Cooper's Story...
This adorable guy is Cooper. He is a Newfoundland/Flat-Coated Retriever Mix. Cooper came to the high-kill shelter as a stray. He had been found wandering around on the streets, all alone, with no tags or ID. Someone had to have known Cooper. Yet there were no frantic calls to the shelter from anyone asking if they had found their lost dog or any visitors stopping by to claim him as their own. That's okay. He's an OSCAR dog now. Please help Cooper find the loving home he deserves.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cooper, a Sparta Newfoundland/Flat-Coated Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Newfoundland/Flat-Coated Retriever for sale in Sparta, or seeking a Newfoundland/Flat-Coated Retriever puppy 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 Newfoundland/Flat-Coated Retriever breeders who help with Newfoundland/Flat-Coated Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sparta paves the way for another one to be saved.
