Facts about Mela

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Mela is a beautiful girl that was dumped on the streets of Hempstead NY. When she was picked up by animal control she was skin and bone and horribly neglected. What made it worse was that she has very little sight and was just paralyzed with fear.

The shelter provided a safe warm place for her and treated her poor little body with healthy food, lots to drink and medicine to make her strong again. Sadly nothing could be done to bring her vision back.

As is typical with older dogs that have some special circumstances no one felt she was very adoptable so we were asked to step in and get her out of there so she could have the comfort of a quieter place.

Mela is Wee Wee pad trained and does have peripheral vision. She is very loving and really quiet. She wants nothing more than a lap to cuddle on, a warm bed and a good meal with some delicious treats to live out the rest of her days.

Mela is probably around 9 or 10, and is fully vetted now. She will give you love and ask very little in return.

Please consider Mela, she didn’t ask for the life she got and definitely didn’t deserve to be thrown away like yesterdays trash.

Mela is located in Freeport NY

Adoption fees apply.

About Our Best Friends Animal Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of animal lovers that came together so that we could save more of the voiceless animals that haven't gotten a good start.
All of us work at least one full time job and the rest of our time goes for the little souls that need our help.
We are as dedicated to each other as we are to the animals. Together we are making a difference. We have volunteers who help us on all levels but always need more help socializing and helping with taking dogs to vet appointments and picking them up. Going to the groomer and much more.
There are some who handle networking, mass emailing, etc. Others who help on Facebook. We have fosters who take in our rescues for a period of time, so that a rescued dog learns to live in a household and so that we can get to know the fur baby a little better so they can be placed in their proper furever home ~ also the fosters assist us in getting the animals OUT of the shelters faster & more efficiently. There are also those wonderful people who do volunteer transport !!! That's so so important !! and everyone else, who just likes our page or shares our pictures ~ we are ALL in this together.

Our Adoption Process...

An adoption application must be completed before any meet and greets or extensive information is given out. All of our animals are home fostered and we must be diligent about protecting our volunteers. Our adoption fees range from $0 to $500 and are determined on a per case basis. Our puppies that are to young to be spayed or neutered will be adopted out and a contract will be signed committing the adopter to perform the procedure as soon as the puppy is deemed ready by a veterinarian. This will be done no later than 6 months of age.
Our animals are rescues. We sometimes don't know everything about the animal as they are usually in our care for a short period of time. We disclose EVERYTHING are aware of at the time of adoption. We cannot be responsible for an issue that occurs weeks or months or years after the animal is adopted.
Opening your heart and your home to a rescue animal is a commitment. It is not for as long as the dog is easy to care for, or, for until you get tired of it. It is for the life of that animal. We will be very selective as to who we allow to adopt our angels. We expect you to be open and honest during the adoption process.
