Missy's Story...
I'm Missy, a 2 1/2 year old Golden Retriever. When I was a just a young puppy I was sold by a local breeder to a family. A little more than two years later (just recently), I was returned to the breeder with a suspected torn"ACL" injury to both knees. The breeder called the vet to euthanize me due to cost of surgery, rehabilitation time, etc. I am so very lucky, because that vet could not do it. Not only did he know I was still so young, but once he met me and saw my great personality, he just couldn't! He called Lucky Dog Foundation who are now my foster mom and dad. So with the wonderful help of the vet who saved me and Lucky Dog, a plan was put in place to make me better!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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