Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bocefus, a Prole Shih Tzu/Rat Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Rat Terrier for sale in Prole, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Prole.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Prole 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 Prole 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 Shih Tzu/Rat Terrier breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Rat Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Prole paves the way for another one to be saved.
