Esmeralda's Story...
Esmeralda is a 4 year old (DOB July 27, 2005), Black Lab/Golden Retriever mix. Even though she came in as a “stray,” she had been very well taken care of. You could tell that just recently she had been groomed to clip off some longer coat. At Esmeralda’s first vet visit, she tipped the scale at 100 pounds. Her foster home has been working hard with Esmeralda (exercising and limiting her food) to help her regain her girlish figure. As the weight is coming off, you can tell that she is feeling better and has more energy. Esmeralda is a very friendly dog who does well with people of all ages (including children) and gets along well with other dogs. She is a very sweet, well-behaved girl who doesn’t expect or demand a whole lot in life…even though you can tell she enjoys every bit of human attention she receives, and really enjoys her walks! Esmeralda has been vet checked, spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and tested negative for heartworm. Call 507-451-4512 to meet Esmeralda in her foster home. Her adoption fee is $185. (CE)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Esmeralda, a Owatonna Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever for sale in Owatonna, or seeking a Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Owatonna.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Owatonna 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 Owatonna 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 Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Owatonna paves the way for another one to be saved.
