bull, was one of these long-term residents at the Pennsylvania SPCA, where he spent over 300 days waiting for someone to give him a chance.

Despite the staff’s dedicated efforts to rehabilitate Pepe and prepare him for adoption, his pit bull appearance often deterred potential adopters.

However, the shelter persisted, and Pepe’s story and photos were shared on social media to find him a loving home.
