Benito's Story...
Save room in your heart for Benito. He's a one year old Papillon mix that was surrendered to Friendship. Benito's owner was too ill to care for him and a relative brought him to the shelter, so not much is known about this little guy. He was well taken care of and is already potty trained. Benito will go on potty pads in the house and will also go outside to potty. He's a sweet pooch that acts a little shy. He's probably wondering how he ended up in a shelter. Visit soon, Benito would love to see you.

If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Benito, a Elyria Papillon dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Papillon for sale in Elyria, or seeking a Papillon dog from a breeder in Elyria.

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