About Mallory

Adoption Fee: $250

Mallory is an Alaskan Malamute, born in February 2019. She weighs about 80 pounds and came to Heartland in October 2019 with her brother Marmaduke from a breeder who was closing his business and where they did not receive much socialization. In foster care Mallory has learned quickly: she is solid on her potty training, seeks out her crate for meals and sleep time, and enjoys being touched and petted. She is still quite impulsive on her leash walks... but has shown improvement; she is quite skeptical of jumping into a car. Mallory is highly treat-motivated and nicely follows ‘sit’ and ‘crate’ commands.

Even with all this progress, she is not ready to free roam in a house and will require a contained area when inside, preferably more than just a crate. From there she can continue to learn about appropriate inside behaviors.

Mallory requires an adopter with breed experience and a secure physical set-up (minimum 5-foot fence, large yard, and a suitable indoor space), the determination to continue her training, and the stamina to manage and exercise this lovely and willing dog.

She is nicely partnered with her littermate Marmaduke and a home together will be strongly preferred. Cats and small dogs are not an option and it is not clear that Mallory will accept other dogs.

All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative ( puppies age 7 months and older) and microchipped. An adult dog's adoption fee is $200.  There is a $5 fee for credit/debit cards.

They are good climbers, are curious and like to interact with people. They live approx. 2-3 years and do best with a cagemate of the same gender.  They need a habitat with a solid surface and prefer a multi-level home.  A habitat should be large enough for a food dish, water bottle, a hiding house and climbing toys.  Solid surface exercise wheels can be used. Their front teeth never stop growing so they need chew toys. show less

BunBun is a very friendly 8 pound female English Spot.  She is approximately 2 years old and doing very well using her litter box.  BunBun has been spayed and is looking for her forever home.  We do NOT know how she would do with another rabbit at this time.   IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADOPT THIS PET PLEASE FILL OUT OUR ONLINE APPLICATION: http://www.heartlandsmallanimalrescue.org/small-animal-adoptionfoster-application Adoption fee: $50 single rabbit/$80 bonded pair (does not include habitat) Interested in adoption?  Please email smallanimals@heartlandsmallanimalrescue.org or fill out an application online at http://www.heartlandsmallanimalrescue.org/small-animal-adoptionfoster-application Contact JoAnn at 574-400-5633 for more information about this rabbit and where you can meet our other adoptable small animals.  All of our adoptable rabbits have been spayed/neutered.  This simple surgery, though relatively expensive,  is not just for population control.  It also eliminates territorial and domination issues.   They no longer  need to be aggressive in marking or protecting a territory or winning a mate.  More importantly,  spay/neuter surgery eliminates the source for gender cancers later in life.  In days past,  the life expectancy of a rabbit was only two years, whereas, those that have been fixed and  are provided a safe habitat with quality food now average 10 years and many live into their late teens.   Not only is their life expectancy longer, but their quality of life is significantly improved. Heartland Small Animal Rescue also does not adopt to outdoor hutches.  Our rabbits, in addition to being fixed,  have been litter box trained or are in the training process.  Rabbits are very neat and tidy, much like a  cat and do well indoors as house rabbits.  They make great companion pets and enjoy spending  time with their 'family'.  We do recommend a house cage / condo  exercise pen for your domestic rabbit to  keep them out of trouble while you are away or sleeping.   The size of the cage/condo will be  dependant on the time you are away.  The longer they will be confined, the larger it needs to be  to provide room for exercise, litter box, hay and fresh water. show less

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADOPT THIS PET PLEASE FILL OUT OUR ONLINE APPLICATION: http://www.heartlandsmallanimalrescue.org/small-animal-adoptionfoster-application Adoption fee:$20 bonded pair / $40 with habitat Interested in adoption?  Please email smallanimals@heartlandsmallanimalrescue.org or fill out an application online at http://www.heartlandsmallanimalrescue.org/small-animal-adoptionfoster-application Contact JoAnn at 574-400-5633 for more information about this chinchilla and where you can meet our other adoptable small animals.  INFO: Expected Life Span: 5-8 years is typical, although up to 10 is possible. Size: Body is about 5-7 inches long; the tail is another 5-6 inches. Behavior: Degus are very social animals and can become very tame if handled from an early age. However, they do best if kept with other degus because of their social nature. They are playful and curious. Without social interaction and opportunity for exercise, they can be aggressive and neurotic. Cage: Degus need a large cage. For a couple of degus a minimum of 24 inches by 18 inches by 24 inches tall is about the minimum size. Larger is definitely better and large multilevel cages such as those made for ferrets or chinchillas are ideal. The cage should be made of wire since degus are avid chewers. However, the cage must have a solid (not wire) floor and shelves and ledges should also be made of a solid surface since degus are prone to foot problems. Bedding and Nest Box: As with other small animals, avoid cedar or pine shavings. Provide an absorbent layer of pet-safe bedding in the bottom of the cage. A nest box is necessary to give degus a sense of security - a wooden box about 6 by 8 by 6 inches is appropriate and if it has a flat roof the degus can use it as a shelf to sit on. Nesting material (tissues or paper towel, hay, shredded paper) should also be provided. Other Cage Furnishings: Degus should have a solid surface exercise wheel (11 inches is a good size) in their cage. Thick branches can be added to the cage and will offer both exercise (climbing) and chewing opportunities. Thick cotton ropes can also be used for climbing toys. Using heavy ceramic dishes is a good idea (chew proof), and a water bottle with a sipper tube can be used for water. You may need to get a chew guard for the water bottle. Dust Bath: Like chinchillas, degus need regular dust baths to keep their skin and coat in good condition. Provide a shallow bowl with an inch or two of chinchilla bath dust (sand) a couple of times a week (leave in the cage for a half hour or so). Chew Toys: Since degus are such determined chewers, it is vital to provide them with lots of opportunities to chew. A variety of wood blocks and chews as well as branches can be provided. Willow balls and toys made for rabbits are great for degus, and cotton rope and wood toys designed for large parrots are also a good choice. A mineral or salt block designed for rodents can be attached to the cage. Feeding: The basis of a good degu diet is a combination of high quality chinchilla or guinea pig pellets, and rodent blocks. Grass hay (such as timothy hay) should be available all the time (you can get small hay racks to make this easier), and a small amount of alfalfa hay can also be offered. A variety of fresh vegetables can be given, especially sweet potato (peeled, uncooked), carrots, broccoli, leafy greens, green beans, and dandelion leaves (must be pesticide-free). These should be offered in small quantities only or they may cause diarrhea. Vegetables that are members of the cabbage family (cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale) should be fed only in very small quantities and some degu experts advise avoiding them altogether. Degus are prone to diabetes and are designed to eat a diet high in roughage and low in carbohydrates. Do not let your degus get overweight or obese, and keep sugary foods to a minimum. Fruit should be avoided as a treat (including raisins) due to their high sugar content. For treats, most degus relish seeds (e.g. sunflower seeds), peanuts, and whole nuts in the shell. However, these should only be an occasional treat, due to the high fat content. Make sure you change the water in their bottles regularly - they often do not drink a lot but it is important that they have a supply of fresh clean water available at all times. Important Note about Degu Tails Never grab or try to pick up a degu by the tail. They can easily lose part of their tail and have a messy injury as a result. Shedding their tail is probably a natural defense of wild degus to escape if caught by the tail. show less
