Melba's Story...
Hi there! I'm Melba. Everyone says my ears are the cutest they have ever seen. I have to take their word for it because I can't them myself. I was rescued as a new-born from a high-kill shelter when Mom was given up by her family because they couldn't afford to feed her and her coming litter. That was in December, 2014. I've had nothing but the best food and plenty of loving from CARE, Inc. volunteers during my short life, so I don't even remember my bad start. Mama Oreo was rescued by CARE, Inc. along with me and my litter mates so we have had the added security and nurturing of Mom who taught us her laid-back way of getting along with other dogs. She appears to be mostly American Bulldog with some terrier tossed in the mix,maybe some dalmatian. They say she is super sweet and smart, just like me! They say my dad, a husky/shepherd mix also has a winning personality and has been adopted by a family that considers him a treasure. Does that make me hidden treasure? Not for long, I hope! Maybe you will connect with my winsome face (portrait courtesy of another talented CARE, Inc. volunteer). Volunteers are great but it's not like having a family of my own.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Melba, a Wilmington Border Collie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Wilmington, or seeking a Border Collie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) puppy from a breeder in Wilmington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wilmington 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 Wilmington 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 Border Collie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Border Collie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wilmington paves the way for another one to be saved.
