Arlo's Info...

Arlo's Story...
Arlo is a sociable little guy! Arlo comes to us on 2-14-13 as a stray from CR animal control. Such a social, happy boy! He weighs 32 pounds. Arlo has some grey on his muzzle but is not a senior. He is very spry and loves to play and even smiles. He is too thin so we are going to work on helping him gain weight. All Arlo wants is a warm bed, a regular meal and someone who will love him for the super dog that he is. Are you the angel he’s been waiting for?

You can meet Arlo during our open hours (Saturdays 11 am - 3 pm) or by appointment. We are located at 809 Rockford Rd SW, Cedar Rapids.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Arlo, a Cedar Rapids 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 Cedar Rapids, or seeking a Labrador Retriever 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 Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cedar Rapids paves the way for another one to be saved.
