Adopt a pit bull, get $250 in training

Sammie’s Friends has several endearing pit bull terriers looking for forever homes.

The nonprofit dog rescue group based in Nevada City is helping these canines by offering $250 in behavioral training to adoptive humans. Pit bulls face a challenge because of a negative image, owners who are moving into small apartments because of the economy – and because some people haven’t met that special pit bull yet.

For more information, call the Sammie’s Friends shelter at (530) 471-5041.

To support Sammie’s Friends, the Alternative Fitness Center of Penn Valley is hosting a Zumba dance party fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, at Western Gateway Park Pavilion Stage in Penn Valley.

Zumba instructors from Grass Valley, Penn Valley and Yuba City will lead the dance party. Participation is free.

For more information, call the Alternative Fitness Center at 432-8985. If you are interested in being an instructor for this event, e-mail
