Chico was turned over to a Northern KY, shelter in 2012 and was then taken in by Chihuahua Rescue Indiana. Chico, like all dogs taken in by the Rescue, got his medical needs seen to and was adopted after spending some time at the Rescue. Chico is approximately 5 years old and has found his way back into the rescue (after his adopter, who loved and cared for him deeply got sick). Chico is a lovable little guy and loves to curl up next to you and give kisses. Chico is about an 11# dog and is as sweet as they come. Like most small dogs Chico needed some dental care which he got promptly but during that time he had blood work done and found that he has some kidney issues and because of that he is on a special diet. Chico is fed a diet of fresh organic fruits and vegetables along with K/D. The adoption fee for Chico is $200. Chico came into the rescue with his housemate Skeeter so if you'd like to adopt both of these sweet little guys together the adoption fee for BOTH pets is $350. Chico hasn't been around kids so we are unsure how he would do but he is a sweet loving little guy. Chico has a low energy level although he does get wound up sometimes for the most part he is quiet and calm. Chico is crate trained however his foster mom allows him free range of the house when she is at home. Visit Chico at his new facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ChicoandSkeeter - see ya there
About Chihuahua Rescue Indiana- Indianapolis Chapter
Chihuahua Rescue Indiana Inc. is a non profit, all volunteer rescue working with Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. The pets are housed in individual volunteer foster homes, not kennels or shelters until they are adopted permanently. We get to know our animals and therefore can tell the potential adopter what the traits of the animal are and what home would be the best for the pet. We are dedicated to the adoption, education, rescue and transportation of the Chihuahua breed. We believe that every Chihuahua deserves a loving home.
Donate to Our Rescue Group...
Donations are up to the individual and are made to a not for profit organization.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We hold adoption events at local Petsmarts, Pet Supply Plus, and Petcos. The dates are fluid and they do coincide with the nationally advertised adoption events at the locales.
Our Adoption Process...
**If you are unable to pay the adoption fee, we are unable to place a dog in your care. Being unable to meet the financial obligations of pet care (recurrent or emergent) is one of many reasons why so many of these pets end up in rescue. It's not lack of love.** We require an adoption inquiry, and then we will check references. We also check with vets. If the person is not LOCAL then we will partner with a local animal control or Humane Society to do a home visit and give us the go ahead to adopt. There are adoption fees associated with the costs of veterinary care of the pet. We require an adoption contract to be signed to finalize the adoption process and we have an agreement that all our pets are to be Chihuahua Rescue Indiana Inc. pets for LIFE. In other words, in the event that they can not stay in their adoptive home they are not to be surrendered to another individual or rescue.
