Benedict's Story...
BENEDICT is an adorable Black Lab puppy who would like to find a family and a home where he can learn and grow up to be a good dog. Benedict is about 3 months old. He weighed 16 pounds in December and we expect he will grow to be a medium to large-sized dog once fully grown. He is in the process of getting his puppy shots and will get his rabies vaccine during the first week of February at which time he will be ready for adoption. He has been neutered and microchipped. He is too young to test for heartworm but he has been on monthly heartworm and flea prevention since he was rescued. His foster says that Benedict is very cute and so gentle. He is a little on the shy side but loves children and seems to like kids better than he likes strangers. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Benedict if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer rescue to cover at least part of the cost of the veterinary care this dog has received.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Benedict, a Union City 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 Union City, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Union City.

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