Daniel's Story...
Daniel turned himself in. The shelter found him standing outside in the snow and the cold, all alone, by the gate. Lucky for Daniel, a dog had just left so there was a free kennel. Free kennels, down south, are scarce. They brought him inside and gave him food, water, and a soft bed. Daniel’s an OSCAR dog now.

This handsome boy is a German Shepherd/Yellow Lab mix. He’s 3-4 years old and weighs about 55 pounds. Daniel is very friendly. He loves to be pet and shown attention. Please help Daniel find the loving home he deserves.

Daniel is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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