Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sparky, a Henderson Carolina Dog/Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Carolina Dog/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Henderson, or seeking a Carolina Dog/Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Henderson.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Henderson already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Henderson breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Carolina Dog/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Carolina Dog/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Henderson paves the way for another one to be saved.
