Dutchess's Story...
Hi my name is Dutchess. I am an 8 yr young Maltese. I am a bit shy at 1st. I do well with small dogs like me, cats, not sure about kids as I have never met any. A quieter home with another small dog would be awesome. I am not much of a cuddler, but am learning that it is kinda nice. maybe I just had the wrong lap all this time.

**If interested please fill out an application on our website www.mendingheartsrescue.org and we can set up a time to meet them, as we are a foster based rescue**

**adoptions fees include spay/neuter, microchip, vaccines, heartworm check for dogs, FeLV test for cats, and flea/heartworm prevention**

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dutchess, a Rockford Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in Rockford, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in Rockford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rockford already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Rockford breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maltese breeders who help with Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rockford paves the way for another one to be saved.
