Meet Tara!

Tara was rescued with her sister Sasha from a mountain road in the middle of winter. Neighbors said they saw a woman dump 3 puppies on the side of the road. One of the puppies was already killed by a speeding car.
A kind lady knew as the weather was cold and the road was dangerous that she couldn’t leave them on the road and so took them in to care for them. They are both super sweet and healthy.

Tara is very healthy; she has up to date vaccinations, rabies shot and microchip. She is ready for a forever home. Will you open your heart and let Tara become a member of your family? Tara will be a good girl and keep you company!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tara, 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.
