Penelope's Story...
*In a nervous voice* H-h-hi… I’m Penelope. Strangers make me nervous… so please bear with me. I was brought to DCHS as a stray with my mom. We arrived covered in fleas and were given a bath within the first 5 minutes of walking through the front door. After our bath we were snuggled in towels and once dry, treated for the fleas so we could be free of those nasty little buggers! We have been happily flee-free ever since. I am about 4 years old, and my mom is only about a year older than I am. After we were here for a few weeks, someone who used to know us called the shelter to let them know about how old we are, and that we are a bonded mother-daughter pair. I am much more comfortable when I have my mom by my side. She has always been with me and I can’t imagine my life without her. My mom can be so silly and playful, she always makes me feel happy and at ease. I’m a bit shy, she is outgoing… together we make the perfect pair!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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