I often hear people asking “How much does it cost to adopt a dog?” and I know they are speaking of the actual cost for the dog. But people should always keep in mind that not all abandoned dogs are problematic dogs. You’ll also have a much better idea of what sort of grooming requirements you’ll have to deal with, what your dog’s energy level is, how they get along with other animals, how they react to strangers, how well they travel in the car, etc.
Fiona is a animal lover, dog owner & rescuer, horse owner and great Pilates instructor. On the other hand, if you set out to buy a dog from a pet shop, the prices would begin at $300 and can go as high as $1600 for some special breed dogs. They’ve seen so many animals surrendered – the last thing they want is for one of their own to end up back at a shelter.
We advocate an end to the operation of puppy mills, pet store animal sales, and the neglect and abuse of these precious dogs. There are a number of possible reasons for dog adoption. For your family, you have the satisfaction of knowing you have given a dog a good home as well as gaining a loving family pet.
If you are interested in adopting one of our puppies Saturday, please stop by the event. Most of the shelters have websites where you can see pictures and information about the animals that are available for adoption which then would save your time in finding the pet you have in mind.
Bullies in Need has fostered great relationships with shelters and we truly believe that the animal control, shelter staff and volunteers are the heart and soul behind saving the abandoned animals that our society leaves behind. We are not only a pet adoption service – we are a Sanctuary.
