Artax's Story...
Meet Artax! This handsome gentleman is looking for a family to love. When we saw Artax at the shelter we knew we couldn’t leave him behind. He was so disheartened and would barely lift his head to look at us. We weren’t sure if he was injured, sick or had just given up, but when we took him out and started to leave you could see that light start to come back in his eyes. Now at The Pet Rescue Center he is like a new dog! He is thriving with the love and attention he is getting here and can’t wait for his daily walks with our volunteers. We have introduced him to other dogs and while he does well he would probably do best as the only dog in his home. We believe he is around 4 years old which is a great age since he is still quite active but also inclined to just lounge around for the day if you want. If you think that Artax would be a good match for your family please contact The Pet Rescue Center!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Artax, a Mission Viejo German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Mission Viejo, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Mission Viejo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mission Viejo 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 Mission Viejo 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 German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mission Viejo paves the way for another one to be saved.
