The BEST value Pets & People Just ask anyone who has adopted from us! Shelter pets are the BEST and they appreciate you. Not so much.
* At Pets & People, the staff is familiar with the dogs; they know their personality traits, whether they’re housebroken, and if they get along with kids and other animals, etc. They will have a conversation with you to learn about your family and lifestyle and if you have other pets in order to match you with the right dog for your particular household. You get hands-on advice and we’re here to help you with problems should they arise. You can even bring your own dog along to the adoption process to see if it gets along with the new pet. Pets & People will stand by the pet and take it back at any time if you find you must relinquish it. Not only will the dog be wearing a collar with a rabies tag, you’ll also receive an I.D. tag so that Pets & People can trace the dog’s owner if it becomes lost. You just can’t beat the service, friendly advice and the lifetime of support Pets & People will give you and your pet. ADOPT, DON’T BUY!
