Karina's Story...
Karina came to us malnourished and is gaining weight. She is about 4 years old and weighed less then 3 lbs on arrival.
In order to post on websites, we must choose a breed or breed mix. We choose the breed we think the pet most resembles. The only way to know the actual breed would be to do a DNA test which is too costly for non-profits. You should always choose your pet by the personality, size, and energy level that will best fit your personality and lifestyle.
We post that the pet is housetrained if we were told on intake that they are or if they behave as if they are. In the shelter environment it is hard to determine if they actually are and even if they were, they will usually have to be re-trained when they go to a home. This is usually easy if you are consistent in when you take them out and use positive training methods. We can provide tips upon request.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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