Benji's Story...
Benji is an adorable 2 year old male Basset Hound / Beagle Mix with the most beautiful tri-color markings and weighing in at just 33lbs. He is sweet, loving and affectionate. He just adores people and is a people pleaser. He gets along with other dogs and rode up from Miami with a van full! He enjoys socializing with other dogs and will make a great playmate for another canine or even a humane. He is one of our dogs transported up from Miami Dade shelter in our Saving Death Row Dogs program. It’s hard to believe this gorgeous boy was never adopted! He will make a great addition to any home. Please call the shelter 563-652-5360 for more information. $70 adoption fee includes spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchip, de-fleaing & de-worming and heartworm test. We offer a 3 week money back (less $10 + $5 if paid on web) or even trade on another pet (dog for dog / cat for cat). This will give the pet and the adopting family time to get acquainted, for the pet to learn house rules, for scared dogs to feel safe and secure, etc. This is a dog from our 'Saving Death Row Dogs' program. This transport is from a Miami Dade kill shelter and many of these dogs were taken off the main adoption room floor and could not be viewed by potential adopters. Some literally had hours until death for no fault of their own...just because of overcrowding, no homes and to make room for new incoming dogs.. But because of this great program and hard work of the 'Dogs on the Move' organization staff, our staff and volunteers that we were able to save these wonderful dogs and cats ...we would like to thank our donors, its' because of their donations that we were able to take a lot on the 'Most Urgent Red Code List'. Do you have room in your heart and home to give one of these sweet boys or girls a second chance at life in a loving home and a 'Happily Ever After'that they deserve? YOUR NEW COMPANION WILL COME WITH THE FOLLOWING -- spaying or neutering (which must be done before you can take your new family member home), all up-to-date vaccinations including rabies and rabies vaccination tag. Please bring a leash with you to the shelter to escort your new family member home properly. *BREED DISCLOSURE: Due to the fact that most of our adoptable pets are strays, we can’t guarantee their breed. We list the pet’s breed as the one that best matches the physical appearance, and the pet may also be listed as a mix when it’s a purebred. COST OF ADOPTION -- Dogs $70 and Cats $55. Cash only please if paid at the shelter. sorry no checks or credit cards. Microchip available at extra cost.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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