Sam's Story...
This dog, Sam, is an older female Shepherd mix. She came to the shelter and needed treatment for heart worm. Her treatment is over, but now she needs a foster or forever home. During her treatment it became clear that she would prefer an only-dog home. She did fine meeting cats this evening and loves human attention, but she is not a good candidate for sharing a home with another dog. Sam walks nicely on the leash and knows some commands. She can easily be corrected from dog distractions on a walk. She is housebroken and calm in the house. Is there a place for her? She faces possible euthanasia if a suitable home can not be found. Redwood Pals is committed to helping set up a new owner with a trainer that we recommend to ensure a good placement. Please contact us here if you would like to meet Sam.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sam, a McKinleyville German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in McKinleyville, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in McKinleyville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in McKinleyville 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 McKinleyville 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 German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in McKinleyville paves the way for another one to be saved.
