Facts about Meatball

Meatball is our 4 year old rat terrier / jack russell terrier mix. He is heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, and neutered. He would do best in a home without children or cats, and is good with most other dogs. We rescued Meatball from an abusive hoarding situation in NYC. Due to this traumatic experience which he spent the first two years of his life, he has PTSD. Meatball is a wonderful and sweet dog once he gets to know you, but until he does he is very untrusting of people. As someone who has known Meatball since day one, I 100% believe this little man can live a happy life in a home. As long as he is given a chance with a patient and understanding owner. I have gained Meatball's full trust, and he is the sweetest boy. He runs up to me, rolls around in my lap, and snuggles (something we couldn't imagine him doing when we first met him). He is very willing to trust, as long as the person is meeting him halfway. If you are interested in learning more about Meatball or scheduling a meet and greet, please contact us!

About Recycled Paws Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We started our rescue group a little over 5 years ago and most of us have been rescuing animals all our lives in various ways.

We are 100% volunteer based and have volunteers from all walks of lives; we have learning disabled adults from the community (KEON center), Disabled VETS from the Veterans hospital down the street and kids from the age of 12 and up.

We are a group of people who feel that the southern shelters who "gas" puppies and dogs as a means to euthanize them are cruel and inhumane. We strive to save as many animals as we can from this horrible fate.

When we pull animals from the shelters we have them vetted and transported to us. We then quarantine them for no less than 7 days and have them vetted with our vet in Mahopac.
We then socialize them and after they are cleared to be adopted we adopt them to the public through a Grooming - Retail store and PetSmart.

We always need volunteers, foster homes and donations of various kinds.

Feel free to come see us or become a member of our rescue website. We are in the process of starting our Newsletter "Rescue Ramblings"

Our Adoption Process...

We are a 501c3 pending (not for profit) organization and do not profit from our adoption fees.
Each potential adopter has to submit a "Pre-Adoption" form and we check references - both vet and personal. We require proof that you are allowed to adopt and own a pet in your rental property.
We check with your current vet that the pet you adopt has been to see them for a check up in the first 2 weeks you have the pet.
If the pet you adopt is not spayed/neutered we have a contract that in a reasonable time frame you will have this done. We give you possible low cost spay/neuter alternatives.
