Meet Chip

Hi! My name is Chip! I'm a neutered male chihuahua who needs to find a foster care home ASAP. I'm living in an animal shelter and I'm terrified of this environment. I hate it - all the noise, chaos, strange smells, hard floors, new people. But my personality is mellow, sweet and kind-hearted. I'm a very affectionate, friendly little guy. I'm housetrained and just want someone to love me for life. I LOVE other dogs and enjoy their companionship. I'm used to being carried around, so walking on a leash is a new thing for me. I hope someone out there will open their heart and their home to me. I'm a good little dog who deserves a chance at life. Adoption fee: $75.

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at the link above or send an email to to tell us which pet you're interested in and we'll send you a questionnaire that will help us make the best match for you and your new pet. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
