Neko's Story...
Neko: For the month of March, Neko’s adoption fee is only $125. He’s neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative and on preventative.
Neko has been with us since 4-25-12. From Kansas, Neko and his partner Mallory (who has been adopted, now Maya) were removed from a bad situation. Terribly underweight, unsocialized and frightened, it took Neko a while to acclimate to us. Once he realizes you’re not going to hurt him, and that you’re the person who doles out the food and treats, Neko becomes your best buddy. Heartworm positive, Neko recovered from treatment and is in good health. In his 6 years, Neko has not had an easy life. He deserves a chance to sleep in a soft bed, and live a life treated with respect. If you have a secure fenced yard, or a pet safe basement/garage, that is going to be Neko’s preference of where to hang out while you aren’t home. He is not going to tolerate a crate. Typical Malamute, Neko cannot live with cats, male dogs, nor other small pets. A large boy at 80+ lbs, we cannot adopt Neko to a home with small children as he’d likely knock a child over. Chances are he would need to be the only pet in the household.

Hi, my name is Neko. I came in with my sister Mallory, all the way from Kansas. At first I don’t trust people. You can’t blame me, I’ve not had an easy 5 years. Once I get to know you, I’m a big teddy bear. It’s best if I’m the only pet in the household. Plus, I’m a big guy so you’d need a large house. My last place I was tied outside, and didn’t get fed very often. Then a darn mosquito bit me, and I tested positive for heartworm. Once I got to the rescue, I was treated and the medicine took care of the worms. I think I’d like it best if I could be outside during the day while you are at work, and come inside at night to spend time with you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Neko, a Augusta County Alaskan Malamute dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Alaskan Malamute for sale in Augusta County, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute dog from a breeder in Augusta County.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Augusta County 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 Augusta County 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 Alaskan Malamute breeders who help with Alaskan Malamute rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Augusta County paves the way for another one to be saved.
