Sam's Story...
He is came to us from Pima Animal Care Center in Tucson. His life before PACC & now AZCR, was not so great. He lived outside in Sells, AZ and was turned into the shelter by his owners because they didn’t want him anymore. He was so covered in ticks, he developed tick fever; he has since been treated by PACC and is on medication. But he's not letting that get him down!! Here's what a volunteer at PACC had to say about sweet Sam: "Sam is a sweet, tiny little fellow….just right for cuddling. He’s a short-haired Chi, approximately 5 years old, neutered, and weighs about 8.5 pounds. Sam gets along with other dogs, appears to be housebroken, and he is gentle, calm, and quiet. In spite of all he been through and the fact he doesn’t feel very well, he’s loving, happy, and enjoys walking and sitting in laps. He also enjoys turkey dogs and, in case you didn’t notice, he’s downright adorable." We can all agree on that! Sam will continue his treatment for tick fever, in his foster home and will be available for adoption when he is cleared medically. Please email BJ

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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