Why Adoption is a Great Option

Orion, a Lewisburg Basset Hound/Coonhound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Coonhound (Unknown Type) for sale in Lewisburg, or seeking a Basset Hound/Coonhound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Lewisburg.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lewisburg 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 Lewisburg 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/Coonhound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Basset Hound/Coonhound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lewisburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
