About Cliff’s rescue:
Over a construction site, many stray dogs can be seen. They were the offspring of dogs abandoned by families moved away because of land development. It’s a harsh environment for the youngsters. Thankfully, the site was often visited by volunteers with food to keep them alive.
One day the volunteer fed a black female dog, heavy into pregnancy. When she visited again the next day, she noticed the mother dog had already delivered her babies. The volunteer followed the mother dog to her babies. When she did find them, she was shocked by the scene, there were twelve newborn puppies waiting to be fed.
It is the mother dog’s nature that she doesn’t want strangers find her babies. The babies were moved away the next day when the volunteer returned to the site. The volunteer made some efforts to finally find them again; there she spotted another female dog of tan color nearby. This solved the mystery: two mothers were sharing their nursing duties. Together they were taking care of twelve puppies!
During the next month, even though the volunteer brought food to them daily, the two mothers and their babies are under the risk of snake’s attack and also endured a break out of fire in their temporary shelter. Eleven puppies survived in the end, Cliff is one of them.

The stray family was placed under foster care soon afterwards. Most of the youngsters had found their forever homes. Cliff is patiently waiting for his turn. Are you willing to take Cliff in as a member of your family to love him and provide for him?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cliff, a San Mateo Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in San Mateo, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in San Mateo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Mateo 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 San Mateo 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/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Mateo paves the way for another one to be saved.
