Earlier in the week, a frightened dog was found in an abandoned car in Nassau County. The five-year-old Chihuahua had no idea rescuers were actually trying to help her, and when she was initially brought to the Nassau County Animal Services, she was filled with fear.
It didn’t take long before the dog, now named Spice, learned no one was going to harm her, and since then she has settled in and become one of the shelter favorites.
“She loves people and does well with other dogs and she is house trained,” the organization posted on their social media page. “She loves being held and she likes to snuggle.”
Dog found in abandoned car. We found Spice in an abandoned car right here in Nassau County. At first, she wasn’t too happy about being in the shelter, but once she learned we weren’t going to hurt her, she settled down and has become one of the shelter favorites. She is a chihuahua. She is about five years old. She loves people and does well with other dogs and she is house trained. She loves being held and she likes to snuggle. Little Spice is heartworm positive and therefore she is eligible for NCAS’s foster-to-adopt program. Spice can leave the shelter as a “foster pet.” NCAS will supply heartworm medication and all exams and lab work. Once she is heartworm free, she can be adopted. If you know a special person or rescue group who is willing to foster Spice during her treatment, please share her Facebook post. Come by the shelter and meet more of our homeless pets or visit our Facebook page to see photos and descriptions of some our pets. Visiting hours: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 11 – 4, Wednesday 1 – 6 and Saturday 11 -3. Nassau County Animal Services is located at 86078 License Road, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034 (near Target, Petco and Home Depot), 904.530.6150. All of our pets are neutered/spayed, vaccinated and have an registered ID microchip – a $250 savings!
