Heath's Story...
Heath is a 4 year old, 75 pound chocolate lab returned to rescue last July due to owner's health issues. They said he was a great dog, "laid back" and would take him back if they could. Heath was initially found in the Granite City area 3 years ago. When his "time was up" at animal control, Cindy took him into her rescue. Heath is a very happy dog and loves toys. He would do best with older children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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