Checkers's Story...
Sweet Checkers came into Summit County Animal Control as a stray. Despite being a senior, having her remaining teeth removed, and losing an eye, she is SPUNKY! She has a love for food, and she's great with other dogs, cats, and children! This great dog is looking for a great home. She may be a senior, but that means she knows how to live it up with a new family! Adoption Fee $100 - Please submit an application at www.maggiesmissionrescue.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Checkers, a Sharon Center Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu for sale in Sharon Center, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Sharon Center.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sharon Center 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 Sharon Center 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 Shih Tzu breeders who help with Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sharon Center paves the way for another one to be saved.
