If you are looking for a great family dog, Wilbur is the one! He is a very sweet, friendly, happy, and playful pup. Wilbur loves everyone he meets and is very safe and gentle with young children. He is now living with many dogs in his foster home and gets along well with big and small dogs. Wilbur is a good temperament puppy and with some basic training, he will grow up to be a wonderful dog.

Poor Wilbur was found starving under a freeway. A kind lady was in the area and found him shivering in the cold and crying out of starvation. She posted his photo and story on Facebook hoping to find him a home. She also called several rescue groups but no one would help him as he is a black puppy. The lady left Wilbur at the vet hoping the animal hospital can help. The animal hospital does not help find dogs homes but they did not have the heart to send him to kill shelters. Wilbur’s now foster mom heard his story and knew it was urgent to rescue him before it’s too late. His foster mom is an experienced dog rescuer and found over hundreds of dogs loving homes. Her home is full of rescued dogs but she does not have the heart to leave him to suffer. She took Wilbur back to her home filled with love and proper care.

Wilbur is a very healthy pup. He had his vaccinations, rabies shot, neutered, microchip, and passed negative on his blood tests. Please give Wilbur a chance to grow up safe and happy!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wilbur, 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.
