Facts about Momo

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: White - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Here is Momo. She came in around the end of August 2016 from flooding in Tennessee. She was in horrible shape. Could barely walk and was severely depressed. She is 15 plus years old and weighs approximately 7-8 lbs. She has a huge benign tumor, however cannot have surgery due to her heart murmur. She is totally deaf and has very limited sight. She's been on thyroid medicine for several months now and her tumor has shrunk to about a third of its size. She feels much better now and is a happy little dog. She gets around well and loves her crate and doggie beds with fluffy blankets in them. She is trained to potty outside and uses puppy pads but sometimes misses the pads because of her eye sight. She is a sweet little senior and aside from her daily medicine is pretty low maintenance.
Momo is up-to-date with her vaccines, however, she is not spayed as she cannot have surgery. She will have to go to a home with no unaltered males. She is good with dogs but not children, and cats are unknown.

About Chihuahua Rescue Indiana- Indianapolis Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Chihuahua Rescue Indiana Inc. is a non profit, all volunteer rescue working with Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. The pets are housed in individual volunteer foster homes, not kennels or shelters until they are adopted permanently. We get to know our animals and therefore can tell the potential adopter what the traits of the animal are and what home would be the best for the pet. We are dedicated to the adoption, education, rescue and transportation of the Chihuahua breed. We believe that every Chihuahua deserves a loving home.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Donations are up to the individual and are made to a not for profit organization.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at local Petsmarts, Pet Supply Plus, and Petcos. The dates are fluid and they do coincide with the nationally advertised adoption events at the locales.

Our Adoption Process...

**If you are unable to pay the adoption fee, we are unable to place a dog in your care. Being unable to meet the financial obligations of pet care (recurrent or emergent) is one of many reasons why so many of these pets end up in rescue. It's not lack of love.**
We require an adoption inquiry, and then we will check references. We also check with vets. If the person is not LOCAL then we will partner with a local animal control or Humane Society to do a home visit and give us the go ahead to adopt.
There are adoption fees associated with the costs of veterinary care of the pet. We require an adoption contract to be signed to finalize the adoption process and we have an agreement that all our pets are to be Chihuahua Rescue Indiana Inc. pets for LIFE. In other words, in the event that they can not stay in their adoptive home, they are not to be surrendered to another individual or rescue.
