Meet Pretty Girl
Milwaukee Pets Alive focuses on animals in need of a second chance, and Pretty Girl exemplifies that. Pretty Girl is a 2 year old female buff colored domestic short hair with stunning, big gold eyes. Pretty Girl was abused or tortured with burns to her body, ears, extremities, and whiskers. She was also extremely emaciated - weighing only 4 lbs on the day she was rescued. She caught the eye of, then quickly stole the heart of MPA’s Executive Director while at MADACC in early June because the most awe-inspiring part of this little girl’s story is that despite having gone through so much at the hands of humans, she was so friendly and loving - incessantly rubbing her cage (or anyone that came to open it) with exuberance and putting her head in your had to let you know she wasn’t done receiving petting.
No innocent creature should know such cruelty, so Milwaukee Pets Alive rescued her so she would know something else - love. Pretty Girl was placed in an experienced foster home, perfect to care for her as she began her road to recovery.
It’s amazing what love can do. Look no further than Pretty Girl to see how love has transformed this sweet being. In the 2 months since her rescue, her burned skin has sloughed off, her singed fur is being replaced with soft fur, her whiskers are growing back, and her weight is increasing. The indomitable spirit that never dimmed from this gentle soul, even during her darkest hour, only grows brighter from the extraordinary love and care her foster family provides her.

Looking for their forever...
Cheech and Chong have been waiting for their forever home for over a year! They need YOUR help to find their forever family.
Chong (white), 5 years old, and Cheech (brown), 3 years old, will steal your heart (and your lap - they are super snuggly and if there is an available lap, they will both jump in for cuddling).
The bond between this pair of chihuahuas is one of the most endearing things you will ever see. The boys can’t be more than a few feet apart without looking for the whereabouts of the other. They are always seen snuggling with each other (perfect to keep each other company while you are away at work). Cheech and Chong also love exercise! They are always very excited when the leashes and harnesses come out because that means its walk time! And the boys like long walks (yep, little dogs like long walks too).
When they settle in after some fresh air, Chong will belly up for some belly rubs while Cheech will show off his roll-over skills for a treat.
Cheech and Chong would do great in a variety of homes - including with apartment and condo dwellers! (However, the boys are looking for a home without small children due to their size). 2 hearts, 4 ears, and 10 lbs ready to keep you smiling every day. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can provide a together forever for Cheech and Chong, or tell someone you know that this dynamic duo is available for adoption!
