Meet adorable Nels!

Nels is a sweet, gentle, and happy puppy! Nels is doing well in his foster home with all his siblings. Nels is a well-behaved puppy and approach people very gently. Nels is also very good with the foster family’s son who is 7 years old. He will make a great family dog as he is so loving. Nels had his 2 puppies shot and is very healthy and can start going on puppy socials. With some basic training, Nels will sure grow up to be a wonderful dog!

Nels’s canine mother is an abandoned dog in the river park where she is living as an unspayed homeless dog. She gave birth to many puppies and was starving and feeding on garbage to stay strong to take care of her puppies. She took very good care of her puppies and kept them clean. Nels’s foster mom got a rescue call about them and knew it was urgent to save them from the cold rainy weather and starvation. After some searching, she spotted them with their mother lying next to the bushes where they found shelter. With some yummy chicken, she was able to rescue 6 puppies but unfortunately their mom was not rescued. Poor mama dog and 6 more puppies are still living a homeless life.

All the puppies were rushed to the vet for a complete checkup. Luckily, they are all very healthy and had their vaccinations, rabies shot, neutered and microchip. Nels is ready for his own loving forever home. We are looking for families who understand the responsibilities of raising a puppy and how important early socialization is. Please give Nels a chance to have a good life where he can be away from danger and starvation.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nels, a Castro Valley Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Castro Valley, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Castro Valley.

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