Why adoption is a great option

Rusty, a East Hartford Boxer/Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Golden Retriever for sale in East Hartford, or seeking a Boxer/Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in East Hartford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in East Hartford 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 East Hartford 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 Boxer/Golden Retriever breeders who help with Boxer/Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in East Hartford paves the way for another one to be saved.
