I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Nina's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Nina's Story...
Come meet me and all my canine friends on Saturday from 10am-3pm at the Petsmart in Chandler, 855 N 54th St near Ray Rd and I-10. See you there!

Rescued off an empty lot with her son, Squeakers (also up for adoption - they do not have to be adopted together but it would be a bonus! They enjoy each other so much!), surviving on food scraps and living out in the winter cold and rain we have had....she is a love. Shy, very shy....but once she comes around, she is an angel, a snuggler, crawling under the covers and sleeping there peacefully all night long. Not suitable for small children or busy household since strangers scare her and she needs gentle handling, but she will make someone a wonderful companion! For more information or to submit an application (found below), please email daisy320@cox.net. Rescue a forever friend!

About our adoption process: For more information or to request an adoption application (required), please contact the dog's foster listed above. There is no commitment by submitting the application - it just helps us determine if the pet you are interested in will be a good match for you. Next is a meet and greet at one of our adoption events - typically held on Saturdays at the Petsmart in Chandler, AZ (Ray Rd & I-10). Not every pet is at every event so please contact us first to find out when and where you can meet the pet you are interested in. If there are other dogs in your household, we suggest bringing them to ensure everyone gets along. The standard adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $140 (cash or check) which includes spay/neuter, current vaccinations, microchip and collar/tags.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix 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 Phoenix 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 Rat Terrier/Chihuahua breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
