Facts about Meri

  • Breed: Rat Terrier
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 8048157-Arave-D-Meri

Meri and her brother Jeri were found lost and alone on abandoned rural property. It took awhile to coax them out into the open and even more patience to get them close enough to touch. As she always does, Meri follows Jeri's lead in all things. We would love for them to be adopted together, but if not, Meri will need an older, gentle dog to show her the way. 

Once she trusts you, Meri is a loving, sweet girl who likes to be near her human. She loves treats and plays well with other dogs once she gets used to them. We don't think Meri would do well with small children due to her timidness and her Terrier nippiness. She really hasn't been around cats, but a lot of terriers like to chase kitty cats and use them as squeaky toys. 

Meri is spayed and has had all of her vaccinations. She is HW negative and on preventative. For more info, please call 662-342-9448 or email: info@desotoanimalrescue.org

 

About Desoto Animal Rescue Society

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of unwanted, abandoned, and abused pets, giving them a second chance at a loving forever home. All animals taken in receive necessary medical care, vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

We are not a shelter with a facility where you can visit our pets. All rescued pets live in our own homes, where they are evaluated and cared for until they find their ideal adoptive family. We carefully screen prospective homes and require all applicants to go through an adoption application process.

We are not affiliated with the Desoto County Animal Shelter or any governmental agency. We do not receive any taxpayer funds. We operate solely on donations and the revenue we generate from fundraising events. 100% of our incoming funds go directly towards the care of our animals and to pay our vet bills. All other expenses are paid for by our own volunteers.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

We've made it very easy for you to donate one time, set up a recurring payment/sponsorship or do a tribute for someone. Everything is on our website here: info@desotoanimalrescue.org

Our Adoption Process...

All pets are up-to-date on routine vaccinations and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. All dogs are tested heartworm negative and all cats are tested feline aids/feline leukemia negative. We require a pre-adoption application and a home visit. To help cover our veterinary costs, we ask for a $125 adoption donation for dogs and puppies and a $75 adoption donation for cats and kittens.
