Rescue Me ID: 17-05-02-00131Georgie and Gracie (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet sweethearts Georgie and Gracie. These babies are the beloved pets of a local senior couple, who, due to health issues, had to move into assisted living and unfortunately could not take their beloved pets with them. Thus, these two fur-babies are in need of a new forever home. Georgie and Gracie MUST remain together as they move forward into this next stage of their life. They are 7 years of age, currently weighing in at about 18 lbs. Both of these babies are as sweet and lovable as can be. They know how to use a doggie door, and they also get along well with the family cat. (In the pic, Georgie is on the left, and Gracie is on ... (Read More)the right.) In terms of medical, they have received wonderful care throughout their lives. They are spayed/neutered and are up-to-date on all their shots, as well as flea and tick preventative and HW preventative. Gracie is diabetic, however, needs insulin shots twice a day (which she accepts with no problem at all). Gracie also gets her sugar levels monitored routinely at our local vet office; and we have been told by our vet that Gracie's recent checkup went very well, with excellent results. While Gracie will need insulin injections every day (along with routine sugar level monitoring), she is otherwise in great health, and so is Georgie. If you are interested in adopting BOTH Georgie and Gracie, please go to Register and then log back on with username and password to complete the Safe at Last online adoption application. Please be sure to fill out the application completely. Upon reviewing your application, we will contact you by email. So, please be on the lookout for an email from seeking to set up a time to speak with you to commence the review process. If we do not have a completed Safe at Last application from you in our system, we cannot consider you. NO exceptions. Thank you for considering welcoming these sweet babies into your heart and home.
