I am already spayed, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Hi my name is Cricket! I used to live with so many other dogs and thankfully I was saved and have been learning how to live in luxury in my foster home. I have lived with dogs my whole life, and I love to be near them! I am shy at first but will warm up, just like I did with my foster mom. Since I never got real training I am still working on using the potty outside. I will need help to learn about going outdoors, I get so scared of the outdoors, Its big and I'm just learning about it, so for that reason, I MUST have a fenced yard that is secure. I am so sweet and I will make a wonderful lap warmer once I learn you love me! Please think about giving me a place in your heart and home, I think we both would be SO happy!!! Chihuahua Rescue Indiana says that anyone would be lucky to have Cricket, she has such a sweet spirit. She is around 9-10 years old. She was pulled from a hoarding situation and she is used to being around other small dogs, so we think a home with other small dogs would be best. She will eventually be a great lap dog, but will take time to warm up. She has never been around cats but due to her personality we don't anticipate any problems. She does well with kids, but will do better in a home with children old enough to understand that she will take time to warm up to them. Her adoption fee is $250.00. This includes her vaccines, dental, spay, microchip and she is current on flea and heartworm prevention. Her Seniors for Seniors fee is $200 Updated 10/31/16. crif/SF
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.
