Duke's Story...
Hi, there! I'm Duke, a 75 pound, 6 year old chocolate lab who will melt your heart. I was kicked by a horse two years ago and my owners did not get vet care for me, so now I need surgery. Right now I only have 50% miovement in my hip joint as it is frozen and very painful. But Tuffie's Animal Rescue is collecting donations to get my hip fixed. It will cost $2000, but then it will be wonderful and will never cause me any more trouble. My other hip joint is excellent, so I am not prone to hip dysplasia as many large dogs can be. Right now I am being fostered in Tempe in a home with a cat and am very good with her. I also like other dogs. I am neutered, current on shots and will be micro chipped before going home with you. My adoption fee is only $200, which includes the surgery.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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