Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hopper, a Chester Chihuahua/Whippet dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Whippet for sale in Chester, or seeking a Chihuahua/Whippet dog from a breeder in Chester.

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