Velma's Story...
We'll get new pics up asap, but that little black smudge in the picture is Velma, an adorable 5-1/2 pound pure chi who is waiting for a forever family - but no small kids, please, because of her tiny size. Velma is a sweet, fun-loving little girl who escaped the shelter with Maxine (the cream color little girl) and is now in foster care, enjoying a nice warm bed and a fenced in yard. She is a playful little sprite, sleeps peacefully in her crate at night, is spayed and UTD and ready to become yours

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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