Waffle's Story...
Waffle is a special little girl rescued from a hoarding situation where over 100 small dogs were living in an apartment! When we first got her she had never been on a leash and was so terrified she was extremely defensive and wouldn't let anyone touch her. After only a day in foster, she realized we were trying to help her and her sweet submissive personality came through! She has a horrible case of demodectic (non-contagious) mange which is being treated and she is looking better already. She is still very nervous with new people and situations but is an adorable playful puppy once she bonds.

Similar to dogs rescued from puppy mills, these dogs have had minimal handling and socialization and are timid but sweet natured. They love other dogs and are looking for calmer adult households with at least one other dog to help them feel more comfortable. They have never been walked on leashes or exposed to anything outside of that apartment so will require some patience and socialization as they adjust to the "real world". Please submit an application if you are interested.

We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Waffle, a Oak Ridge 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 Ridge, or seeking a Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Oak Ridge.

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