Avery's Story...
SINGLE girl looking for a family!

Hi! I am Avery and am a graduate of the Puppies for Parole Program and would like to continue my training towards my Canine Good Citizen Award. I know how to sit, down, shake, stay, leave it, and drop it. Pretty impressive, right? Also, not to brag but I am also crate trained and housebroken. What more could a person want? I absolutely love to play and am so very happy! I really do prefer no cats...just not my cup of tea. Please consider meeting me. My foster mom can answer any questions you might have.

Avery's adoption fee is $175; she is microchipped, spayed, and up to date on vaccines. Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at 618-282-7387 to arrange a meeting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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