Melvin's Story...

Abandoned unwanted at the county pound, he's about 8 weeks old, weighs approx. 8 pounds, is up to date on all vaccinations, de-wormed, and will come with a neuter voucher that will cover a portion of the procedure. He's very friendly and playful. He would love a fur-ever home and would make anyone a great companion. His adoption fee is $250. His ID is DM1609003. All stray and undocumented pets taken in by RCHS are held in ISO for a minimum of 10-14 days to be sure they are virus free and healthy before adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Melvin, a Lumberton Dachshund/Rat Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Rat Terrier for sale in Lumberton, or seeking a Dachshund/Rat Terrier puppy from a breeder in Lumberton.

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