River's Story...
This magnificent 1 1/2- 2 year old male is an unbelievable find for CLR. His foster said they just love this big boy after only two days at their house. He is the sibling to Starlight, and right now he is a little sad with the separation, but we know he will feel better very soon in his loving foster home. He took him a few days to enjoy eating, but his appetite is rapidly returning as he learns to trust his new environment. An obvious sign of lack of previous attention is that his foster is literally teaching him about using stairs and a crate. He and his sister were found as strays (which can be interpreted a million different ways),and there is every indication that neither of them received adequate care, let alone sufficient love and care. It’s difficult for us to imagine the confusion they must feel moving from point A to point B and often C and D before they are “really home”.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

River, a Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
