Athena's Info...

Athena's Story...
Athena was a young mom that gave birth in the shelter--she was friendly even though she had her pups to protect in the nosiy shelter. Mom and 10 day old pups came to our rescue and are all healthy and ready for adoption. We are looking for a foster home or a foster to adopt home for this very, very sweet mom. Athena has been an awesome mom; not only to her 8 pups but to the 3 pups abandoned by their mother--she welcomed them into her litter--she loves them all and plays and socializes them daily. Athena is great with other dogs but we are hoping to find a great home for her to now give her the love that she has given to 11 pups. Athena lost one of her babies after he tried so hard to survive--he was born without a paw and he could fit into the palm of your hand--each day she licked him and tried to feed him--and we watched the entire litter lay near him trying to keep him warm and to give him comfort. This mother was extraordinary...and as her vet says--the entire group is special.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Athena, a Sacramento American Staffordshire Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Sacramento, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Sacramento.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sacramento 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 Sacramento 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 American Staffordshire Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sacramento paves the way for another one to be saved.
