Taco's Story...
Hi there! My name's Taco, what's yours? I am a 13 year old chihuahua who's looking for my forever home. Unfortunately, my owner recently decided to move and could not take me with him. I really miss him, but hopefully someone else will be willing to adopt me and give me the love I deserve for the rest of my life! Could that someone be YOU?

I do have some special needs that you should be aware of. I am mostly, if not completely blind, so extra caution should be taken with me around steps. I am a friendly little boy, and love attention. I get along well with other dogs. Speaking of other best friend Paco is also at the shelter. Paco is also a 13 year old chihuahua. Since we have been together our entire lives we need a home where we can continue to be together. Do you have room for 2 sweet little senior boys like us?!

The shelter is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1-5, Tuesday and Thursday from 1-8, and Saturday from 10-2. Just call ahead to make sure we're at the shelter and not at a vet appointment or in a foster home. We'll be waiting to meet you!

You can see some of our adoptable pets almost every Saturday at the Petsmart in Greensburg from noon to 6pm and some Sundays too. All adoption fees include spay/neuter and up-to-date vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Youngwood 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 Youngwood 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 Youngwood paves the way for another one to be saved.
