Hershey's Story...
This is sweet Hershey and she's an 11 months old (5/15/13) black Labrador Retriever mix who she came to the shelter with 2 other puppies when she was only 6 weeks old. They were found abandoned at a deer camp and were literally starving and full of ticks. Hershey's brown and tan brother was adopted at 8 weeks, but even though Hershey was looked at, it seemed that no one wanted an all black puppy. Hershey has been at the shelter now for almost a year and has had demodex three times. The vet told us that the reoccurrence is caused from stress. Shelter life is not easy for Hershey, but she is a very nice dog and gets along well with other dogs. She has been spayed and is up to date with shots.

UPDATE: Hershey is now in foster here in New England and we hope that she will thrive and do much better with her demodex in a home environment until we can find her a perfect family...the forever family she so deserves! Hershey is improving in foster and learning the ropes of being just a dog in a home...she is a timid girl and because of this we are recommending that she be in a home with no children, maybe a young active couple with another dog as she loves other dogs and kitties too! Hershey has been through a lot in her short life but she is growing increasingly confident and with a family that will take the time and patience with her to help her come out of her shell she will make a great pet. Hershey is all about the ball says her foster mom!!

Hershey is in foster here in New England.... If you are interested in taking her into your forever home, please fill out the adoption form here: http//www.animalrescuefront.org/Adoption-Form.html

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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