Marilyn's Story...
My name is Marilyn and I am a cute and petite golden mix (35 pounds). Just at 4 years of age, my life has not been great up until this point. My family abandoned me and my little puppy in our home. Luckily someone called and they rescued us. After spending two weeks at a shelter while they looked for my family, I was able to put on a much needed 10 pounds. That is good news! Bad news is I have heart worms but the nice people with AGK found me a sponsor to pay for my treatment! I passed this fun behavior test at the shelter too - they said I was a social butterfly. So right now, I am recouping from my heart worm treatment and waiting on a family to fall in love with me. But I am quite cute - like a little bear cub kind of cute!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marilyn, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Portland.

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