Abilene's Story...
Abilene and her brother, Austin, were pulled from the Clay City, KY shelter, where they had been surrendered by their owner. They are purebred Aussies, with all the energy and intelligence of the breed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Abilene, a Ripley Australian Shepherd puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd for sale in Ripley, or seeking a Australian Shepherd puppy from a breeder in Ripley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ripley 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 Ripley 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 Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ripley paves the way for another one to be saved.
