SISSY's Story...
ADOPT ME! SISSY has had a rough road lately! She is another lovely dog that has had to adjust her life because there was no "backup plan" to place her in another home when her "human senior citizen" was placed in a nursing home! SISSY was living with a man that had progressive dementia. His family was late in getting him help and he had been in a few car accidents (Sissy was also in some of these accidents). They both were very lucky neither were hurt! However, this last accident led the family to fly down and take Sissy's owner home with them. They did not have enough money to also take SISSY! This was bad news for Sissy because there was no animal shelter in this county. What happens next???

This is where the network of rescue comes in! A rescue group called For The Love of Paws stepped in..... But, as so many rescues are full to the brim, they did not have an available foster family to take Sissy on such short notice. This group reached out to the shelter we partner with, Campbell Co., and they, in turn, reached out to us. How do you say no when Adopt Me! Bluegrass Pet Rescue is one of the few rescues that will take seniors in this condition. So, add another lovely "older gal" to the bunch!

MEET SISSY! She is a lovely dog and will be a lap dog extraordinaire! She has some weight to lose and she'll need a dental before she goes to her new family! If you'd like to meet this girl that now needs her Forever Family more than ever, please email to Adopt Me! Bluegrass Pet Rescue at email: adoptmebpr@aol.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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