Trinket's Story...

Trinket is a darling little 15 year old lady who was taken in a neglect case. She was one of several dogs who were covered in fleas, infected teeth, hair loss...but she is an odd combination of doted upon pet and neglected little thing. She loves to be toted around and snuggled. She expects you to either hand feed her or at least talk to her while she is eating. She needs to eat soft food as she is now nearly toothless after a desperately needed dental. She needs to be in a home with no children. A loving senior who is happy to just hold and love her would be ideal. In spite of everything she is in overall decent health. Heart and lungs are fine. She is just a little light on the hair front and lacking in teeth. but certainly not lacking in love! Adoption fee $75. Application and home check required.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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