Meet adorable Zia!

Zia is a friendly, very sweet, happy and playful puppy! Zia and her sister, Zina, are doing well in their foster home. They love everyone they meet, good with both big and small dogs, and a good age to be introduce to cats. Zia is also good with the foster family’s son who is 8 years old. She is a good temperament puppy and with some basic training, she will sure grow up to be a wonderful dog!

Zia and Zina were living as homeless puppies surviving on garbage. There were barely any food around. They love each other and kept each other warm by sleeping under cars. A kind lady who lives in the neighborhood found them as they were all crying out of starvation. She didn’t have the heart to leave them homeless on the street but couldn’t take them home. She called several rescue groups and no one was willing to take them in as they are all full and they are black dogs. Through a friend’s referral, she found Zia’s now foster mom. Zia’s foster mom is an experienced dog rescuer and found over hundreds of dogs loving home. She knew it was urgent to take them home and promised them a good life!

Zia is a healthy girl and had her vaccination, rabies shot, spayed and microchip. All she needs is for a family to open their hearts to her and give her a new life! Please give Zia a chance to live.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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