Zelda's Story...
DOB 8-12-13 When Zelda came to us she had a compounded dislocation tarsus and she was heartworm positive. She was put on antibiotics for one week and her leg surgery was scheduled, this took about 9 weeks. One month after the pins were removed Zelda was spayed. One month after that she received her first treatment for heartworms. This took her another 2 months before she could start coming out for short periods of play. This girl has been through a rough time but always stayed sweet and positive. She is now heartworm negative and ready to find her forever home. Gets along with other dogs, likes to run and play, crate trained and just a really good girl. Zelda is between 80 and 90 pounds. Zelda is one of those " I love everybody dogs " Adoption fee is $400 and transport fee is $140.

The first step in the adoption process is to fill out an online adoption application. You can find a copy of that application here. We sometimes receive a lot of interest on an animal and can't always reply to each email in a timely manner. An application does not obligate you to adopt from us, but it does show that you are serious about the adoption process. Please remember we are all volunteers.

After you submit your application please allow a few days for a volunteer to review your application. During this time your vet reference will be checked and a volunteer with determine if it is the best match for you and the animal. Applications are not approved on a first come, first serve basis. We match up the best home for the animal, so even if the pet has other applications, this does not mean he/she will be adopted to that home.

Once your application has been approved a volunteer with contact you to set up a phone interview. This is the perfect time for you to ask any questions you have about the adoption process and the animal you are interested in.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zelda, a Westport 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 Westport, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Westport.

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