Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alex, a Irmo Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Irmo, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Irmo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Irmo 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 Irmo 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 Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Irmo paves the way for another one to be saved.
