Rufus's Story...
This nice boy is Ziggy. Ziggy was turned in to the shelter by his owner. Poor guy came in with a pretty red collar and no home to go home to. He is not happy in the shelter because he knows he doesn't belong there. He's a quiet dog that loves to go out and smell the grass and go for walks. He is looking for his owner, you can see the sadness in his eyes. He needs a new owner to make him happy again. Can you help him find one please? Thanks to the Shelby County No Kill Mission, this pet will be altered, vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested and micro chipped prior to adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rufus, a Shelbyville Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Shelbyville, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Shelbyville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Shelbyville 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 Shelbyville 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Shelbyville paves the way for another one to be saved.
