Gracie's Story...
This is Gracie. Although she had a rough start to life being hoarded with many other dogs, Gracie loves people and once she gets to know you, has no problem cuddling right up to you. Gracie is a gorgeous, merle colored, smooth-coated collie mix, about 45lbs, and between 4 and 5 years old. She does well with other dogs, but we aren't sure about cats. For Gracie, since she can be scared of loud noises and commotion, we recommend that she go home with polite children ages 8 and up. We think that once Gracie adjusts to prison life, she'll do very well with her obedience training. Gracie needs time and patience to adjust to new situations, but once she bonds with someone, she is devoted and faithful. More updates to come as Gracie learns what it's like to be loved and cared for.

Gracie is receiving obedience training at a Virginia correctional center. To learn more about the Pen Pals program, please visit our website at www.fetchacure.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gracie, a Richmond Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Collie dog from a breeder in Richmond.

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