Facts about Nikita
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Hi my name is Nikita! I am a female Chihuahua who was brought in as a stray. I was VERY scared and timid when I first came in but I've learned to trust people and am coming out of my shell. I'm not a fan of wet/cold grass and would much rather be cuddled up in someone's jacket to stay warm and protected, I am a sweet little girl who would love a new home to call my own and a new family to cuddle up with. I am available for adoption from Oceana County Animal Shelter. If interested, please call the shelter at 231-861-5395 and leave a message to be placed on this dog's adoption list. No obligation, but it reserves your place in line on the list. The shelter will contact persons in the order they are on the list. ** Ask about possible Adoption Transportation assistance if you are not in the local area.** The adoption fee is $95 and you receive certificates for $50 towards spay/neuter and $10 towards rabies vaccination.
Animal Control Staff Currently, we have only two county employees who work within the Department of Animal Control. Both are highly qualified and caring individuals.
