Tonka's Story...
This handsome guy is Tonka, a 13 year old yellow lab that sadly, is looking for a new home. We are heartbroken that we are looking for a home for such a beautiful, sweet guy that is in the prime in his life, but Tonka's owners have given him up and we would love to find a wonderful home for this great guy. Tonka's owners admitted that they were going to leave him in the woods but had a change of heart. We are very happy to have this beautiful boy with us, and realize that is will take a special person to open their hearts and home to a senior dog, but he has so much love to give and has a great personality. Tonka is very active and loves to go for walks. He is already having fun in our exercise yard and is actually quite playful and loves toys. He is very well behaved and walks well on a leash, and also sits nicely when asked. Tonka gets along well with cats and kids, and likes mellow, female dogs. Please consider being that very special someone for Tonka, that will let him live out his days in peace and comfort like he deserves. File#22809 8/31/13

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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