Meet Matta!

Matta and his siblings were born to a stray mother. The mother dog has been on the watch list of a rescuer for quite some time, but the rescuer failed to get her spayed before she got pregnant since she’s always alert and hard to get close to even with food.
It was until after she gave birth to four puppies and finished lactating her pups, the rescuer was able to capture her youngsters. All four puppies went through a complete medical checkup and were nursed to good health. They are well prepared for adoption.

Matta, being born black, is one of the most common strays in Taiwan. His chance of being adopted locally is very slim. The rescue group would not give up on this black pearl and decided to put him up for overseas adoptions.

We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of raising a puppy. Would you open your heart and let Matta become a part of your family? The lively and adorable Matta would sure bring lots of love and fun to your family life!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Matta, a Castro Valley Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Castro Valley, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Castro Valley.

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