Tilly's Story...
Tilly is a yellow lab mix who is still very new to ACR. She's a young girl who was raised in a happy home, but as her family grew they found they had less and less time to spend with her. Because they love her, they want to find her a new family who can give her the attention she deserves. Tilly has just arrived at her foster home, but it is an auspicious beginning. This 40 pounder is very puppy-like in her playfulness, but isn't showing any puppy naughtiness - chews only on her toys and no accidents in the house. She is affectionate and responsive to people and knows basic commands like 'sit' and 'come'. Her original owners say she is good with children although she does do some excited licking when she sees them. Typical young dog stuff. Tilly instantly made friends with the other dog in her foster house - he happily shares his food bowl with her and she in turn invites him to sleep on her dog bed. Her intentions toward the cat are good, but he is older and not so flexible and she is young and ardent. Stay tuned for more pictures of Tilly.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tilly, a Athens 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 Athens, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Athens.

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