Why Adoption is a Great Option

*Sophie, a Elgin Shih Tzu/Affenpinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Affenpinscher for sale in Elgin, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Affenpinscher dog from a breeder in Elgin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elgin 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 Elgin 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 Shih Tzu/Affenpinscher breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Affenpinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elgin paves the way for another one to be saved.
