BUDDY's Story...
Buddy has gained quite a bit of notoriety in recent days. Some good Samaritans noticed him hanging out by the side of the road barking at cars, presumably searching cars for his owner. The community came together to try to get Buddy but he remained elusive for a while. His trust was finally gained and he was brought to the shelter on June 19th. He had a micro-chip but his ownership had recently changed after his original owner passed away. A large community was involved in the rescue of Buddy and lots of online sharing occurred. It appears many people may be interested in giving him a final forever home. If Buddy is adopted, all the other people interested in him could still help as there are many homeless pets at the shelter just as deserving as Buddy. Buddy is 12 years old and weighs 69 pounds. He is already neutered and micro-chipped. He will be available for adoption on 6/25 and will be heartworm tested upon adoption. He is in Run 22 and his ID is 597180.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BUDDY, a Marietta 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 Marietta, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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