Tips on Considering Adoption, Over Buying a Dog or Puppy for Sale in Las Vegas

By Adopt-a-Pet.com

Fun Things to Do With Your Dog in Las Vegas

Looking for things to do with your new canine companion in the Las Vegas area? Meet new friends, human and canine, during Yappy Hour at Rumor Las Vegas. Every third Thursday of the month, Rumor welcomes dogs and their people to enjoy cocktails, appetizers, live music, and goodie bags. You and your new pooch can also make new friends at one of many area dog parks, including the popular Desert Breeze Dog Park which features separate small and large dog areas, benches, tables, baggie dispensers, and water for your pup.

Escape the city and head out into the great outdoors with a hike in Red Rock Canyon. Bring Fido along as you motor along the scenic drive, stop for a picnic, and enjoy the more than 30 miles of hiking trails. Just keep your pup on a leash in the conservation area. You can also see the natural side of Las Vegas with your dog on an ATV tour with American Adventure Tours. Be a tourist in your own city as you see the desert from a new perspective.

If your new pup has a high energy level and loves the water, check out the Las Vegas Dock Dogs to see if this performance sport is right for your buddy. With a free introductory swim, you don’t have to spend a dime to see if your pooch will love this sport. As a proud pet parent, give in to the temptation to show off your dog to family and friends with a photo shoot from My Dogs Studio. Olivia will capture your furry friend’s spirit and personality for posterity during a fun, relaxing shoot.

Las Vegas Dog Rescues & Shelters

The Top 5 Reasons to Adopt, Rather than Buy a Dog or Puppy for Sale in Las Vegas

  1. Finding the Best Match - Luckily, when you decide you want to add a furry member to your family, you have many dogs to choose from. Dogs and puppies of different breeds come with genetic tendencies that vary between breeds. More importantly, they also have distinct personalities, as each is an individual! It is common for rescuers and animal shelter staff and volunteers to already know the personality and tendencies of many of their dogs and puppies. This means they can better match up your requirements and lifestyle with the ideal dog or puppy. When searching for a new dog or puppy in Las Vegas, consider your lifestyle first. Answer yourself these questions:
    1. Do you have time to housetrain a puppy and teach them the rules of the house?
    2. Can you provide adequate exercise for an active dog, or one who needs mental stimulation and lots of interaction?
    3. Will your new four-legged friend have other pets as buddies around the house?
    4. Is it critical that you find a dog who is comfortable with children?
  2. Purebred or Fabulous Mixed-Breed: Shelters Have Them All! - Looking for a specific type of dog or puppy? It is estimated that 30% of all shelter animals are purebred. There are also large numbers of “breed-rescue” organizations specifically devoted to rescuing and adopting out a particular breed. On the other hand, you can find your own one-of-a-kind, amazing mixed-breed dog in a shelter. We love those fabulous mutts! Due to a larger gene pool to draw from, often mixed-breed dogs have fewer behavioral problems or health issues, and can even live longer than purebred dogs. In short, whatever you’re looking for you can find at your local shelter or rescue group in Las Vegas, and right here on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
  3. Adult Adoption = Less Stress - Adopting an adult dog has many advantages. Adult dogs in shelters have often already been in homes, and may already be housebroken and obedience-trained. Also, since adult dogs’ personalities are already established, it is easy to tell if they are good with children, or familiar and comfortable with other pets. One thing is certain; adult dogs require less attention and less work than puppies do. Best of all, any rescued dog will be forever grateful you saved their life.
  4. Be a Hero - Adoption helps save lives! One dog or puppy adopted in Las Vegas paves the way for another one to be saved. When you choose to adopt, you’re an instant hero.
  5. Adoption is MORE AFFORDABLE - Typically, adoption fees are much less than you’d pay for a dog or puppy for sale at a pet store, or even a breeder, in Las Vegas. Adopting is especially a great deal because usually rescued dogs and puppies have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and have been spayed or neutered. It all adds up, but when you choose pet adoption you are paying less for a dog or puppy who is just as perfect as one you’d find for sale!
