Cheddar's Story...
Dynamic Duo Lands at the Coronado Animal Care Facility

The teen Chihuahuas Cheddar and Chive came into the Coronado Animal Care Facility as strays. It was obvious from the moment we met them that they are great pals and were probably litter mates.

Life is still brand new to them and they are getting used to their new surroundings and taking time to get to know everyone. They are overcoming their initial shyness as they actively explore, romp and play. Their antics are sure to entertain you!

Their curiosity keeps them busy and they definitely have things to do and places to go. Treats and attention from their human pals are on top of their list of favorite things.

A home together for this delightful pair would be lovely, although they can be adopted separately. Come meet Cheddar and Chive soon to see for yourself what fun you will add to your home when you adopt them.

You can meet Cheddar and Chive any day at the Coronado Animal Care Facility between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm (except holidays). The Coronado Animal Care Facility is located at 1395 First Street at the south end of the Ferry Landing complex.

If you are interested in adopting, you must first complete a dog adoption application and meet with a PAWS of Coronado Dog Adoption Counselor. Or, you may complete the online dog adoption application.

If you have any questions, please contact the Dog Adoption Team online or call Karen at 619-437-0220.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cheddar, a Coronado Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in Coronado, or seeking a Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Coronado.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Coronado already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Coronado breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Coronado paves the way for another one to be saved.
