Daphne's Story...
Please go to www.findingshelter.org for more information and to submit an application. Thank you!

I'm Daphne and I am so happy to be in a cozy foster home with such terrific people. They say the very best things to me like, "you are such a good girl," "you are so pretty," and "Miss Daphne, you're perfect." It has been quite a journey to get here and I know that I am almost there to my final destination...a forever home! I was found as a stray with a very, very bad injury to my leg and paw. It looked like my leg was caught in a trap and I pulled my way out of it. There was no way that I would ever recover from the severe injuries so my leg had to be removed to much. It hurt so much but I feel better now and it's hard to remember what happened to me or how bad I felt. I do remember the kindness that everyone showed me and how hard they worked to get me to Finding Shelter where I would be safe and guaranteed to find a forever home. I need help to take that one last step to finding a family to love. That's where I need you! Please go to fill out an application so we can be a family. You will not be disappointed. I am really good at snuggling and will leave you plenty of room on the couch!

A Finding Shelter volunteer will review your application and call you with any questions. If all adoption requirements are met a volunteer will call you to set up an appointment.
Initial meeting with Finding Shelter dogs or cats. ALL members of family household are required to meet the Finding Shelter animal(s) before an adoption decision is determined.

Home visit completed by Finding Shelter volunteer.
Application is approved or denied based on the successful previous steps. Decisions for adoption typically take between one and weeks.
If the application is approved, a Finding Shelter volunteer will complete the adoption process by assisting with a smooth transition of the Finding Shelter animal(s) into their new, permanent home. Adopter will be provided with information about the specific animal's diet, containment/management/crating, baby gating in house when dog is to be left alone, housetraining, safe outdoor exercise, preventative veterinary care, manners and behavior training, etc.
Continued support will be provided for the adopter to ensure a smooth transition and permanent placement of the pet in the adopter's home.


Multiple applications are accepted for all Finding Shelter animals with the intent to make the best match possible.

Therefore, Finding Shelter reserves the right to make adoption decisions based on the animal's permanent placement in a loving home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Daphne, a Norristown 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 Norristown, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Norristown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Norristown 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 Norristown 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 Norristown paves the way for another one to be saved.
