PHOENIX -- A young pit bull that was rescued earlier this summer after suffering third-degree sunburns is now up for adoption.

Aurora has gone through weeks of treatment and spent eight weeks living in foster care, but is now ready for a permanent family.

The Arizona Humane Society took the 1-year-old in after she was discovered walking around the southwest Valley back in June.

Parts of Aurora’s hair will never grow back, but she’s an otherwise healthy dog.

Anyone interested in adopting Aurora can call the Arizona Humane Society at 602-997-7586 ext. 2045 to speak with an adoption counselor and set up a time to meet Aurora.

The Arizona Humane Society would also like to remind everyone of their ongoing Primp Your Pit promotion. For just $20, pit bull owners can have their dog spayed or neutered.
