Adopting a St Bernard
Adopting a St Bernard is a great way to go. Millions of Dogs and Cats are adopted per year which gives them an opportunity for a great life.
We adopted this beautiful girl shown here _________________________________________>>>>>>
We have had success adopting 3 St Bernard's from Craigslist at Craigslist.org.
1). Research the ad thoroughly. Many will have a “re-homing” fee which means the current owners want a fee for the St Bernard.
2). Use Craigslist rules for safety and payment. Rule of thumb if the ad sounds hokey, it probably is so be careful (the takeaway is we had great success 3 times). Search for the same picture on google image search https://images.google.com/ if it pops up all over the country its probably not legitimate.
3). Another great option is your local pet shelters. All of the shelters in our region have a searchable data base you can enter “St Bernard” and visit your possible new friend.
4). St Bernard's are typically a hard find and go fast on these sites so if you have interest you better hop in the car. We arrived at 10:30 to a local pet store for an adoption starting at 11:30 only to find someone had called the shelter the night before to place “dibs” on the St Bernard we were hoping to adopt so do some legwork if you have an opportunity to pace a deposit or call and place a hold you may want to do so. My daughters heart was broken when we drove for 45 minutes to get to the adoption early only to find the St Bernard shown on the website for the adoption fair was already held. It all worked out in the end and we wish you the best in your search.
