Meet sweet Meika!
Meika is a female pit mix who was rescued from a high kill shelter. She is approximately 2 years old and weighs about 40-45 lbs. She is in a foster home now with other dogs and children (13 and older) and is wonderful with everyone! Meika also shares her foster home with cats, and she is great with them and interacts with them, but really shows no interest in them. Her foster mom says she has the most amazing temperment and that she can't get enough of her! Her coat feels like silk and even her best photos just don't do this dog justice. She has the cutest spotted ears like a Dalmatian, and her little booty looks like a vanilla and chocolate swirl!
She is working on her housetraining and walking on the leash. She is crate trained and she is doing great with that. She is also excellent in the car as well and enjoys car rides. For her longest car ride to date, 45 minutes, she just laid down in the back seat, and that's where she stayed the whole time. She is just the best dog!
Meika would make an excellent addition to a family.
Meika is spayed, heartworm negative, microchipped and up to date on vaccines. She is ready for her forever home.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company where applicable).
Interested in adopting this fantastic canine? Please visit our website and complete an online application – we respond much quicker to applications than to emails as we receive a voluminous amount of email each day and it’s impossible to respond to all of them in a timely manner even though we try.
An application does not mean you are required to adopt – it just lets us know you are seriously considering this dog for adoption.
QUARANTINE: Paws New England participates and abides by the quarantine rules and regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, RI. In certain instances, a $75.00 quarantine fee will be applicable.
UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, ALL OF OUR DOGS ARE LOCATED OUTSIDE OF RHODE ISLAND BOARDED EITHER PRIVATE FOSTER HOMES OR TRAINING FACILITIES. If a dog is listed as "local", he /she is at one of our foster homes in New England.
We are often asked, "Why would you charge 'so much' for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support ALL rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in discounted vet care, and many people will want to adopt it; an older dog with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt him/her. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others.
