Rhino's Story...
Rhino is an older Labrador who was surrendered to a high kill shelter in Louisiana by an owner who could no longer care for him. Rhino's age and the fact that he was a dark colored, male, large breed dog at a crowded public pound made his adoption chances slim to none. Just a few days after being surrendered, Rhino found himself on the euthanasia list. Thanks to the PAWS of NE LA "Pops Fund" that helps older dogs at this shelter, Rhino was instead rescued and is a super star in foster care! Rhino is now looking for a forever home through the help of Bonnie Blue Rescue. He is approximately 65# and 8 years old. He is housetrained, crate trained (but trustworthy inside uncrated), good with other dogs and kids, walks nicely on leash and likes to go for car rides. He LOVES his tennis balls and likes to carry them around the house and play fetch. He is totally confindent in new situations and enjoys meeting new people and pets. His foster mom has only good things to say about Rhino and tells us that whoever adopts this dog is getting a total gem!! Rhino has TONS of life left to live and just needs someone to appreciate the amazing dog that he is! He is neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped. Rhino did test positive for heartworm but is breezing through a 3 month treatment and will be done, heartworm free and ready to transport HOME in late February. Here is Rhino in action at the vet the day he was rescued from the shelter:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rhino, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Richmond.

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