VELMA (R)'s Story...
Meet the gorgeous Velma and her handsome associate Rocco! You might recognize these sweethearts from a recent news story. They were abandoned in the backyard of the home they lived in when their owners decided to up and leave them there and move out. They've definitely been dealt an unfair hand thus far in life, but it's never too late for a happy ending, and that's what we wish for them both! Rocco and Velma would make excellent additions to any home. They are loving and caring dogs who have so much to offer. They will both sit when asked and have very sweet personalities. Velma is about 2 years old and weighs 21 lbs. The dogs would love to stay together, however it is not required and they can be adopted to separate homes. Velma is current on her vaccines and will be spayed and micro chipped upon adoption. Unfortunately due to the neglect she's suffered, she has tested positive for heartworms. Fortunately they are treatable and Velma will be good as new in no time. Please discuss the best treatment option with your veterinarian. Her ID # is 575491 and she can be found in cage 301 along with Rocco. Come meet them today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

VELMA (R), a Marietta Rat Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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