Rex's Story...
My name is Rex, a very handsome 12-year-old Border Collie mix. I was a stray that was hit by a car (I came out of that pretty darn good don’t ya think?) so Hopes Haven took me in. I am a nice quiet senior who doesn’t mind other dogs. I do still have a little umph in me and I looove to chase cats so a home without them would be the way to go.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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