Ryder's Story...

Ryder was found in the middle of the road and spent the night tied to an animal lover's porch so that he would not be hit by a car. The lady who found him looked for an owner in the hope of getting Ryder home, but when that didn't happen, she took him to a local boarding facility. He hates being shut up and longs to be outside. He probably has never been allowed inside, so an ARF member with a kennel took him home. Ryder is 5-6 years old and weighs 22 pounds. He is a friendly guy who would probably need a good fence to keep him from following his beagle nose and getting into trouble. But he's a sweet boy, and we know the perfect home is out there for him.  He has been helping another frightened little beagle in his foster home learn to trust people.  But Ryder deserves a home of his own and a family who loves him.

UPDATE:  Poor Ryder tested positive for heartworms and didn't get to go to rescue as planned on 1/16/2016.  ARF will treat Ryder in the hope that after six months and a retest, he can be better and find his happy ending.

UPDATE 2:  Treatment worked!  Ryder tested negative for heartworms on 8/31/ 2016, and will be heading to rescue on 9/3/2016!  Ryder's happy ending is here!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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