Plenty of my friends are looking

NIKO's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

NIKO's Story...
NIKO (ID# A018363) is a neutered male, tan Chihuahua. The shelter staff think he is about 5 years old. NIKO is a typical little chihuahua who really needs to get to know you first, then he is all cuddles and kisses. He could do well with a companion dog. No children under the age of 14 in the household please.

STARTING THE ADOPTION PROCESS:
You need to be 18 years or older, complete an application http://www.petprojectfoundation.org/dogadoption.pdf, and be interviewed. It is strongly recommended that all members of your household and any dogs you have at home be brought in to socialize with the dog you wish to adopt in our play yard. You must be able to verify with your landlord that you may have a pet if you are renting. We reserve the right to deny the adoption of any pet for any reason. Also any additional requirements for the specific pet you are interested in adopting need to be met. We adopt to the best home, not necessarily the first application turned in.

Applications are only accepted by FAX (949-366-4765), mail or in person. Sorry, no applications through the Internet. The adoption fee for dogs is $125, which covers the following: spay or neuter, microchip, current shots, flea treatment if required, "New Owner" folder packed with helpful information, and one free basic health examination within 5 days of adoption from a veterinarian on our list.

Please call 949-595-8899 to check if your desired pet is still available or the status of your application. Shelter Hours: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, & Saturday: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Wednesday: 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM. Sunday: Noon - 3:00 PM. We are CLOSED Mondays. We are very proud of our shelter, it is clean, welcoming, freeway close, and was voted "Best Place to Adopt" by the Orange Coast Magazine!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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