Lost Siberian Husky: Meeka


Meeka is a female Siberian husky who went missing December 6 in Cliffside near the Rutherford County/Cleveland County line. She is very sweet and friendly with all animals. She is medium sized (about 45 pounds) and should be wearing a yellow reflective collar with tags. The phone number on the tag is not connected anymore but I can be reached at 828-305-4976. She is fully vaccinated so she is not a threat to any other dogs. She has a full white three-leafed clover pattern on her face and is white and black. Each eye is half blue and half brown. She answers to "Meeka" and should come when called. Her picture is attached. Thank you so much! We are offering a substantial reward, no questions asked.

What to do to find your pet:

If you have lost a pet in Rutherford County, the best thing you can do is to get the word out in a hurry. If you have a picture of your pet, make flyers with large print of pet's name, identifying marks or characteristics. Include the date and place your pet was last seen. Put them in places like the stores and Post Office near you. Post them at street corners. Call the local vets and describe your pet to them and then take posters for the veterinary offices. Check your flyers regularly to be sure they are still where you placed them and that they remain in good condition.

If you wish to have us post information about your pet, please tell us the pet's name, breed, age, sex, size, where last seen, any other identifying information, your phone number and email address; and attach any photos. Send this in an email to catlady199@yahoo.com.
