Mona's Story...
Mona was brought to the shelter by her previous owner due to no fault of her own. She is a little unsure why she is at the shelter and anxious to get a new home and start a new life. Mona is a calm girl who is housebroken, gets along with other dogs and kids too. Mona is a very sweet girl who would like nothing more than to be a couch potato.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mona, a Columbia Basset Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound for sale in Columbia, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Columbia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Columbia 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 Columbia 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 Basset Hound breeders who help with Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Columbia paves the way for another one to be saved.
