Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gertie, a Minneapolis Basset Hound/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Border Collie for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Basset Hound/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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 Basset Hound/Border Collie breeders who help with Basset Hound/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
