My story

In March 2021 Ron and his brother, Duke, were tossed out of a moving car in a dark, rural area of Arkansas. A good Samaritan witnessed this inhumane act, flipped on the garage light and went out to see about them and the 2 puppies came running up the very long drive to him. He scooped them up and found refuge for them in one of our foster homes. On 3/11/21 they were estimated to be 11 weeks old. They appear to be lab mixes and are growing into big boys. They are smart, active, and lovable. In August they completed a 5-week training class at a local pet supply store with their foster mom. These gorgeous boys are up to date on vaccinations, have been neutered, and are being kept on monthly heartworm and flea and tick prevention to maintain their good health. On 11/17/21 Ron weighed 61 pounds. Ron is currently being fostered in Arkansas. The adoption donation for Ron is $305 which includes the $155 transport fee. A fenced yard is required. If you would like to adopt Ron, the first step in the adoption process is to fill out an online adoption application. You can find a copy of that application here. We sometimes receive a lot of interest on an animal and can't always reply to each email in a timely manner. An application does not obligate you to adopt from us, but it does show that you are serious about the adoption process. Please remember we are all volunteers.
After you submit your application, please allow a few days for a volunteer to review your application. During this time your vet reference will be checked and a volunteer with determine if it is the best match for you and the animal. Applications are not approved on a first come, first serve basis. We match up the best home for the animal, so even if the pet has other applications, this does not mean he/she will be adopted to that home.
Once your application has been approved a volunteer with contact you to set up a phone interview. This is the perfect time for you to ask any questions you have about the adoption process and the animal you are interested in.

Why adoption is a great option

Ron, a Harrisburg 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 Harrisburg, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Harrisburg.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Harrisburg 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 Harrisburg 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 Harrisburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
