Drake's Story...
Drake is a Good-Looking Charmer. We received a plea to take in Drake, who had been at CR animal control for several months, and was at risk of being euthanized. He came to us on 3-15-14 and we loved him immediately. While there was much barking at Safe Place when Drake arrived, he was not the one barking! His tail is perpetually wagging, wagging, wagging! Drake never has a bad day and is happy to go for a walk, although he pulls strongly and needs someone to teach him leash manners. We don’t know yet if he gets along with other dogs, but will try to introduce him to Safe Place dogs in the coming weeks. Anyone interested in adopting Drake must bring their dog to meet him.

You can meet Drake during our open hours on Saturdays (11 am - 3 pm) at our shelter located at 809 Rockford Rd SW, Cedar Rapids.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Drake, a Cedar Rapids Rottweiler/Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rottweiler/Shar Pei for sale in Cedar Rapids, or seeking a Rottweiler/Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Cedar Rapids.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cedar Rapids 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 Cedar Rapids 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 Rottweiler/Shar Pei breeders who help with Rottweiler/Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cedar Rapids paves the way for another one to be saved.
