Penelope's Story...


Meet Lacey (the chocolate chihuahua) and Penelope (the cream chihuahua). Unfortunately, their human dad recently passed away and no family members are able to care for them. We happily took these two senior girls in and are now hoping we can find a foster or adopter. Penelope is 8 years old. She has an issue with her pancreas, so she has to stay on a very healthy diet and cannot have any human food at all because it makes her very ill. Lacey is about 12 years old and had a dental with a lot of teeth pulled shortly before their dad passed away because he loved her very much. Both the girls are a little scared but extremely sweet. They have no idea what is going on or why they have been switched around from place to place among family members and then to their TXCR foster. The girls seem very lost, and we would like to keep them together if possible. Both weigh under 5 pounds and will be wonderful snuggle bugs given some time. They will use potty pads indoors and also know how to use a pet door to go potty but only if the door opens to a securely fenced yard so they don't get lost.

If you would like to adopt Lacey and Penelope, please fill out an application at Lacey and Penelope are part of our Seniors for Seniors program, meaning their adoption fee will be waived with an approved application by the right senior human. :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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