Shirley's Info...

Shirley's Story...
Hi there! My name's Shirley, and I'm a fun loving lab / bassett hound mix. I was recently found as a stray and brought to the shelter. I didn't come alone though. My best friend Laverne is here with me! She looks just like me, so we're most likely related. We are very attached to one another and would LOVE to find a new home where we can continue to be together. Do you have room in your house and heart for two loving girls like us?

Prior to being adopted I will be up to date on vacinations, spayed, and will have a microchip. I would do well in a home with other dogs and kids. If you think your home would be a good fit for both Laverne and I, please come visit and get to know us! The shelter is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1-5, Tuesday and Thursday from 1-8, and Saturday from 10-2.

You can see some of our adoptable pets almost every Saturday at the Petsmart in Greensburg from noon to 6pm and some Sundays too. All adoption fees include spay/neuter and up-to-date vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Youngwood 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 Youngwood 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/Basset Hound breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Youngwood paves the way for another one to be saved.
