Kara, the Pit Stops book tour ambassador, was originally taken in by a volunteer/foster from Lancaster Animal Shelter as a pregnant stray. After all her puppies were adopted, she was brought into long-term foster care by Kyle Harris of Canyon Country, who adopted Kara after the “Pit Stops” tour ended.

Kara is now a Canine Good Citizen and in training to become a therapy dog. Once Kara receives that certification, she will become part of the R.E.A.D. program for kids, making her the first pit bull in the Santa Clarita Valley to do so.
