Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gino, a Tijeras Basenji/Chihuahua puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji/Chihuahua for sale in Tijeras, or seeking a Basenji/Chihuahua puppy from a breeder in Tijeras.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tijeras 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 Tijeras 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 Basenji/Chihuahua breeders who help with Basenji/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tijeras paves the way for another one to be saved.
