Meggie's Story...
Black dogs are statistically the last dogs to be adopted from shelters and rescues. For some reason, people are not inclined to adopt them. We always shake our heads at this, especially when we meet great lady dogs like Meggie. She is so sweet that we don't know how anyone could have ever given her up!

When we first pulled Meggie from Animal Care and Control, she was very shy and uncertain of her surroundings. Boy, has that changed! Miss Meggie is full of life and ready to take on the world! She loves to meet new people and is quite agile - during a recent introduction, she stood on the sink to drink from a drippy faucet AND jumped clear into the grooming tub! Silly gal. She and Wick are best buddies and love to hang out together. Her big friendly smile invites people to pet her - and she loves that! Check back soon for updates on our energetic little miss.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Meggie, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Chicago.

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