Rio's Story...
Greetings! Do you need me to do your taxes? How about fix your car? My foster mom says I'm smart enough to do almost anything! I'm about 4 months old and I'm about the cutest thing you ever hope to see. My foster brother, Stetson, and I play all the time and then curl up together for a nap. I make the silliest sounds when I play with him. I love the other dogs, too. The cats fascinate me but I have learned that it's best not to mess with those magnificent creatures. I'm crate trained and just about housetrained.

Although I have the most gorgeous Lab face, I might have something else in me to set me apart from the others because I have a unique tail that curls over my back. Of course, this is very dignified and I know the other dogs all wish their tails were like mine. If you have been thinking about adding a new face to your family, I don't think you could do better than a boy like me!

We require an application, phone interview and home visit prior to adoption. We will not discuss a specific dog with an applicant until the adoption process is completed. Our adoption fee for dogs under 9 months is $250, dogs between 9 months and 8 years is $195 and our super seniors are $175. Please visit our website for more information. Thank you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rio, a Evergreen 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 Evergreen, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Evergreen.

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