NOTES FROM FOSTER FAMILY:

Chiquita is a sweet  6year old blond chihuahua girl that craves your attention belly rubs and snuggles. Being close to her person and sleeping with them. She’s learned to use steps. She’s a quick learner. She’s quiet in the house and likes to follow you. She sits and waits for you to come out of the shower.
   
She is a little sassy at first but as she adjusts to her surroundings and the dogs she’s good. She is not fond of cats. She wants to chase my Morris so I have to keep an eye on her otherwise she tolerates him laying on the couch nearby.
   
She is a good eater and gets excited when it’s meal time by jumping around like a bunny rabbit. She enjoys treats apples bananas carrots and the like.
   
She likes to play with toys and being outside with the other dogs.
Very sweet little girl.

Chiquita would do best in an adult only home - no children that live there or visit on a regular basis.  

Due to COVID-19 we are a little more limited on volunteers and the availability (and safety) of home visits.   Local applications are given first priority and some out of town areas will not be able to be processed.

At this time, we will only be able to process applications that have an excellent current vet history.  If you haven’t had a pet or verifiable vet history we will not be able to process your application.

Additional adoption info

Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment and is a responsibility that should be taken very seriously. Our dogs may have been lost, abandoned, abused or surrendered by a previous family and may require time to adjust to a new home. Many times there will be more than one application for a dog but we strive to match each dog with the most appropriate family. At this time, adoptions are limited to within the state of Florida. Our goal is to place healthy, well-adjusted dogs. All of our dogs are vet checked including spayed or neutered; heartworm tested (placed on preventative if negative and treatment started if positive); up to date on vaccinations; bloodwork; urinalysis; dewormed and provided with any other medical care necessary. Our dogs are also microchipped for permanent identification. Our adoption donation, which is normally $300.00 for adults and $400.00 for puppies, is to help offset these veterinary expenses. Our adoption contract allows for a dog to be returned within 7 calendar days for a full refund; otherwise, all donations are non-refundable after that time. If for any reason you decide you no longer can keep your adopted dog, the dog MUST be returned to Canine Castaways.

More about this rescue

Canine Castaways, Inc. is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing dogs in need, rehabilitating if necessary, and then adopting to approved homes where they will be loved as part of a family while also encouraging responsible pet care and striving to increase awareness of the consequences of pet overpopulation through educational programs and materials. We do not operate from a shelter but rather a network of foster homes in different areas of the state so it may not always be possible for you to meet more than one of our dogs at a time. While this can be frustrating for a prospective adopter, the foster home setting allows us to better evaluate the dogs' temperaments and help them adjust to family life. We deal primarily with dogs under 30 pounds but will also take in larger dogs if a foster home is available.
