Tanner's Story...
Tanner is a mellow fellow! Tanner is a quiet and mellow guy who likes to shadow the volunteers at Safe Place. A volunteer recently took him to a fenced area thinking Tanner would enjoy a good run. Instead, he preferred to stay glued to the volunteer’s side. Tanner was a stray in Blackhawk County and his time was up at Animal Control when we offered to take him in. Two volunteers gave him a bath and pulled 40 ticks from Tanner’s thick coat. Groomer Amy Rambo kindly donated a free "haircut" because Tanner was so matted he needed to be shaved. Poor baby! He is feeling much better now. Tanner is a chow mix—he had a spotted tongue—and possibly Samoyed or Akita. He is a great dog who will make a wonderful addition to some lucky family. He is 50 pounds and 8 years old.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tanner, a Cedar Rapids Chow Chow/Samoyed dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chow Chow/Samoyed for sale in Cedar Rapids, or seeking a Chow Chow/Samoyed dog from a breeder in Cedar Rapids.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cedar Rapids 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 Cedar Rapids 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 Chow Chow/Samoyed breeders who help with Chow Chow/Samoyed rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cedar Rapids paves the way for another one to be saved.
