Marvin's Story...
Marvin the Chihuahua was picked up as a stray in Peotone, IL about 2 months ago. He is about 9 months to a year - could be older - but not sure. He is such a lover boy! Super sweet and very well behaved in the car - and on the leash. Marvin seemed happy too! Marvin is very treat motivated and actually sat on command for a treat. Marvin is a bit underweight and is currently on high nutrient pet food to increase his weight. He is up to date on shots, been spayed and is house trained. If you are interested in Marvin, please contact Angela, our Canine Adoption Coordinator, at for more info. Please note, we do not have a building, so there are no "viewing hours". Please email for an application as our volunteers may not be able to return your call promptly. Thank you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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