Shirley's Story...
Hey there, name's Shirley what's yours? I've been lookin' for a new place to call my own do you think that you might know of a place like that? A place with people who I can love and be loved in return maybe? Some place that has a nice soft bed, good tasty food, fun toys and tons of belly rubs and ear scritchin's. Yeah… that sounds divine! See I was a pet before I ended up here at the shelter. I really loved my people and I would like to have a people to call my own again. A people I can keep and grow old with. I can be very lonely on occasion and having my very own people makes me O' so happy I can't remember a time I was lonely with people of my own. Sure they went to work and left for a bit but they always came back. That is what I need is a family! Could you be them? Could you be my family?! I sure hope so, I would love to visit with you (soon I hope). Wont you come see me?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shirley, a Murphysboro 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 Murphysboro, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Murphysboro.

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