Ellie Mae's Story...
Ellie is a sweet, but shy, cutie that spent over a month living on the grounds of a high school in Albuquerque. We trapped her in November 2015 and she is in foster care, learning to trust her humans and live with a family (we aren't sure that she was part of a family, a real family, prior to our getting her). She is great with other dogs! She is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccines.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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