Mercedes of Newark

mercedes of newark

Mercedes has not given up on finding a great home, but since she's been with us at AHS/Popcorn Park for over a year now and no one has shown much interest in this sweet, senior girl, she's becoming our newest Share A Pet.  She's around 10 years old but still has the spunk of a puppy, so what better place for her than our Animal Haven Farm, where she'll have large living quarters, a huge yard to frolic in, and lots of nice people to take her for walks?

Mercedes and her pal Midnight were surrendered in December, 2019, when their owner became homeless.  Mercedes and Midnight get along fine, but their personalities clash from time to time, so they do not need to be adopted together.  Mercedes has only ever gotten along with Midnight and doesn't care for other pets, hence the reason she's been with us for so long.  She sure does love people though, and is so affectionate, outgoing, and she has such a beautiful personality.  If you can't adopt Mercedes, we hope you'll become her sponsor and give her a little extra love and attention in her golden years!  File#43138
