Why Adoption is a Great Option

Athena- Wisconsin, a Wood Dale Pointer/English Setter dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pointer/English Setter for sale in Wood Dale, or seeking a Pointer/English Setter dog from a breeder in Wood Dale.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wood Dale 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 Wood Dale 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 Pointer/English Setter breeders who help with Pointer/English Setter rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wood Dale paves the way for another one to be saved.
