Adopted dogs make wonderful pets! So many people are told they can only get a dog with a good temperament if they purchase a pure bred from a breeder. This is not true. Dogs at Saving Grace are selected from local shelters where lack of kennel space keeps animals from being placed up for adoption. Before a dog comes into the Saving Grace program, it is evaluated for temperament and suitability as a family pet. Here are the dogs and puppies currently available for adoption at Homeward Pet

FAQ for Dog Veterinarian Visits - Taking your dog to the veterinarian should be your first priority. This is especially true if you have other pets. It's a good idea to make sure your new pet is healthy and doesn't have any diseases or viruses he or she could transmit to other dogs in the house. The best way to find a veterinarian is by word of mouth. The dog shelter or rescue group where you adopted your dog may have a good recommendation. For proper preventative care, your dog should be examined by a veterinarian twice a year. A typical vet checkup includes searching for fleas using a special flea comb. Taking your dog's temperature, and a physical examination which will include checking your dog's ears, eyes, nose, teeth, skin, legs, joints, and genitals, and lymph nodes and listen to the heart and lungs. It will be common for the veterinarian to stress the importance of avoiding parasites, and will suggest options for flea and tick prevention and control.Adopting a pet in the New York City area?

How to Map Out a Dog Friendly Schedule – How much time your new dog will really needs is dependent on the type of dog, and what the temperament of dogs for adoption you are looking for. These factors include but not limited to the dog’s breed, age, amount of previous training, other pets & people in your home, and your current activity level and lifestyle. Matching the time a dog will take to the amount of time you want to spend with your dog is a very important aspect of searching dogs for adoption! A good first step is really thinking about your daily routine. How much free time do you have each day that you are willing to devote to the care, training, and attention of your new dog over the next few months, and then for the lifetime of that dog? For dogs, time spent just “hanging out” with you while you’re watching a movie or reading a book, counts too! Dogs and puppies vary the most in their time requirements, ranging from an adult, already-trained, mellow breed, to a high-energy puppy that would love a jogging companion and another high-energy dog friend. Be prepared to spend at least 4-5 hours a day with a high energy puppy who needs training, about 3-4 hours a day with a single adult dog.Adopting a pet from the Pet Adoption and Protection Center is a low cost, personally satisfying alternative to purchasing a pet from a pet store.
