Indiana-Prison Dog's Story...
Indiana is one of a number of dogs that Director Greg Willey rescued from another county. These dogs were literally tied to trees with very little shelter during this cold winter. Indiana is a gorgeous 6 year old black lab mix that would love to finally find the home of her dreams. Indiana is very strong and active and would benefit from having an experienced owner. It's probably best if kids in the family were older due to her activity level and strength. With some patience, love and training she'll be a great pet.

On March 11, 2014, Abbie was selected to be one of Friendship's Prison Dogs. She is currently undergoing training at the Grafton Correctional Institute. Abbie is being trained in obedience, basic commands, manners and proper leash walking. She will spend approximately 12 weeks at the prison.

If you are interested in adopting a prison dog, adoption applications are now being accepted. They can be downloaded at www.friendshipapl.org under ADOPT-FIND A FRIEND. A limited amount of apps will be accepted for each Prison Dog. They must be hand delivered to Friendship. If you have any questions, please contact the shelter at 440-322-4321.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Indiana-Prison Dog, a Elyria Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Elyria, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Elyria.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elyria 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 Elyria 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 Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elyria paves the way for another one to be saved.
