Limbo Chihuahuas - Chihuahua Rescue is a network of foster homes. We do not have a shelter. All animals are fostered in private homes where they receive love, socialization, and training. This enables us to understand their behaviors more clearly and help match them with the appropriate family, so the adoption will be a forever, happy and successful placement. We focus on educating our adopters and the community about spaying and neutering of animals, and why it is so critical for the healthy life of animals, as well as to help reduce the number of animals that are euthanized daily. We specialize in Chihuahuas and Chihuahua Mixes. Educating the general public on the medical and behavioral traits of these dogs as well as myths relative to size, origin, and types is essential to our mission. We also will assist in training issues if necessary.
We rescue Chihuahuas and Chihuahua Mixes that are destined for euthanasia. There are many shelters that euthanize on a regular basis. These shelters do not have the time or funds to find homes for all the animals that come through their facilities. We also assist people who find themselves in a situation where they may need to give up their beloved pet due to health or financial situations. Unfortunately, we do have to ask for a surrender fee to offset the veternarian costs. We take owner surrenders as space permits.
The rescue of Chihuahuas and Chihuahua Mixes awaiting euthanasia and homeless canines struggling for existence, to rehabilitate canines and place in homes and to encourage and educate the community in humane treatment of canines and the importance of spay/neuter.
Our adoption process is not difficult, but it is aimed at assuring that you and your new family member are good matches and will have a long and happy future together. A questionnaire gathers information about you and your family including your other pets. A brief interview is conducted; an adoption counselor will discuss the pet you have selected and your compatibility. We allways have dogs that have not been cleared to go on petfinder or to be advertised - .you can ask if other dogs are availbale and when they may be released for adoption.
Adoption fees vary due to age and size. We do give discounts to qualifying seniors. Many senior dogs are available for a donation and not a set adoption fee. We encourage senior persons to adopt dogs that are adults or seniors. Ask about our senior ot senior program.
All animals we have for adoption are spayed or neutered, Heartworm free, up-to-date on vaccinations and parasite free. An application is required to adopt a dog from Limbo Chihuahuas.
We are always in need of foster homes. They are our most important asset. With out foster homes we are not able to save lives. The only thing you provide is a loving home and guidance for your foster dog. You can also sponsor a dog. Adoption fees never cover the entire expense of getting a dog ready for adoption. Material items such as puppy pads, leashes, halters, collars, old towels, etc are allways welcome.
Any day ,. Remember: we are not a shelter; you will be calling a volunteer's cell phone. Messages can be left on the answering machine and will be returned ASAP. We can be reached by email at any time.
