Colby’s Rescue Story

Colby was rescued along with 6 siblings. They had been living in a car park next to a building site since they were born. It was very dangerous for them as cars coming in and out never cared that they were there and one of Colby’s siblings was even badly hurt by one of the cars and no one even got medical care for her.

The building site was nearly finished and the government was to be called soon about the puppies. One of the feeding ladies was very worried about them as the government shelters are full to the brim and they would not get the medical attention or love that they so very much deserve. They were rescued one evening and taken straight to the vet for medical care. All 7 puppies were covered in fleas and were so dirty, hungry and dehydrated.

Luckily a wonderful foster mom agreed to take them in and they have been living at the foster home with several other rescues. Colby and his siblings have become a part of the family learning how to walk on the leash and housetraining.

We are so happy that Colby and his siblings are now safe and they have grown into beautiful loving pups. Colby is vaccinated, neutered and chipped and ready for that special home where he’ll will just want to play and have fun with his new parents and we know that he will very much enjoy park time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Colby, a Castro Valley 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 Castro Valley, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Castro Valley.

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