Nutmeg's Story...

Little Nutmeg has probably been neglected all her life. The Monterey Humane Society actually requested her from a Southern CA shelter, but when she arrived they decided she was too old to bother to try to place. Since she was going to be put to sleep, Discarded Miracles took her in, only to discover she had a large growth on her tiny back and rotten teeth. We raised the money to remove the growth and the teeth, and Nutmeg is bright-eyed and ready for the next step!

Here is one of those precious opportunities to give a mistreated dog a good home for the remaining years of her life. Despite her neglect, Nutmeg has good eyesight and lots of energy, and is very friendly. She chows down on soft food as if she had a full set of choppers. She will be a great companion for someone capable of seeing beyond the obvious.

Please email us at or call Rob (after 5 pm if on a weekday) at 714-906-5942 for a chance to meet this wonderful spirit.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Riverside 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 Riverside 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!
