Venus's Story...
My name is Venus and I just turned one in May. I am a sleek black Lab but am anxious to gain a few pounds. I was rescued by a group outside Phoenix and then DLRR took me in, as I am a full-blooded Lab. Next my fosters (an older couple) rescued me from DLRR's kennel space and now I need one more save by a family with lots of love and patience. I am good with my foster brother but don't know about cats. I have been abused and am pretty frightened of the unknown but I am making GREAT progress and will make a wonderful pet for the right family. I am gentle, haven't yet barked or had an accident in the house. I sleep in my foster brother's crate, love being petted and am doing better every day on our walks. I now love to leap and run in the yard and have stopped hiding in the bushes. Gradually, I warm up to visitors once I am sure I can trust them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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