Silas's Story...
Hi! My name is Silas! I am a 5yr old, male, neutered, Rat Terrier mix. I was found as a stray dog and dropped at OC Animal Shelter. When my owners never came to find me, my time to find a new home had run out fast. I was very close to euthanasia when The PRC found me. I was scared and shy at the shelter and was not showing my true personality. Now that I am back at the pet rescue center, I feel safe, loved, and much happier than before. I love going on walks, playing with my buddies and meeting new nice people at events. I am going to be the perfect dog for the right family. I am quiet, mellow, cuddly and very smart. I have a clean bill of health and a lot of love to give. I am hoping someone will take the chance to see me so I can show them just how special I really am. Please come down and meet with me today! I could be the right boy for you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Silas, a Mission Viejo Rat Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier for sale in Mission Viejo, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Mission Viejo.

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