Onyx's Story...
Meet Onyx! This precious puppy was found as a stray with his whole family. Thankfully they were taken to a safely to the shelter and now Onyx is part of the ACR family! There are currently other dogs living with Onyx and he is doing great with them. He seems to pick up on social cues very well and finds another playmate when his older pals decide they've had enough. Cats don't seem to interest him and he sleeps through the night in his crate. At such a young age, it's hard to tell how big he will get but probably won't be more than 50lbs. Stay tuned as we learn more about Onyx!
To ensure our dogs are placed in a safe environment, we require a home visit for all adoptions. Because of this, we typically only adopt to homes within 30 minutes of Athens, GA. If you are further away than that and are interested in one of our pups, please still fill out an application and we can discuss your options. Please understand that you would be responsible for all transportation - meeting the dog, picking the dog up to start a trial, returning the dog should he/she not be a good fit, etc. Please visit our website for more info.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Onyx, a Athens 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 Athens, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Athens.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Athens 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 Athens 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 Athens paves the way for another one to be saved.
