Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gretchen, a Peru Basenji dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji for sale in Peru, or seeking a Basenji dog from a breeder in Peru.

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