Tess's Info...

Tess's Story...
Tess can seem shy at first, but she will warm up just as soon as you reach out to pet her! She loves affection and her favorite place to be is right by your side! She loves to spend some time out in the sun, but is an indoor dog. She came in from another shelter, so little is known about her past living situations and environments. The cost of her adoption does not include the cost of her spay surgery. Once adopted, she will be transported to a local veterinarian where she will be released to her adopters once payment to the clinic is complete! Her adoption fee is $85.00.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tess, a Rapid City Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd for sale in Rapid City, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Rapid City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rapid City 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 Rapid City 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 Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rapid City paves the way for another one to be saved.
