Toostie's Story...
Tootsie gets her name because she is like a tootsie roll, she's the color of chocolate and is so sweet. She was found running the streets almost getting hit by a car when some kind people saved her. The shelter was full and not taking in any more dogs so they took her home and contacted Friends of the Shelter. Thank you to her Angels! No one has called looking for her so she is now available for adoption.
Tootsie is heart worm negative. She is around 1 year old.

Act quickly to adopt Toostie. Pets at this Rescue Group may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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