    Meet Griffin: this handsome boy was dumped by a previous owner on the property of our shelter. We found him sniffing around our kennels and he's been with us since. Homes for 'throw-away' animals in Mozambique are severely limited and we are desperate to find a home for our beloved Griffin. We believe his ideal home would be with no other pets and older or no children. He is basic trained and gentle on the lead. Because he came from an unknown background we can only speculate on his upbringing however dogfighting and abuse is prevalent here and we suspect he was destined to that fate at one point or another. Our shelter is small, run ... (Read More)entirely by a couple volunteers and the only one of its kind in this country. We are now overflowing with animals in need and sadly need to consider euthanasia of our unadoptable dogs. Griffin has been with us for over 7months! It has become clear there is no home for him here and we are now asking the international community to please come forth and offer a good, safe and loving home for Griffin before its too late. Its our desperate attempt at a last resort solution... We will waive the adoption fee for anyone interested should they make their own travel arrangements but we will also be willing to discuss paying for part/all of the transport anywhere in the world if the right home is found. How can anyone resist this face! Please contact us only if you are a serious about adopting. Thank you! Name: Griffin Age: unknown - approx 3-4years Condition: good Health: good & vaccinations up to date Sterilized: yes (neutered) Temperament: Well behaved; basic training; can snatch treats; doesn't get along very well with most other pets (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Mozambique
    Dogs can make good pets in Mozambique if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!
