Greta Garbo's Story...
I'm ready for my close-up Mr. DeMille!!! I am Greta Garbo and I just had my teeth cleaned and polished so I am ready for a new home. I was living in a home where they decided they had too many dogs, so I came to Chihuahua Rescue to find a new home that I can call my own. I am a robust brindle girl weighing in at 14 lbs. My foster mom has me on a diet to help me lose a little bit of weight. I don't like that much but she said I need my girly figure back. I guess that might make me even more ready for the movies, right? I am about 3 years old, and I am settled and happy to keep someone company or keep their lap warm. I am also pretty quiet and content to just keep my people company. I like to go outside when the weather is nice and my foster mom says I am pretty good about pottying outside but I still like to use the potty pads in the house. I am working on learning how to ask to go out. I don't know why my foster mom can't read my mind, but I guess she wants me to be able to tell her that I want out. If you think you have room in your heart and home for me, please fill out an adoption application. I will be waiting to hear from you soon. My adoption fee is $250 (Seniors for Seniors $200) and I do require a fenced yard. I don't mind walking in a leash but I prefer to have my freedom to explore in the yard. Updated 10/31/16.
About Chihuahua Rescue Indiana- Indianapolis Chapter
Chihuahua Rescue Indiana Inc. is a non profit, all volunteer rescue working with Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. The pets are housed in individual volunteer foster homes, not kennels or shelters until they are adopted permanently. We get to know our animals and therefore can tell the potential adopter what the traits of the animal are and what home would be the best for the pet. We are dedicated to the adoption, education, rescue and transportation of the Chihuahua breed. We believe that every Chihuahua deserves a loving home.
Donate to Our Rescue Group...
Donations are up to the individual and are made to a not for profit organization.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We hold adoption events at local Petsmarts, Pet Supply Plus, and Petcos. The dates are fluid and they do coincide with the nationally advertised adoption events at the locales.
Our Adoption Process...
**If you are unable to pay the adoption fee, we are unable to place a dog in your care. Being unable to meet the financial obligations of pet care (recurrent or emergent) is one of many reasons why so many of these pets end up in rescue. It's not lack of love.** We require an adoption inquiry, and then we will check references. We also check with vets. If the person is not LOCAL then we will partner with a local animal control or Humane Society to do a home visit and give us the go ahead to adopt. There are adoption fees associated with the costs of veterinary care of the pet. We require an adoption contract to be signed to finalize the adoption process and we have an agreement that all our pets are to be Chihuahua Rescue Indiana Inc. pets for LIFE. In other words, in the event that they can not stay in their adoptive home they are not to be surrendered to another individual or rescue.
