Nutmeg's Story...
Hi, my name is Nutmeg and I am a fun and happy girl! I was so happy to have people save me and my mom, Ginger. We had an owner and she was evicted from the apartment where we all lived. She packed up her stuff and left. She just left us there. We had no food and no one there to take care of us. We would run to the windows to look outside and people just passed by, not knowing that we were all alone. The property caretaker came in to find us and he was so nice. He brought us food and let us out to go potty. He called our former owner and she said that she didn't care what he did with us, so to just take us to the pound. The nice man couldn't take us to a place that was so full and found Finding Shelter for us! He wanted to guarantee that we would be safe! Being saved was the best day of our lives. Now we need to find a forever home where we can live forever and never be left behind. It would make our hearts happy to find a home together. Having both of us would be no extra trouble. We love each other and are perfect companions for one another and for you! Please take a chance on Ginger and Nutmeg! You will be so happy that you did and we will be forever grateful!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nutmeg, a Norristown Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Norristown, or seeking a Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Norristown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Norristown 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 Norristown 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!
