ZETA Design is a proud sponsor of Adopt a Dog with Monikas Doggie Rescue -. Ours have included owners who have separated and are no longer in a position to keep their dog, older dogs whose owners can no longer afford vets’ bills, families who have a child with asthma who cannot tolerate the dog’s hair, puppies who become too boisterous and need more attention than their owners can give them, and – in the case of greyhounds – dogs who have just outlived their usefulness.
They re-wrote her bio on their website to say she came from a high kill shelter (she did not; my husband found her abandoned on a vacant lot) and they said she was friendly, got along well with other dogs, and did not have a prey drive and would probably get along with cats.
Sometimes pet owners take on pet ownership before they are ready, without proper circumstances or knowledge, or without the necessary commitment, but through adoption these pets get a new chance to find great owners who will commit to keeping them fit and content.
Many people are firstly thinking of saving the life of the dog when seeing it in a rescue shelter, and they or some members of their family can get in love of a specific pet and may want to offer him or her a warm home to love in. The yorkie rescue from a shelter or adoption center or organization has the great advantage of being far less costly than buying it from a breeder, because you will only have to pay an adoption fee, or make a donation for the rescue center, that may be ten times less than the breeder’s price.
You’ll also want to budget for dog bowls for food and water, a leash and collar or harness, pet id tag, toys, doggie dental necessities like toothbrush and toothpaste, brush, shampoo, nail clipper and any vitamins or other grooming supplies your particular breed may require.
