Riley's Story...
Hello I am Riley. I am a Senior, 10 years old. I found myself at the Shelter because I was extremely abused, and not wanted anymore. I am learning that people can be good and I love a gentle touch. I'm slow to warm up to new people, but would love to have a person I can learn to trust. I could be great as an only dog or fit in with a pack. I walk good on leash. I'm low drive, but love to play chase with other dogs or tennis balls. I love it when my foster dad bathes and brushes me.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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