Jake's Story...
Jake is a border collie/aust. cattle dog mix. He is about 2 years old based on his vet records and has a little bob tail. Jake came into our shelter as a stray back in April. He was wearing a collar and a rabies tag which was traced back to his owner through his vet. Unfortunately, the owner said she was too busy to come and pick him up and just wanted him to be left at the shelter. Jake is a fabulous dog who interacts well with all of the staff, visitors and also shares a kennel with another dog here at the shelter. Please take a moment to check him out, he will make someone a great friend!

Act quickly to adopt Jake. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jake, a Taylorsville Border Collie/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd for sale in Taylorsville, or seeking a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Taylorsville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Taylorsville 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 Taylorsville 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 Border Collie/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Border Collie/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Taylorsville paves the way for another one to be saved.
