Nellie's Story...
Our little lady Nellie is a chihuahua that came to us from our Newark facility in search of a wonderful home. Nellie is about 8 or 9 years old and most likely never had a good home. She was picked up as a stray and was in poor condition. Poor Nellie had to have some teeth extracted, was underweight, and was coughing and sneezing. Once we got her the good medical care she needed, Nellie bounced back and is now happy, healthy, and ready to be a part of a loving family. Nellie has some cataracts but she gets around perfectly fine. She is very well behaved and is just an all around great girl. Nellie is known to bury herself deep within a pile of blankets so she will require a nice, fluffy bed in her new home, but other than that, Nellie is very low maintenance. She just wants to be loved and cared for forever. Please consider opening your heart and home to our Nellie. 12/7/12 File#22127

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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