Why Adoption is a Great Option

Simon, a Houston Basenji/Miniature Pinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji/Miniature Pinscher for sale in Houston, or seeking a Basenji/Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 Basenji/Miniature Pinscher breeders who help with Basenji/Miniature Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
