ALVIN's Story...
Alvin is as soft as cotton and very sweet. He knows sit, but he was much too interested in playing to sit for too long for his pictures. He is really cute. He was adopted from the shelter in March when he was about 2 months old, but he was brought back to the shelter as an owner turn in on 10/30/2015. His previous owner was moving. They didn't leave his name, so he is being called Alvin right now. Alvin is about a year old and he's 50 lbs. He is current on his vaccines, neutered, and microchipped. He will be heartworm tested when adopted. Alvin's ID is 580095 and he is in run 849. His run number could change, so please ask for assistance if you don't find him in run 849.

When calling the shelter about a cat or dog, please use THE ID NUMBER, the names are oftentimes made up by volunteers.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ALVIN, a Marietta Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marietta paves the way for another one to be saved.
