Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sally, a Bellingham Whippet/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Whippet/Chihuahua for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Whippet/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham 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 Bellingham 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 Whippet/Chihuahua breeders who help with Whippet/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
